Default Printable Guides available!

Attached you will find the link to my dropbox where you can find this guide in word and pdf format for your printing pleasure. I have been given permission by xpbr2000 to post this and you will see credit was given on the last page. Also added some valuable information about finding and using a FWD 3800 for your build. In the dropbox you will find some other useful documents such as build sheet templates, exploded views of different parts of the car and other useful files. Enjoy!

No problem at all, what you did here was very time consuming and really deserves some more recognition. I will be adding this info to other sites as well. God Bless!

This is a great guide. I have just one question. Would this be the same procedure for a 3.4 v6 in 95 firebird? Thanks

it will be similar. however the specific harness connections and maybe the order could be different. but I know people have used this as a guide for the 3.4. I just dont know what is exactly different.

Thanks a million for this instructions. It will help me out a lot. I just got a 1999 Camaro with the 3800, and there is water in the oil, so I figured I would just pull the heads off and check them and the gaskets out. till I opened the hood and figured I would have to pull the motor, great to learn that I just have to drop it.

That's great! Glad its helpful. I've never tried pulling it from the top. I looks like a serious PITA. I've pulled mine twice. both times I used this write up. (well the first time i wrote the writeup lol) Good luck with your repair.

i'm going to wager that your LIM gaskets are toast. those are the first things to fail. You should go ahead and search for a new long block. water in the oil destroys bearings. you would need to replace all the bearings, the crank, and the cam shaft along with several other things i'm sure. But its good to check out the damage to be sure.
