I'm looking for some advice on replacing the intake manifold gasket for the
LT1. I have a Chilton and Hayne's repair book but still want someone with
experience to tell the hands on story.
Is this something an amateur with mediocre mechanical abilities can tackle
with a set of sockets and wrenches or am I looking at some potential
disasters with sensors and the injection system? and should I change out
something else while having it appart?
The oil is leaking from the back of the intake as I run my hand back there
and get it on my fingers, apparently a common occurance according to what
I can smell the hot motor oil at times and see a small area of stain beneath
the car. Of course there is evidence of an oil leak from a drop clinging to
the bottom of the engine/transmission. I seem to be losing about a quart of
oil in a little less than 2,000 miles. I change the oil between 2 and 3k
anyway but the oil stain on new concrete is an embarrassment. ;)
