Hi, Congrats on owning one of the fastest production car engines in the world. The way you want to do this is - only tighten each bolt about a hand shake tight - start in the middle of the intake - tighten the one closest to you and to the center of the intake - about half or a good hand shake - tight. Then on the opposite side of the intake tighten the one directly across from you - Like the illustration above - keep going outward from the starting point - like in an oblong circle and you will be fine. Double check your torque requirements as I think 89 INCH -that's INCH pounds NOT foot pounds is all you need but - take down your vin# and call your local dealer too. He will even print out the sequence you want - for your particular vin number. Be sure to check for RECALLS while your there. Thanks for letting me serve you - please rate me 4 -- and comment good bad or indifferent. Thanks

The upper intake manifold, or plenum, is notorious for leaking coolant internally into the engine. Replacements are available from many aftermarket sources.

What can cause the engine on my 1999 Oldsmobile 88 LS 3.8L (3800 series 2) to make a loud air sucking sound in my intake manifold


With the engine running open the hood and look/listen for a vacuum leak. One of the larger vacuum hoses has likely come off.

3800 engine


More info on what vehicle your 3800 is in would help, but these engines are notorious for getting cracked intake manifolds. The EGR gasses pass thru the intake very close to the water passages around the throttle body. The hot gases will cause a crack and then water will get sucked into the intake.

Blown upper air intake manifold on gm 3800 series two engine


Parts stores carry a kit including a manifold and gaskets. When I do the job I always replace the lower intake gaskets because they leak too. Make sure the lower manifold is not warped around the rubber gaskets towards the throttle body side, a new or used loewr manifold might be needed to ensure a correct repair.
