Well, When I finally get around to doing my lower intake gaskets, I know I'll use GM, That'* too much work for a risk.

Okay, i'll give the dealer a buzz tomorrow, but what do I do with the part number? Do I order it and have them ship it? Do I go to GM parts site online and order it? Sorry for all the confusion.. i'm not all here today.

If you explain that you're too many miles away to get the part from them, they'll probably give you the number to run through gmpd. That'* the best thing for now.

You can't be THAT far from a dealer if you live in MI, can you?

I'm trying to map one out, there has to be one closer, but i've been just about everywhere here.. and I know there is one in Merriville[sp?], which is about 60 minutes away from here. There has to be one closer. I have manipulated my mom into going to Merriville, if I wash her car weekly, and we go to costco, guess that'* the cost of getting a ride these days.

OMG!! A triple post!

I did a little research, got the part numbers for the head gaskets, and lower intake gaskets including seals. $30 per head gasket, $20 per lower intake gasket + 1 seal. If you do the math that is $100. Should I just go for the $115 for an entire overhaul gasket set? None of these prices include shipping.

Either Fel Pro or stock. We don't have any gasket issues really on our engines, so those are fine.

We HAVE had minor issues with aftermarket gaskets. We HAVE NOT had issues with the GM gaskets. Let us know how this all works out. If you need me to get the number from a dealer, I can get it for you.
