How do you get the upper intake manifold off of a 98 Ford Explorer when the only thing that is attached is the EGR tube?

Sorry about the problem, andf I hope it hasn't been two weeks since you started. There are 8 screws that hold it down. Look right in the center area and you will find 2 recessed areas that are hiding the screws. They are the same size as the others.

I have the same problem with a 97 exp. All 8 screws are off and the intake body loose, but the egr tube will not come off. I am afraid to pry to much but can't find any fastener holding the tube to the intake.

How do you get the upper intake body off a 1997 exployer after all 8 screws have been removed the egr tube is holding it on

It's Attached to the throttle body on the side that's facing you when you pop the hood open. The throttle body is in between the intake manifold (The black plastic thing on the right) and the engine.

The PCV valve is located at the rear of the engine under the intake manifold. It screws into a metal box separate from the engine and about an inch behind it. There is no way to get a wrench onto it. You can find the valve by following a vacuum hose that comes from a rail attached by the bolts that hold the manifold to the head. I don't know how Nissan techs get the thing off unless there is a special wrench. It looks like the intake manifold would have to come off. I found the thing by going to Nissan and looking at their parts diagram on their parts computer.
