    It's hard to say if you've never done it before.An experienced pro would take 3-5 hours or so. Realistically if you have never done this before you should set aside a weekend and buy a haynes manual or one that is similar to aid you.
    Good luck!

My 2008 Chevy uplander engine light on and the code shows for cam shaft sensor and intake manifold what I do


The intake code means its leaking from the intake,bad gaskets, or a vacuum leak. check for bad gaskets on intake manifold. You can tell by putting a bit of oil around the maifold. if it is leaking the engine will flair up. To check this, External leak-- Coolant seeps through the broken intake manifold gasket to the outside of the engine. If its bad enough you will see coolant dripping from gasket. Coolant seeps through the damaged gasket to the inside of the engine, mixing with motor oil. If you suspect an internal leak, check your oil dipstick. Or if you have a substance under oil filler cap that looks like a milkshake, Oil is mixing with coolant. this means intake gaskets are bad, Now for the camshaft sensor, If you have a manifold leak. this could be giving you a false camshaft reading! Because, If sensor is bad vehicle will not start unless theres a wire problem. Symtoms of a bad sensor are--- engine sputtering, poor acceleration, stalling/inability to start. HopeI helped you out! Good-Day!

Oil in water circuit


oil in water is usually caused by bad intake gaskets. if the intake leaks, it will let oil in water. anti freeze flows in intake, if gasket is bad it will drain down inside of engine to the oil. good-day ! you may also see a anti freeze leak around outside of intake gasket that mounts to engine. if it is bad enough.

Coolant leak 05 denali


I will assume as usual that it has the 5.7L engine. The common cause for a coolant leak in these truck are the intake manifold. It either leaks externally or internally or both this is a common problem with this engine. You have to replace the intake gaskets. This a fairly big job. First check your engine oil if the level has risen and if the oil smells like anti freeze or looks like a milkshake kinda foamy then the chances are good that your intake is leaking.If all else fails you will have to do a coolant pressure test and you will seee the leak probably.It could also be your cylinder head gaskets but the most likely cause is the intake gasket. $100.00 for the gasket kit and about 5-6 labour. Change your oil & filter before you start it after you replace the gaskets. Then if your leak goes away change your oil & filter again about a week later to ensure you get all the coolant out of the engine oil this is very harmfull to the bearings in the engine.

Lossing antifreeze but no puddles we think its the antifreeze intake gasget?


if no puddles or no keaks you can see, then its probably your head gaskets, or the intake gaskets leaking. look all around intake to see if you see any leaks. if you do its your intake gaskets. how does the coolant look! on my car when the intake gasket was leaking, it made the coolant look milky and a chocolate type mixture. so check it out first, the intake gasket. Coolant may flow through the gasket to the inside of the engine and mix with the oil. Pull the oil dipstick out and look at it. Oil mixed with coolant will have a thick consistency. Examine the oil filter cap for any rusty-looking residue. good-luck.

Severe oil leak


Depending upon engine, and year, these cars get either oil pan and / or intake gasket leaks, with an occasional head gasket leak. If it is a 3.1 it is probably the intake leaking. But, who knows, as there is not much info to go on here ( year, engine size, etc ). Too, did you just get an oil change ( maybe the oil drain plug or oil filter are leaking ) ?

Loosing antifreeze but no leaks


The loss of antifreeze with no apparent leaks could be the sign of many things including blown head gasket, cracked tank, or leaking water pump. I would lean toward a head gasket first. Have you checked the oil for signs of antifreeze? A head gasket won't leak until the system is under pressure and running at normal temperature. You could also have a cracked head although that is pretty rare. Check the oil and plugs for signs of anti freeze. Also check the tanks on the side of the radiator they could be cracked which only leak while under pressure. Check all hose connections and if so equipped tranny cooler lines to make sure they are all attached correctly.

sounds like an intake leak or a vacuum leak , would start it and spray like carb cleaner or starting fluid on the top of the motor while it is cool not hot and see if you get a rise or fall in rpm,s if it does get a response chase down the vacuum leak, if not it is probally the intake gasket

Oil in over coolant tank


If there is oil inside the coolant liquid that is the head gasket.

Check first if oil can leak into the coolant tank from the cap.

Usually when you get oil into the coolant liquid you have an head gasket problem, do a compression test, or buy the home tester below.
