No it does not. Go to a parts store and buy a Haynes Manual that is specific to your car.

manifold gaskets only need to be replace if they leak, or if the manifold has been removed for some reason

There are 2 of them. They are sandwiched between the heads and the engine block. In order to replace them the intake manifold and heads must be removed and exhaust manifold disconnected. Always replace both of them on a V6.

if it is a v6 engine it is located underneath the intake manifold and you have to removed the manifold to replace it. if it is a 4 cylinder it is located on the back side of the engine block below the manifold

To replace the Suburban manifold gaskets, unhook everything on the manifold, from fuel lines to vacuum hoses. The manifold needs to be unbolted then removed. Clean the old gasket material, then install with a new gasket. Make sure to use factory specs when torqueing down the bolts.

I just had the intake manifold gasket replaced on my 96 century yesterday and my bill was $450 but my gasket was only leaking out. If its leaking into your oil it may be more.

User Avatar

depends which one. the one in the cat is simple, unthread it and replace. the other in the manifold, not so easy.

Remove everything on top of the intake (hoses, fuel rails, linkages.) Unbolt the manifold and remove it. Clean the old gasket off and replace it. Reinstall all parts removed to get to the gasket.

There is no set millage for when you should replace a manifold line and accumulator. Most mechanics only replace when the accumulator and/or manifold lineรŠstart to fail.

i dont think they do, the lifters are right under the intake manifold

Remove the upper radiator hose, carburetor, intake manifold, and exhaust manifold. There are lots of hoses and wires going to various devices on the intake manifold and around the engine that have to be removed also. Additionally the alternator, water pump, smog pump, etc. need to be removed.

The upper intake manifold must be removed for access, as well as other components. Once that is done, the fuel rail can be unbolted and the injectors removed.

To replace the valve cover gaskets on a 2003 Jeep Liberty, the valve cover is removed. The old gasket is then removed from both the valve cover and the manifold (old gasket will come off in pieces on both sides). Then spread the sealant on the manifold, place the new gasket on, then put sealant on top of the gasket and replace the valve cover and bolt down.

The intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and head must be removed. This is a major repair that should only be done by someone with the knowledge and skill to perform it correctly.

User Avatar

Intake & exhaust manifold must be removed. Then the head must be removed. head inspected for cracks or warping, and new head gasket installed. Not a repair for a novice.

User Avatar

The intake & exhaust manifold must be removed and then the heads. Major job that should only be attempted by a professional.

my dad and me took off the manifold and air intake off to get to it. and it didn't take more than a hour

User Avatar

No. which manifold gasket are you wanting to replace? Intake or exhaust?

User Avatar

unbolt the head pipe then the manifold.

User Avatar

You have to replace the gasket because when you take the manifold off it brakes the seel and air will be sucked into the manifold and your vehicle will hardly run, and you wont be able to drive it You have to replace the gasket because when you take the manifold off it brakes the seel and air will be sucked into the manifold and your vehicle will hardly run, and you wont be able to drive it

The valve covers and rocker arms need to be removed as well as the intake manifold. Then remove the push rods to gain access to the lifters.
