3.1 and 3.4 engines are bad for intake manifold gasket leaks. Check in the valley for coolant.

What is causing my 90 pontiac firebird 3100. v6 to be pouring antifreeze out the back side of the motor

Most probable would be the intake gasket. Make sure heater hoses are not leaking.

What is the intake torque sequence for a gm 3100 v6 engine on a buick skylark custom?

I'm an old timer.Just run all the bolts down to snug,start from center and go in an outward direction half torque.Then do it again to full torque.Otherwise,any PepBoys carry Hanes manuals for every vehicle on the road.Cheap too,12 to 15 bucks.

1996 oldsmobile ciera has hole in radiator that I patched with jb weld, did not keep hole closed, later car will drive fine, until it is sit at idle or at a complete stop, the car will run hot and cut off....

well if the leak is bad enough you should just replace the radiator. A cooling system relies on positive pressure to operate correctly. All that stuff they sell such as stop leak and bars, etc is just a temporary fix. If your coolant is not able to circulate through the motor completely you will have problems, warped head, blown gaskets, no heat also. I would just go to a scrap/junk yard and find a radiator. It will be pretty cheap since it is a 96 Olds.

Intermittant p0302,p0305 codes misfires

A code P0305 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
· Faulty spark plug or wire
· Faulty coil (pack)
· Faulty oxygen sensor (s)
· Faulty fuel injector
· Burned exhaust valve
· Faulty catalytic converter(s)
· Running out of fuel
· Poor compression
· Defective computer

If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires , distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad, especially given you had water issues. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced.
I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

I need to replace an intake gasket on a 95 oldsmobile cutlass ciera 3100 v6 front wheel drive. Any sugestions on how to remove the old gasket?

If you have never done this before, get a manual such as haynes. There's just too much to write out instructions here. When doing the job, make sure that you drain coolant first, and remove any debris that falls into engine after the intake is off. Regardless of how careful you are, some will remain so I recommend that after it's back together, run for about 1/2 hr then change engine oil.
good luck....If you need assistance with any specific problem along the way post back!!!

Difficulty starting

Could be throttle position sensor, idle air control motor, mass air flow meter, egr valve... if it hasn't had a tune up I would recommend it, since its over 12 years old those spark plugs and wires could use changing if it hasn't been done before.

Take it to a shop for diagnostics to be sure. It's hard to fix/diagnose something that is intermittant.
