# Remove the fuel pipe clip bolt.
# Remove the fuel pipe clip.
Disconnect the fuel feed pipe from the fuel injector rail.
Disconnect the fuel return pipe from the fuel injector rail.
Remove the fuel injector rail.
Remove the power steering pump from the front engine cover and reposition
# Disconnect the heater inlet pipe with heater hose from the lower intake manifold and reposition.
# Disconnect the radiator inlet hose from the engine.
# Disconnect the thermostat bypass hose from the thermostat bypass pipe and lower intake manifold pipe.
# Remove the lower intake manifold bolts.
# Remove the lower intake manifold.
# Remove the valve rocker arms and pushrods.

# Install the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.
Tighten

Tighten the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor to 23 Nm (17 lb ft).

Important

All gasket-mating surfaces need to be free of oil, and foreign material. Use GM P/N 12346139 (Canadian P/N 10953463) or equivalent to clean surfaces.
# Install the lower intake manifold gaskets.
# With gaskets in place apply a small drop 8-10 mm (0.31-0.39 in) of RTV sealer GM P/N 12346141 (Canadian P/N 10953433) or equivalent to the 4 corners of intake manifold to block joint (1).
# Connect the 2 small drops with a bead of RTV sealer that is between 8-10 mm (0.31-0.39 in) wide and 3.0-5.0 mm (0.12-0.20 in) thick (2).
# Install the valve rocker arms and pushrods .

(# Install the rocker arm bolt(*).
Tighten

Important

All lower intake manifold bolts need to be cleaned, free of any foreign material, and reused only if new bolts are unavailable. Use GM P/N 12345382 (Canadian P/N 10953489) or equivalent and apply to the old intake manifold bolt threads.

Important

Manufacturer recommends the center bolts be fully torqued before the diagonal bolts to assure proper seal ability.

Important

Lower intake manifold bolts in location 6 and 7 should be torqued to specification using a crows foot type tool.
# Install the lower intake manifold bolts.
Tighten

1. Tighten the lower intake manifold bolts in sequence to 7 Nm (62 lb in) on the first pass.

Notice

Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
