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!!
It took 4.3 hours
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
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.
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.
