2002 Chevy malibu 3100 V6.
Repairs done prior = i just changed the engine.
Repairs for this problem = i just changed the t-stat and the int manifold gasket

Question = i did the work above but the car is still overheating and losing water. I'm guessing it
has to be a head gasket. I'm going to go ahead and change both of them with a Felpro severe
duty gasket and hope and pray this solves the problem.

Is there any advice you can give or something i should pay close attention to also could i get the
torque specs in ft. Lbs for the head bolts.

Thanks for the donation.

I will e-mail those specs for head gaskets and intake manifold with push rod and valves right out
to you......

Chevy Malibu 3400 V6 Intake Manifold Gaskets
Question = i just changed the t-stat and still overheated i took it to a shop and was told it was a
blown intake manifold gasket.

I'm going to change this myself but would like to know what kind of precautions i should take to
prevent this from happening again and should i change the head gasket too because i have
read  that this engine is prone to overheating.
