Remove the intake manifold first, then the valve covers, make sure then the #1 piston is up to top dead center on compression stroke and the marks are lined up on the timing tab, loosen all the rocker adjustment nuts and remove all pushrods keeping the in order for re-installation, then remove all head bolts starting from the outside ends and in a circle. Best to have a torque sequence from a manual for that final thing. Then use a bar of some kind to pry under the head at manifold surface and pop them off. Be sure to keep those push rods in order for they are worn to configuration for each rocker and lifter.

Testimonial: "I was hoping for more detailedinstructiopns, such as what order to remove alt, pwr.str.pump, fuel injectors,exhaust manifold,E.T.C."

  • Rigger Nov 15, 2014

    There's no particular order involved with getting down to the head bolts, if it's in the way, remove it. Normally the injectors would stay in the anifold, just disconnect the fuel line and leave them in. Other than that, if anything is in the way move it. Most stuff, like the water pump and fan stay on the block. If it isn't in my way, I leave it alone.

SOURCE: Where is the egr valve in a buick le sabre

The EGR Valve on this 3.8 L engine should be in front of the throttle body on the drivers side of the engine just to the right of the front valve cover. If you locate where the intake tube/duct attaches to the throttle body and then move just a few inches toward the front of the car it should sit right in that spot. It will have two bolts attaching it to the intake/tube. Hope you find it!!

SOURCE: installing ignition module

Unscrew the ignition coil(s) from on top of the module...(leave plug wires attached)....and set aside noting coil position on module....unplug module and replace with a known working module.If there is grease under old module...transfer it to new module.Replace coil(s) and start her up.
TIP. While you are there,why not also change the crank sensor (if it not new) is THE trouble maker on these engines.
