Well i have a 2005 3.4L Impala that has about 150k miles now. its been in this forum for yrs now. Well im having problems with an overheating car. ive narrowed it down to a pinhole size leak in the Aluminim water-tube line thats between the upper & lower intake manifold (between injector fuel rails). Does anyone know if that piece is replaceable or do i need to purchase whole new lower manifold since it seems pressurized or welded as one...or JB weld ok!? HELP!!!

In pressurized lines I'd be wary of using JB Weld.

I never worked on my old 3400 so I can't offer much beyond that.

As Z-spot pointed out . it is a replaceable Item
Get a new one. the hassle of pulling one off at a Salvage yard would out way the cost of a new one.

The liquid fix product will eventually give out as changes in heat, water, and pressure will cause it to leak sooner than later.

Update!!! Ok so i took ZSPOT and VictoryRed09 advice and bought new one from local GM dealership. i replaced water line and new gaskets. But now i found out further details on problem. I put everything back together and turns out its the passenger side freeze plug! FML. Any clue on how difficult it is to replace this one? ive replaced driver side about 6 months ago. But this one looks like it requires me to remove water pump and housing.......?
