What is the 3.8 off of? My 3.8 in my town & country has 4 bolts spaced evenly in the back and in the front. Very easy to take off or put on...
Hi, am currently doing this job. I am using chiltions full size truck manual, 1988-98. Manual # 28624. This is a pretty good book. Intake manifold section 3-22. What it doesn't tell you is: you must push the csfi through the upper intake manifold. I would be happy to help you in more detail: Call my… cell phone anytime. 760-792-2449. It's much easier that way. Simple when ya understand the trick! Ciao! Scott. ( Full Answer )
I've done several at my shop--these are not easy at all--the 5.5 hours alldata says it pays to replace the intake mani gasket is crazy--it takes all of 10 hours--most likely easier just to pull the cylinder head

Intake manifold removal . \nFirst remove serpentine belt, loosen power steering mount bolts and remove, leave lines hooked up. Remove hose clamp holding intake hose to intake manifold from air filter. Remove fuel line and any vaccum hoses that wont remain with the manifold when it is taken off. R…emove the fuel rail gently from the injectors. Remove all the nuts from the intake manifold, there is one nut down low on the passenger side of the manifold that is hard to get at and even see, I had to use a mirror so I could see to get my tools in place.\nGood luck ( Full Answer )
Does the intake manifold have to be removed in order to replace the pressure regulator in a 1998 GMC jimmy?
Answer . Yes... If your trying to fix a starting problem you might want to wait on replacing it... I replaced mine and it didn't change a thing. Only attempt the installation if you have a good memory because there are alot of bolts that need to be taken off... hardest part of the job is removin…g the intake cover, Fuel hose placement along with electrical lines running overtop make this very difficult. hope that helps.. - Christian ctjames88.com ( Full Answer )
intake manifold gasket . \nI just got putting a new intake gasket on my 98 5.7 i'm sure it cant be that much different.\ni would start by unplug all of your wires and unclip them from the wire harness. then start taking things off. alternator, air intake, throttle cables, move the ac compresso…r out of the way. take out the distributor, ( can cause problems when putting it back in, be sure to label everything right or your timing will be way off and give a bad headache) then unbolt your intake should be 4 bolts on each side, remove one of the valve covers and pull out the intake. get gaskets and sealer, put it all back together ( Full Answer )
on top of the engine, remove the plastic covering that houses the spark plug wires.
In the same place as it is on every other V6 engine built in the world!!! On top of the engine, between the heads, under the throttle body.
Answer . No. The cylinder head on the Type R and GSR are different. The bolt and coolant holes will not match up. However, the Type R's intake manifold will fit a 99-00 Civic SI because their cylinder heads are similar.
you have to take it to a shop that can professionally drain the refrigerant from the compressor. It is very hazardous stuff and CAN NOT be drained into the air, it has to be captured. Then you just have to unbolt the compressor. You may have to remove the radiator first.
unless you have pretty good experience working on Chevy smallblocks you might consider getting a professional for this. However start by removing the spark plug wires-they will have to be numbered so they can be reinstalled like they come off.Then undo all linkages,any wiring and by all means try to… label everything.(very important) fuel lines, hoses,etc.Once you've done this now it really gets tricky,take t the rotor is pointing towards the driver side very front point of the motor or no.1 piston.Take the hold down loose from the intake and pull the distributor straight up.You may have to wiggle it a bit. Once you've done this undo the intake bolts ,with a little tapping with a wooden block or equal to(not a Hammer or anything metal)and a little prying with a large screwdriver or equal it should come right off.Assembly will be right reverse.

