Where is the intake gasket located on a 1999 lumina and how do you change it

there are 2 intake gaskets, on on each head where the intake sits, if you are unsure about the job i would get help, there is no room for error.

What would it cost to replace gasket on a 1998 Lumina V6 3.8

sounds like you have blown head gasket, or cracked head, did the motor run hot, if so, you can try head gasket, maybe you will get lucky, also i would replace intake gaskets, parts should be anywhere from 50.00 to 200.00 dollars, depends were you get them,need to clean out cyclinder with antifreeze in it, and check other ones too, pull plugs out get somebody to turn motor over watch for antifreeze coming out of spark plug holes, maybe you can put head gasket on and keep on riding...

Water found in oil pan

Most likely cause is the intake gasket leaking. The 3.1(4) and 3.8s are bad about it. Possibly a head/head gasket, but not as likely.
