to remove the exhaust manifold you must first remove the power steering resivoir and the alternator which is fairly easy. DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY use a 3/8 drive on the belt tensioner to take the belt off of the alternator pulley. the wrench must be pushed towards the front of the car to loosen it. the power steering resivoir is held in by two nuts i think, there is also two hoses that must be removed. have a container ready to catch the p/s fluid. remove the alternator by removing some bolts on the top which hold a hose in place. then disconnect the red wire and two other bolts that hold it in place, one should be on the top facing the passenger side and the other on the bottom facing the driver side. after removing these i used a crow bar to gently pry the alternator out. remove the two bolts connecting the manifold to the catalytic converter. they are between the radiator and engine, just follow the manifold down. you will probably have to get under the car to get to them. also extensions and a swivel socket make it a lot easier. also try spraying the bolts with PB Blaster or something of that sort. mine came off very rough. If you want to unplug the spark plug wires you can but you dont have to. then you just have to undo the bolts holding the manifold on. before reinstallation make sure the connecting surface is clean. make sure you have a NEW exhaust manifold gasket and installation is the reverse of removal good luck

The exhaust manifold needs to have a gasket in place to help seal the juncture between the manifold and the engine. After the gasket and gasket sealer are in place, tighten the bolts for the exhaust manifold. The exhaust pipe can then be replaced on the new exhaust manifold.

The shift sensor may be found either on the exhaust manifold, where the exhaust pipe enters the engine block, or it is attached directly in the header pipe beneath the exhaust manifold.