Use a chiltons manual first to study the designs and specifications. safety:1.drain all coolant. the plug is at the base of the radiator and is a plastic plug that requires a Phillips head. take care not to lose it. 2.relieve the fuel pressure by starting the engine and then pulling out the fuel fus…e located in the cab. for exact location, use the diagram on the cover plate. 3.disconnect the battery and cover the terminal and the wire leading to it to prevent them from touching or bridging the space between them. First, you must free all of the wires and cables that will be over the intake area. Then remove the spark plug cap. and the plug wirse from their plugs. keep plu#6 and its wire connected to each other, but separate the wire from the cap and lay it aside. Then start loosening hoses that are connected to the back of the plenum. they are hard to get at and I cut them, and replaced them with new ones because it was so much easier that way instead of loosening them. loosen all bolts connecting the plenum to the intake. do this in the reverse order of tightening sequence. a breaker bar will be most helpful. and feel for a sensor in the back of the plenum on its underside. also disconnect that. it will hinder movement. set the plenum to the right with most of the hoses and such still attached. then disconnect the bolt securing the intake to the frame. it is hidden under it and you have to feel for it. it takes an 8mm socket. its not too hard to get undone. but keep a magnet on hand. disconnect the coolant hose from the front side and then disconnect the fitting, requiring the removal of two bolts in the back of the manifold. disconnect the fuel line leading to the fuel bar. and try to leave the fuel bar attached to the manifold. but do disconnect the wires leading to all of the injectors. then loosen all of the manifold bolts in reverse order of tightening sequence. if the intake manifold is stuck to the heads, use a piece of wood as a buffer between your mallet and the soft aluminum. when putting it all back together, get new gaskets for everything. this is a great time to also replace your thermostat. put it in the right direction. take a picture of the thermostat in its housing when you first see it so you will be sure what direction it faces. when putting the bolts back in, use a torque bar for the right specs and always hand tighten all bolts going into any metal threads before you take a tool to them. it is tedious, but will save you from buying a new intake manifold or plenum. reinstall all as before seen and make it pretty. reconnect the fuse, and put the coolant back in. enjoy.

You have to remove the alternator, throttlebody (use plenty of wd40 and a pipe wrench getting the egr tube disconnected from the egr valve, remove the radiator hose. Use a U joint wrench to get the # 7 bolt out which is located on the drivers side under the wiper module. That's pretty much how I got… mine off and I know its a pain in the butt .

The intake manifold on a 1990 Acura Integra connects to the head ofthe engine. Loosen all of the nuts from the manifold to the head,disconnect the throttle body, vacuum lines, fuel injectors andcoolant lines then pull the manifold from the head.
To remove the intake manifold on the eclipse it is important tofirstly remove the air intake, breather hose and the sensor at thetop of the manifold. The battery should also be removed to removethe intake manifold on an eclipse.
take all the wiring and hoses loose from the top of the engine, and you might have to remove the valve covers. then just loosen the intake manifold bolts
this is a common problem with the Vortec engine and the manifold gaskets that GM uses. In fact, if you do a search on GM manifold gasket you'll see all the chatter about a class action law suite related to this problem. Bottom line is that you'll need to replace the manifold gasket - preferably with… an after market replacement (like Fel Pro) so you don't have to do it again! ( Full Answer )
The exhaust intake manifold is held in place with 10 retainingbolts. Remove the retaining bolts and the intake manifold will comeoff.
\n. \n. \nVery carefully! - with mechanics tools, and you better remember how to put it back together again or take pictures or draw pictures or paint the bolts different colors and their bolt holes the same color. Your local library may have a service manual with more detailed help.
The bolt tightening sequence for all Chevy intake manifolds is the same, first you coat the bolts with some non-hardening sealer, align your gasket on the head and use some RTV silicone to seal the front and the rear of the manifold, finger tighten all of your bolts, then using a torque wrench start…ing from the center working your way to the front and back in a circular motion torque the bolts, the torque specs for the bolts is 30 ft-lbs but first torque to 20 ft-lbs and then 30 ft-lbs in the same pattern you used the first time you tightened them, this is the proper procedure ( Full Answer )
To remove the intake manifold on a 2004 Mitsubishi endeavor, youshould take it to a mechanic. An authorized dealer will also fix itfor you.
Remove the intake manifold retaining bolts from your 1993Mercedes-Benz manifold. Remove the old manifold gasket. Clean thesurface and put the new gasket on.
Usually not if the bolts are still in good shape (not rusted too badly or the threads aren't stripped.) I would advise getting some bolt sealant and rub a bit of it on your bolts before you reinstall your manifold. Hope this helps!
with some patience and small hands you can do it. Removal is always harder then installation as you get familiar with the procedure. If you need help i can do a step by step, i just finished fabricating a new hose for a pcv and reinstalling it. You can not get the molded hose from an auto parts stor…e, i used 2 90 degree elbows and 3 pieces of hose, this makes the hose more durable with less span between connections and less chance of another crack in it. Remember, 1: unplug negative batter cable. 2: remove throttle body for easier removal of intake manifold, 2 water hoses on throttle body, one sensor plug , 4 bolts. And tube from filter box 2 Phillips screws loosened. vacuum hose on that tube from filter box also. And a sensor to unplug on that tube (maf sensor). 3: disconnect 2 sensors on intake manifold on the top front, disconnect 2 sensors plugs on bottom right side of manifold, there are 2 hoses above the two bottom sensors you need to unplug, tricky part is removing the wire harness from the manifold, very tight space there are two connected to the front of manifold, and 3 on the left side. 4: remove 2 bolts holding dipstick tube to manifold. 5: now everything should be out of the way or movable to get the manifold out. There are 8 bolts holding it on, 4 on the top, one you have to get to under the car, one by the power steering pump(left side lower), one through a hole in the middle of the manifold (the hardest one i think) and one below the area where the throttle body was unbolted. I also removed the retainers on the front of the car holding the radiator and fans in place to be able to move them back to get it out, you may need someone to push the radiator back as you maneuver the manifold out, there is a vacuum hose on the backside of the manifold that goes to the pcv valve, it is very hard to get back on also when u reinstall. Tight space to put it back on. I tilted the right side up to get it clear that pipe going into it then lifted at an angle to get the tabs past the fuel rail and it was out, took me about 3 hours to remove, clean it all up and 1 1/2 hours to reinstall, I'm a little slow but i got it done. . When the manifold is out i used 5 old rags and stuffed them into the holes so a catastrophic accident don't happen. Make sure the areas are clean and no sand or dirt may be there. . I believe that is all of it, if you get stuck you can email me and i will try to get back to you fast if possible. ( Full Answer )
Driver,. Buy the repair manual for the vehicle. Haynes makes excellent manuals for most vehicles. Or, barring actual purchase go to your local library and look up the information, make a copy or drawing to take with you to torque the fasteners.

