Did this video help you?

COPYMAN: I've watched all 3 parts of this video series for this model Pontiac and I found it extremely helpful. Thank you for posting it. But I have to say that ROCKAUTO.COM has the exact same Dorman (615-205) gasket kit for about half the price of 1A AUTO. $43.64 (price includes shipping). Sorry guys. My grandfather always told me "my money is better off in my pocket than someone else's"

frankburnsjr: I'm looking for the gasket kit for an '04 Alero, but your site shows that nothing is available for that model year. I thought the '99-'05 Aleros all had the same LA1 V6? If so, would the gasket kit that your site suggests for the '03 work for an '04? If not, would the installation be substantially different than what's shown in this video? Thanks.

Chris Keegan: Hello, Can you offer any assistance in installing a new bypass pipe (the one that runs underneath the plenum).I have a 2001 Chevy Venture. The old one came right out, the new one has resisted every attempt to drive it into the hold near the thermostat. It's the Dorman part, 626-107, and it by all appearances is too large for the hole. Perhaps a custom tool would facilitate it's insertion, but every normal everyday tool seems useless. Help would be greatly appreciate.

calebcondie: When you check the oil to see if it's gotten foamy and brown from mixing with coolant, should you check it warm or cold? In other words, will the oil always appear that way if the coolant is getting in, regardless of temperature? I got an '04 Alero with this motor this summer and was warned about intake manifold gaskets going bad. Thanks fellas!

Teddy Banks: Working on a 96 Corsica 3.1, I have ordered the 48500 Lisle Push Rod Remover, don't plan to remove the valve covers, they are not leaking, will I still have to remove the PS Pump, there is a motor mount in front of it. I want to keep the parts removed to a minimum. Also not mentioned, should one replace the O-rings on the Injectors?

Greg Mitchell: How do you remember how to reassemble this all? Are you using a guide of some kind? Do you recommend a guide? Which one? Head gasket replacement is done at 7:10 right?

black93cobraGT: Any tips on the nut at 8:36? I can't get it out to save my life.

treblarefils: This is pretty much just like the 3100 engine right? I will be doing this job on a 2002 buick century

craiggus365: I am forever in your debt. This 3 part video was almost an exact match for the 2001 Malibu 3100 I did this weekend. 1st time working on a GM and I NEVER would have finished it in 1 day or correctly without you very detailed video. If you are planning to do this job on any of the motors in this family these 3 videos are fantastic! Thank you 1A Auto Parts! You saved my cars life AND my sanity AND my wallet!

Alonzo Butts: will this work the same with a 2003 malibu 

Nate Miller: Do you have a way of organizing all of the bolts or just remember where they go?

James Bond: nice video man thanks but how did you stay so clean? oh and please could you make a video to show where the egr connects to the evap? or what ever it hooks up too and also the rear valve cover hose?

Adrian Mendoza: I have 2002 pontiac aztek the same motor mod and I have the same problem on my car, how efficient is to make this work? I'll have the same problem at some future?

David Dawson: Very similar to my 3.1 liter in my Malibu. Other than the EGR valve, it looks exactly the same. 

but199018: Do you have any videos replacing the cylinder head gaskets?

swilson7674: Im having a difficult time with the 3rd power steering bolt. Any tooling suggestions? Ive removed the large bolt to access it but still having trouble.

Iwatchvideosattimes: I have a hairline crack in the housing that the temperature sensor goes in, can that be welded or do i need to change the whole manifold because its one piece? please

oldguy623: do you guys sell these kits for 95 firebirds with the 3.4?

tj32333: is it possible to just replace one gasket or do i have to replace all of them ?

2009jktj: After doing this repair on seven different cars, I would recommend inspecting the camshaft position sensor wiring while the lower intake manifold and power steering pump are out. I've seen the insulation on the sensor wires damaged by the oil/coolant leaking. If needed, it only takes a few minutes to replace the cam sensor. The cam sensor can be seen after the power steering pump is removed at the 15:25 mark in the video if you don't know where to look.
