Thanks that would be bad. I'll clean a little more before I go to sleep and try to put it back together tomorrow. I was looking at the lower intake gasket kit and found two o-rings. Does anyone know where the go? I didn't see any when I was tearing down other than in the map/pcv?

I found that the o-rings go to the coolant elbow which was in decent condition. I had the hardest time finding a replacement anyway.

I think there should be two o-rings that go in the coolant ports that lead to the TB.

Okay, here we go. I found out that my elbow is a newer elbow cause I found parts of the old one left in the manifold. So right those o-rings do go somewhere else.

which o-rings?

there'* two on the elbow, one at each end. the upper has two in the pcv system... and the fuel injectors have one on each end - the end that goes in the rail, and the end that goes in the LIM.

oh, and btw



on those pics... those should be put into a sticky on why it'* important to change the lowers when you change the uppers.

are your new lower gaskets black with metal inserts?

Yeah I'm definitely the poster boy for that! The O-ring are for the heater hoses behind the tensioner at least thats what the gm parts guy at the dealer said. And yes the new gaskets have metal inserts.

Glad they got you the right inserts.

You pulled the heater lines to do the job?
