All your fault

Postby littlebeaver » Thu Jul 21, 2016 5:15 pm



It's all your fault that I pulled the engine out of my daughters Bonneville,,,, :shock: :shock: :shock: Why? Because you guys pushed me along to learn stuff, neat stuff, mechanical stuff... Also because the mechanic wanted my right and left arm to change the engine out, $3.800.00 yaaaayyyaaa yaaa :shock: :lol: Fudge man...Screw that...I can do the job....I am skilled, I am intelligent enough I think....Well I got the sucker out.... 02 Bonneville 3.8 series II K model.... I wanted to share....I am no longer a virgin engine puller....It's easy once you do one..... :lol: :lol:
# 6 bolt was a SOB ,  had to move two brackets or braces and a sensor just to see the head of the bolt, it took two long extensions to reach it from the front of the engine.....

I am trying to learn a few things doing this and save a lot a lot of money, tomorrow I will go to Pick & Pull to seek a good engine... Yep, new plugs and wires, sensors, and maybe a starter, the engine had 176k on it....Time for a new starter...I know this much, the engine at pick & pull should be out in a hour or two.... Because I know exactly what to look for now, where as, before I was unsure... :shock:
.....If any one of you ever pulled a 3800, you will know that #6 bolt is hidden well, in the chambers of Hell :lol: ,,,Ok a engine from the junk yard is $156.00 or so, Wow,,,, sure I'll pull one....They even supply the hoist... :shock:

When you put back together turn flywheel or converter so bolt holes look lined up saves fighting later on if your close

when you put it back in make sure the torque converter is all the way in the front pump on trans or #6 bolt will haunt you when u pull the transmission to fix it also a new converter seal while you are there

Thanks, I will listen and learn..... Like anything, doing it and learning as you go is the best lesson, I have a fix on a engine at the local pick and pull, it had front end damage so that stopped the car and it got a home there, I see no damage to the engine however the radiator sure made it look like there was, the top part of the radiator was bend over and it look terrible, I looked at it for some time and it didn't make contact with the engine, 87k on the clock, $200.00 with the starter and alt. maybe alittle more...I hope it does well...If not I can take it back....

Hello, Iaustin thanks for the advice, I will place a straight edge to make sure I have the converter all the way in...What seal are you guys talking about again? Converter seal????

the front pump seal that the torque converter slides thru an while you are bolting up the trans to the motor spin the converter every so often so you no its in all the way other wise you will bust the front pump

Engine back in the vehicle... I cranked her up, sound like lifters were clicking but the oil made it's way up into the top end and the noise stopped....

I found a antifreeze leak just below the throttle body, uggggg, that means it's probably the plenum gasket or the lower intake gaskets, hummmm , I removed the top plenum and discovered oil in the intake on both sides where the bolts are down inside...Not supposed to have any oil in there, soooo..... I removed the intake and put in lower gaskets after cleaning the heck out of the surfaces, I used some gasket sealer on the corners of the flat area, or at the base of where the intake sits and I put in all the bolts, I used 3 steps in tightening the bolts in the correct sequence according to the manual.. I feel I did a good job at it,,, took my time triple checked everything... :shock:
