How to ensure you get a non leaking Intake manifold and other things on chevys

I have ran into many chevys and other vehicles where I change the gasket and still have leaking then I came accross a method that allowed me to get it done right and have no leaks. There is a gasket tacking glue that you buy from your local auto parts store its called 3M weatherstripping and gasket sealer (YELLOW). Once you have the intake manifold or whatever your replacing the gasket on make sure you clean it throughly because any oil or substance on it the seal will most likely leak. Use a gasket scraper, then a razor blade then take carb or brake cleaner and spray in on a rag and wipe it down throughly make sure its dry. Then use a small amount of the 3M to attach the gasket to the intake surface then you can use silicone on the front and back of the intake instead of using the gaskets they give you for the front and back, The silicone you have to use is called nissan silicone which can be bought at the nissan dealership if thats not available get the toyota silicone from toyota. Put a large bead in the corners and make a large bead accross the front and back now wait about 5 to 10 minutes the silicone will get a flat black color to it with toyota and with the nissan it will just stiffin a little. Then bring the manifold down right over the bolt holes and press down firmly get all the bolts started then tighten from the middle to the front and back diagnally. Once torques normally around 20ft pounds look up in your manual let it setup for as long as you can perferably 12 hours but atleast 1 hour then your done no leaks and perfect seal. This silicone can be used to seal up alot of other leaks as well like valve covers thermostat housings ect. The 3M is absolutely wonderful for getting the gaskets set in place and will save you alot of time and money. I hope this article helps people out thats why I am here because I enjoy helping others out.

What helps remove silicone under stovetop

rEMOVING SILICONE IS EASY WHEN IT IS SET UP AND COLD. The more or warmer it gets the more pliable it becomes, like gum. If it is thick, slowly peel back like a sheet of paper. If thin, carefuly use a razon blade scraper and holding at a right angle, scrape the silicone. Using any solvents will leave you with the byproduct called gooey mess. Good Luck, please be careful with the tools you may need and use.

How to remove silicone from glass?

Hi, you need windex and new razor blades.Spray with windex where the silicone is and clean it with the blade.Based on how big is the area that you clean you might have to change the blade few times.
Its important to go with the blade only in one direction not back and fort so you dont scratch the glass.
I hope that helps.

What is the best kind of kitchen scraper?

Kitchen scrapers work all pretty much the same way. But i would say that the silicone kind, with a handle, is the most useful for all kinds of needs. It cleans very well pots and bowls of dough and can be of a harder or softer material so to fulfill the different needs.
However, if you need a scraper that specifically cuts hard doughs and cleans counters, you need the plastic or metal square one, which is stronger and more manageable, more suitable for that kind of operation.

Valve covers leaking

Is the valve cover leakage coming from a crack on cover or valve gasket (between the cover and engine)?
If it is coming between the valve cover and engine, then you will need a new gasket. They range between 20-50 bucks depending on vehicle.
If you can not afford one, for a quick fix, but needs to be corrected as soon as can afford. Your able to make your own quick fix gasket using high heat gasket silicone. It would have to cool off completely before adding silicone making your own bead around the contour of bottom of valve cover then sit for a few hours before starting it.
If you can afford a new gasket; remove the old one. It might take a scraper.
Take some sand paper and clean the where the gasket was really good. Wipe clean then add some high heat gasket silicone. then place the gasket on the silicone. Add a bead of high heat gasket silicone to the engine where the valve cover would go, that helps keep it in place when screwing the screws back on.
If you leakage is coming from a cracked valve cover, i would advise replacing it. I am sure you could find a used cheap one at a local junk yard.

Good luck and hope this helped.
