Bellow is an "example" of the tightening sequence for an intake manifold. The sequence is usually the same for most vehicles, but you should refer to a Haynes/Chilton manual for your specific make and model of vehicle to verify tightening sequence and torque specs. Please rate/vote this reply if you found this information helpful.

I have a 97 buick lesabre with six cyl. It surges at stops then crawls. The mechanic cant figure it out. Any ideas? Thanks


Mechanic has probably already checked, but a vacuum gauge connected to manifold vacuum should show if there is a vacuum or air leak from the intake manifold.

WHAT IS THE TORQUE ON A 94 BUICK CENTURY 3.1 V6 ON THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST PUSH RODS?


Tightening sequence would be to tighten from the center most bolts to the outer most bolts.
Intake Upper Bolts = 18 lb.ft.
Intake Lower Bolts = 10 lb.ft.
Exhaust Manifold Nut = 12 lb.ft
Exhaust Manifold pipe = 22 lb.ft.
Exhaust Manifold Heat Shield = 18 lb.in.
Rocker Arm Torque Nuts = 18 lb.ft.

Hope this helped you ?? if you need more info, get back to me.....

Toquer on the intake


start in the center working in an expanding square pattern crossing over the manifold on the first 2 bolts. tighten in 3 steps. these are low torque fasteners, don't over tighten & use locktite.
If reusing the fasteners, apply threadlock GM P/N 12345382 or equivalent to the threads of the lower intake manifold bolts.
Install the lower intake manifold bolts.

Notice: Proper lower intake manifold fastener tightening sequence and torque is critical. Always follow the tightening sequence, and torque the intake manifold bolts using the 3 step method. Failing to do so may distort the crankshaft bearing bore alignment and cause damage to the crankshaft bearings.

Tighten the lower intake manifold bolts.

from front of engine tighten 2 bolt back left side, then 3rd bolt back right side, then 3 bolt back left side, then 2nd bolt back right side, then back bolt left side, back bolt right side, then front bolt left side, then front bolt right side

Tighten the bolts on the first pass in sequence (1-8) to 3 N·m (27 lb in).
Tighten the bolts on the second pass in sequence (1-8) to 12 N·m (106 lb in).
Tighten the bolts on the final pass in sequence (1-8) to 15 N·m (11 lb ft).

    Diagram on how to remove and install a spider fuel injector core on a 1994 chevy blazer s10


    Here is the removal procedure, and the procedure is the same for both the V-6 and the V-8 Vortec engines. Also, be certain to put engine oil on the "o"-ring seal for the fuel injector assembly before installing the upper intake. Let me know if you require any further assistance.

    REMOVAL:

    1. Disconnect the battery negative cable assembly from the battery negative terminal.

    2. Remove the air cleaner assembly.

    3. Remove the wiring harness connectors and the brackets and move aside.

    4. Remove the throttle cable and the bracket from the upper intake manifold.

    5. Remove the cruise control cable, (if equipped).

    6. Remove the fuel lines from the intake to the rear of the block.

    7. Remove the ignition coil and the bracket.

    8. Remove the upper intake manifold.

    INSTALLATION:

    1. Install the upper intake manifold gasket.

    2. Install the upper intake manifold. Use care not to pinch the injector lines between the upper and lower intake manifolds.

    3. Install the upper intake manifold bolts. Note the marks made at disassembly for proper stud location. Install the two corner studs first in order to help align the two halves. NOTE: Other than the two torque passes listed below, the OE Manufacturer did NOT address or supply a bolt tightening sequence for the upper Intake Manifold for this model year, or other model years where this 2 piece manifold setup is used. A "Play It Safe" final tightening sequence would be to tighten from the center most bolts to the outer most bolts.

    4. Tighten the bolts in two steps: a. Tighten the bolts on the first sequence to 5 Nm (44 inch lbs.). b. Tighten the bolts on the final sequence to 10 Nm (88 inch lbs.).

    5. Install the purge solenoid and bracket.

    6. Install the ignition coil and bracket.

    7. Install the PCV hose et the upper intake manifold.

    8. Install the fuel lines from the intake at the rear of the block.

    9. Install the cruise control cable (if equipped).

    10. Install the throttle cable and bracket from the upper intake manifold.

    11. Install the wiring harness connectors and brackets.

    12. Install the air cleaner assembly.

    13. Connect the battery negative cable assembly to the battery negative terminal. - Tighten the bolt to 15 Nm (11 ft. lbs.).

    HOW DO I TIGHTEN THE LOOSE BELT AFTER INSTALLATION ON 97 BUICK LE SABRE? REALLY NEED A DIAGRAM TO MAKE SURE I INSTALLED THE SERPENTINE BELT CORRECTLY.


    There may be a diagram imprinted on fan shroud. There is a belt tensioner that tightens the belt. Also when installing belt be sure you have grooved part of belt riding on grooved pulleys. And flat side of belt riding on flat sided pulleys.

    Can I swap the engine in my 1997 Buick LeSabre with an engine from a 1995 Buick Riviera?


    only if it is the same displacement(aka 3.8Litre) and even then you shoul use the intake manifold from the 97 with all the correct sensors and wiring.computer programs are not the same between the 2 cars even if same manufacturer. or change computer and wire harness from the Riv the the LeSabre.

    Just put new spark plugs in 97 buick lasabre. Car now starts and runs, but is blowing out white smoke. Is this blown head gaskets? Does it have anything to do with the fuel pump put on 3 weeks ago?


    these cars have issues with coolent getting into the intake... headgaskets are not one of the issues . check plugs for coolent. upper plastic intake has coolent flow in to chambers if u will, and over time they get micro cracks and brittle ...lower intake manifold gaskets are plastic also. ..cyl. heads are cast iron not alluminum . lower intake manifold is alluminum and upper intake is plastic .. on my lesabre a plastic 90 degree elbow connected to the lower intake manifold to the heater hose housing. the belt tensioner is connected to this housing im refering to. not saying for sure, but if it is this is usually why...
