Sounds like a blown headgasket or intake manifold gasket. Sounds like a blow intake gasket to me...It happened to My 86 Mustang and my 96 Lumina.
Should just be the gasket but check the upper side of the cylinder head while you have it apart to see if it has problems. Intake gasket leaks will present vacuum problems, if pressure is pushing air out of the affected area then it may be the head.
The torque is 89 inch pounds or 7.41 foot pounds. You should never reuse a transmission gasket. If you are doing work on the transmission, replace the filter, it usually comes with a new gasket.
Vacuum leak or blown intake gasket.

Just had this done (Feb 2011) at a local Ford dealership. The cost with an oil cahnge was $613.00.
You will need to replace the intire intake Gasket if you are SURE it is leaking were the gasket goes. On most of those engines it will be a BAD intake and ford redesigned the intake manifold. But it sounds like it has already been replaced scents it has got the alum. crossover bar. You need to look real close at the gaskets.
Yes. I believe there are six.
Here is a link that shows how to replace the intake manifold gasket. Bolt locations and torque settings. Hope this helps.
No, You don't put anything on Head, Exahust or intake gaskets. CJ actually you do put a 1/8'th inch bead of black silicone on the gasket to ensure no leaks occur and it also helps hold the gasket in place when your putting the intake manifold on. I'm a ford master technician, you ALWAYS use silicone when replacing intake and head gaskets. =DK
Defective plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, blown head gasket, burnt valve, worn rings, leaking intake gasket, or vacuum leak.

Get a manual on your car to make sure everything is torqued right .
Every place charges different. Call and ask.
Just be careful and not let the gasket slip. You can use a slight dab of Vaseline on the gasket to hold it in place while installing. Tighten the bolts in a criss cross pattern, slowly while pulling the intake down evenly on all bolts. Tighten it to the correct torque with a good clicker torque wrench. I do not know the torque for the intake which is critical. Contact your local Ford dealer on possibly search on-line.
There is no bottom head gasket. There is just a head gasket. One gasket for each head. The intake and exhaust manifold must be removed. Then the head is removed. This is a major repair, requiring skill, knowledge, and the proper tools. Take it to a professional.
"Manifold gasket" ? whick one? Upper intake MG,Lower intake MG or exhaust MG? I thinks you mean intake MG. The Upper intake MG is easy on. Just undo the bolt and clear the gasket materal, then replace new upper intake MG. The lower intake MG is a little bit hard. Carefully clear the old gasket material on the manifold and head, clear the bolt nad bolt hole in the head, then carfully install the lower intake MGand double check the coolant passage in ordeer to void the coolant leading. The last step is to torque corectly the bolt. good luck.
