HOW TO CHANGE THE SUPERCHARGER OIL ON A GM 3800 SERIES II V6
just a quick instructional video of how to properly change the Supercharger oil on your 3800... some people say just to re-top off your Supercharger, but many owners as well as a good number of master mechanics ive talked to about it that worked on these cars, they say to full out replace it by draining it and putting new oil in, simply because if you know anything about oil youd know that it breaks down over time especially because of heat and friction. new oil handles it better and keeps it properly lubricated and cooler temperature. old oil will be dirty, maybe burned, and possibly ineffective if broken down enough over time. which method you trust is up to you, im not saying either method is right or wrong, this one just makes more sense to me, therefore thats the one i do on my car so we made the instructional video for this, if you choose simply to top off your oil, do all the same steps just dont empty the old oil first.

Support 3800 vendors. I dont work for any of these guys but without them a
lot of us wouldnt be able to mod. Our cars are not supported by the big
aftermarket companies so heres a quick plug for the 3 vendors left.

HOW TO DISABLE DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS ON A 1997-2003 PONTIAC GRAND PRIX
READ "UPDATE" BELOW........Just explaining a few options on how to disable
the daytime and automatic lights on a grand prix, couldnt find any videos
on the grand prix specifically on youtube but found quite a bit of info in
forums online. figured id make a video on it.
alright so ive been having people question various problems that they had
and i found a couple links that may be of some assistence for their
individual cases, cars can be like people, so as to say each one has a
different personality and will react differently to various things you do,
here is one link that answers MANY questions about grand prix's in general,
and the second link is for a control module that you can buy, to add to
your car (recommend professional installation if you dont know what youre
doing), that will allow you to enable or disable the feature hopefully
without any further issues with your DRL's.
i hope this helps, give me some feedback on what you think about these
links, and if you get that module from zzp, please feel free to update us
on how well it works and how easy it was too install.

Weird 3800 Engine Noise
Top swapped 01 impala 3.8L. XP Hot Cam. 2.5" Down Pipe. Fender Well Intake.
It seems to always make this odd noise I simply can't put my finger on.
Things that I know it is NOT:
Acc. Belt Tensioner,
S/C Belt Idler Pulleys,
S/C Belt Tensioner.
And I don't believe it's the A/C as it makes the same noise with the clutch
engaged or not.
GM 3800 Series II Supercharged Intake Manifold Leaks
This is an all too common problem with supercharged 3800 series engines.
GM used a plastic lower intake manifold gasket that would break down over
time causing coolant to leak into the oil. If left unfixed, it would get
worse to the point where your engine starts knocking from poor lubrication.
Your oil will look really milky as a result. This engine had only 60k
miles on it when I replaced these gaskets and its a good thing I did. GM
makes a newer revision aluminum gasket set that fixes this problem. You
can get those from a GM dealer, they are the set that has locating pins,
the stock ones did not, but these do fit fine.
Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
