You need to remove the carburator from the engine and flip it over. There are screws on th the bottom. There are also 2 long screws on the top that go into the bottom plate that need to come out . They are on the side roughly beside the back of the front 2 barrels. You have to unhook the accelerator pump rod and remove the choke linkage to get it completely off. Hope this helps.

you could have a bad intake gasket that is allowing coolant to go into oil. if the head gasket is good then the other thing it could be is a crack in the engine.

Head gasket or lower intake gasket on 98 Blazer

this does sound like a head problem (hopefully just the gasket). pulling the head with the exhaust manifold attached is possible but tricky and difficult. risking the bolt and drilling it out if it snaps would be alot easier. I would strongly suggest having the head checked while its off (so you dont rebuild to find that you wasted time and money on a bad head)

My 2000 malibus temperature gauge is always above half and eats anitfreeze like crazy! whats wrong with it?!

Most likely internal head gasket leak, all 3.1L and 3.4L engines are notorious for intake gasket (external leak can be seen on either side of engine intake manifold) or head gasket leaking (usually internally). If it goes thru coolant and there is no obvious leak on the ground than its internally burning the coolant. If leaking on the ground check below water pump while running, it may be leaking also. Ultimately its probably head gaskets.

What's the difference between a blown head gasket and a blown intake gasket?

The head gasket goes between the block and the head, and seals the combustion process, and cooling water, and (if oil is pumped obove the heads to valve components) oil pressure.

Intake gaskets seal between the intake manifold and the head, and seal against intake vacuum, and in many cases, coolant.

A badly blown head gasket will so destroy compression in the cylinder that you can hear uneven cranking as that cylinder comes up on compression, kind of a “whir, whir, WHIR, whir, whir, WHIR, whir” with the capitalized whir being the engine spinning much faster due to no compression holding the starter back.

You will never be able to hear a problem with an intake manifold gasket until the engine actually starts to fire and/or run.

Where is the MAF sensor located on a 1988 Chevy GMC truck

are you sure this vehicle isnt carbureted? carbureted engines dont have maf sensors. if it has a maf sensor, it will be in the intake ducting somewhere between the throttle body and the air filter.

In some cases I have seen blown intake manifold gaskets cause a milkshake in the crankcase inspect the lower intake gaskets coolant passages at the end of the cylinder heads for damage. I would suggest a compression test and a cylinder leak down test befor further tear down.

My 2001 jaguar s-type is overheating. does anyone

The top radiator hose should connect to the thermostat housing, bolted onto your engine. Make sure you get a new gasket.
Hope this helps... Good luck!
