It is between the upper and lower intake manifold. The gasket is an o-ring type.
Assuming this is a 4.3L engine, the upper intake manifold gasket would be between the upper intake manifold and the lower intake manifold.
there is no upper intake gasket, only a front and rear
yes it is
Remove the camshaft sensor wire hanger from the upper intake plume then take the upper intake plume off then the sensor. Reverse order to reinstall. No need for a new gasket in between the upper intake and lower. There is an o-ring. I think a 10 mm socket will take off the intake. Don't remember...
"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.
a bad head gasket will result with compression and oil/coolant mixxing in the blocka badupper or lower intake gasket will result with coolant in crankcase or exaust manifold which causes white smoke comming out of the tail pipe...if your gonna change the upper or lower intake gaskets change them both at the same time... it saves you money in the long run
if its a 3.1, the possibility is the intake manifold gasket!!
I had the upper intake gaskets replaced at a cost of $181.00 but this also included new spark plugs. Two intake gaskets $18.50
It took 4.3 hours
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.
I'll assume Lower Intake Gasket, since they tend to cause vacuum leaks. Get a manual from Autozone and expect about 4 hrs labor, you need to take off the upper intake manifold just to replace the Lower Intake Gasket. Probably should change/clean the PCV valve while ur in there. Good luck, man.
The difference between the upper and lower ozone is huge. They are opposite. One is good, other bad.
The 3.8 GM V6 is prone to blown intake gaskets much more than blown head gaskets. The blown intake gasket causes a loss of coolant which in turn causes overheating and a blown head gasket. The problem exists with most 2000 to 2003 vehicles equipped with the 3.8 Liter V6. There were defects in the upper intake manifold gasket, throttle body nuts, and the throttle body gasket.
Remove the air intake, throttle cables, and throttle body. Remove vacuum lines then unbolt and remove the upper intake. Remove the fuel rails. Unbolt the lower intake and remove the intake to replace the gasket. Reverse the process to finish the installation.
What does tolerable upper intake level mean?
Upper intake gasket? Not much. It's a quick and easy repair (about 30 minutes) with a part going for $12 to $30. Figure on $45 to $160.Lower could be from $750 to $2600 depending on local labor rates and thoroughness of the mechanic. Aren't you glad yours isn't leaking?
the difference is that the upper peninsula is up and the lower peninsula is low
In a 93 it is under the upper intake. You have to take the upper intake off to get to it
check the upper intake manifold gasket you will need to remove the ac compressor to check this
It is another name for the upper part of the intake manifold.It is another name for the upper part of the intake manifold.
It should be fine, this is a very simple operation. No worries. Be sure to review the "Related Questions" below for extensive information about the Windstar intake manifold -including links to plenty of instructions on removing the upper intake manifold.
