Replace no 3 coil


if im not mistaken the number 3 coil is on the right hand side of the motor so you will need to remove the intake manifold to gain access to it.
Intake Manifold Removal
  1. Remove the engine cover (if equipped).
  2. Remove the air filter outlet pipe.
  3. Remove the positive crankcase ventilation hose.
  4. Remove the air cleaner resonator.
  5. Disconnect the throttle body electrical connectors.
  6. Disconnect the electrical connectors.
  7. Detach the vacuum hoses.
    • Press the retaining ring. (1)
    • Detach the vacuum hose. (2)

  8. Disconnect the vacuum hose.
  9. Detach the injector harness electrical connector from the intake manifold support bracket.
  10. Remove the intake manifold support bracket.
  11. Detach the engine wiring harness bracket.
  12. Detach the intake manifold support bracket.

    NOTE: Remove and discard the O-ring seal.

How to replace an intake manifold gasket on a 1996 gmc jimmy


Hello,

Here is a detailed summary on the procedure of how to replace the intake manifold gasket on a 1996 gmc jimmy;
REMOVING THE UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD(PLENUM)
STEP 1 Disconnect Battery (may not be absolutely necessary, but a good practice to avoid shorting a positive wire to ground).


STEP 2 Remove serpentine belt.

STEP 3 Drain the coolant.

STEP 4 Remove air cleaner ducting and disconnect wires.

STEP 5 Disconnect throttle linkage and bracket.

STEP 6 Disconnect cruise control cable.

STEP 7 Remove brake booster vacuum hose at manifold.

STEP 8 Remove PCV hose.

STEP 9 Remove ignition coil and bracket.

STEP 1O Remove purge solenoid and bracket.

STEP 11 Relieve fuel pressure at test port.

STEP 12 Remove fuel lines and bracket.

STEP 13 Remove upper intake manifold.

REMOVING THE LOWER INTAKE MANIFOLD
STEP 1 Remove the distributor and label the spark plug wires.

STEP 2 Remove heater hoses and bypass hose.

STEP 3 Remove upper radiator hose.


STEP 4 Remove EGR valve?

STEP 5 Remove sensors and bracket on right side.

STEP 6 Remove EGR tube, clamp and bolt.

STEP 7 Remove PCV valve (and replace).

STEP 8 Unbolt A/C compressor and move it aside.

STEP 9 Loosen compressor bracket and slide forward, but do not remove it.

STEP 10 Remove alternator bracket bolt (or remove alternator and set aside)

STEP 11 Unplug all vacuum lines from intake manifold.


STEP 12 Unplug all electrical connectors from manifold.

STEP 13 Take note of the intake manifold bolts and mark the location of the bolts.


STEP 14 Remove intake manifold bolts, and manifold.

STEP 15 Clean mating surfaces

THE MAIN INSTALLATION
STEP1 Set the new gaskets in place and apply silicone to flat areas on front and rear of engine block.

STEP2 Apply thread locking compound to manifold bolts.

STEP 3 Install the manifold and tighten bolts to 35 ft-lbs, in proper sequence.

STEP4 Install the distributor.

STEP5 Install the upper intake manifold.



The remaining installation procedures are basically the reverse of removal.


Have a nice day.

    Note, removing the upper intake manifold is not necessary when removing lower intake manifold, they are removed as an assembly.
    Disconnect negative battery cable. Drain cooling system. Remove air cleaner assembly and inlet duct. Mark and remove distributor. Remove upper radiator hose at thermostat housing. Disconnect accelerator and cruise control cables. Remove heater hoses from intake manifold. Remove EGR pipe.
    Disconnect fuel lines at rear of engine. Remove AC compressor and set aside(leave hoses connected). Remove canister purge solenoid. Disconnect theSCPI injector, ignition coil, Ignition Control Module, generator,IAC motor, TP sensor, O2 sensor, Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve and Engine Coolant Temperature sensor wiring harness connectors. Remove PCV valve and hose. Remove lower intake manifold bolts. Remove lower intake manifold.
    Installation.
    Always use New O-rings when reconnecting fuel lines at rear of engine. Apply a bead of RTV silicone sealer along the front and rear sealing surfaces of the block.See Fig.6. Install new gaskets and intake manifold on block while RTV is still wet to the touch. Use Threadlock 12345382 or equivalent to lower intake manifold bolts. Tighten lower intake manifold bolts in sequence to specification table. See fig. 7. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.f52665d.gifabc2b5f.gif

    Intake manifold gasket / replace


    3.8L Engine

    NOTE The 3.8L (VIN K) non-supercharged engine uses a two-piece intake manifold consisting of an upper air plenum which mounts the throttle body and a lower intake manifold assembly which houses the fuel injectors. The 3.8L (VIN 1) supercharged engine uses a similar lower intake manifold. The supercharger serves as the upper manifold.
    Lower Manifold

    NOTE Two bolts which fasten the lower intake manifold to the cylinder head are accessible only after the upper intake manifold is removed. These bolts are located in the right front and left rear corners of the lower intake manifold. Remove the upper intake manifold to service the lower intake.
    The 3.8L (VIN 1) supercharged engine uses a manifold similar to the 3.8L (VIN K), but the supercharger serves as the upper manifold.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. On 3.8L (VIN 1) engines, remove the supercharger assembly. Please see the procedure in this section.
    3. Remove the upper intake manifold using the procedure above.
    4. Remove the EGR outlet pipe from the intake manifold.
    5. Detach the engine coolant temperature sensor wiring harness from the sensor.
    6. Remove the lower intake manifold bolts and carefully lift off the manifold.

    To install:

    1. Clean all parts well with degreaser, especially the gasket seal surfaces on the upper and lower manifold pieces and between the lower manifold and the cylinder heads..
    2. Install new gaskets to the cylinder heads and new seals to the engine block. Carefully lower the manifold into place. Apply thread-locking compound to the bolt threads. Make sure to install the two hidden bolts in the lower intake manifold. Hand start all bolts, then torque evenly to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm). Follow the toque sequence, starting in the center, then working outwards in a circle.
    3. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of the removal process.

    Upper Intake Manifold (Plenum)
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. On 3.8L (VIN 1) engines, remove the supercharger assembly. Please see the procedure in this section.
    3. Tag for identification, then remove the right side spark plug wires.
    4. Disconnect the ignition wires from the fuel rail.
    5. Remove the fuel rail. Please see Section 5.
    6. Remove the cable bracket from the intake manifold.
    7. Remove the throttle body.


    NOTE Two bolts which fasten the lower intake manifold to the cylinder head are accessible are accessible only after the upper intake manifold is removed. These bolts are located in the right front and left rear corners of the lower intake manifold.
    1. Remove the upper intake manifold bolts and carefully lift the upper intake manifold from the engine.
