Hello, yes you can put the intake gaskets on with the motor in .I have replaced them on about ten or fifteen of these vans. You will find it a little awkward but it can be done.It just takes a little longer than a car. loosen the two front mounts and pull the engine forward. Please rate this answer.

I have a 2000 Oldsmobile silhouette mini van done replaced the thermostat but its still running hot


Your engine is notorious for having the intake manifold and gaskets go bad. If you are loosing water pull the #3 spark plug in the morning, when the engine is cool and see if there is moisture on the plug. If so you will need to have the top of the engine torn down, and at the least, change the intake gaskets.

Help me with a motor interchange


Believe it or not all GM 300 series motors are very similar and they all give head or intake problems whether its in the grand am, grand prix or montana the 3.4 is just that a 3.4. GMs not going to make a different 3.4 for each car they're all the same, it will fit. Do yourself a favor and make sure its not the intake gasket thats the actual culprit.