if its the air intake this is what u do, first remove the clamp that's attached to the throttle body. Then, remove the mass air flow cable, and in the air filter box it has 3 bolts you remove.
Torque is 30 Lbs at he intake bolts. . torque bolt order is as follows: . the numbers below also represent the bolt position on the intake. . 1 and 2 being the bolts in the center of the intake. . 6---8 . 5---7 . 1---2 . 4---3 . 11---9 . 12---10 . Hope that helps
The intake manifold is made up of 2 parts, not surprisingly the Upper Intake Manifold (UIM) and Lower Intake Manifold (LIM). The UIM is quite easy to access, with only a couple of components to disconnect in order to remove it. This is also where the bulk of the 'common' work takes place - cleaning… egr ports, most of the induction system cleaning, and a very critical repair for the Windstar: failed isolator bolts. The "Related Questions" below cover the UIM in great detail - with links to in-depth procedures on removal, cleaning & maintenance. Not a comprehensive response, but enough to get the conversation started on Windstar 3.8 intake manifolds... The "Related Question" below has lots of information and links to detailed procedures on intake manifold repairs. ( Full Answer )
So far I am at the four bolts on the front and have removed the other noticable components, but theres somthing not visable still holding it on. I will have a full detail when finished at spunrod.com
If you plan to remove the lower intake manifold, you probably have to remove pwr steering pump indeed. Otherwise it makes a difficult removal/installation.

I did just that today on my son's 2000 Saturn SL1. It had a slight miss at idle speeds. After re-torqe the miss seems to be gone. I think he had a slight vacuum leak. Understand, I am no master mechanic. To have a new intake gasket installed by a mechanic would have run around $500. I figured that I… had nothing to loose by trying. It seems to have helped and maybe solved the problem. I'm also going to run some fuel cleaner through the system. I'm sure that some dirt seeped past the leak. Make sure you don't tighten the nut so tight that it brakes. Sincerely, email@example.com Please feel free to contact me by e-mail if this helps! ( Full Answer )
First step is 44in-Lbs . Second step is 89 in-Lbs. there is also a bolt tightening sequence you must follow for proper gasket sealing usually start from center one side then opposite side center and works from niddle out be get the chart it comes with gasket set

This truly depends on the engine type. Some engines have very flat intake manifolds and a bolt can simply sit. However to err on the side of caution you should assume that this "small" bit could go into a valve. This would mean a bent valve or at the very worst it would travel all the way to the pis…ton resulting in certain bore damage. Try a magnetic probe or , if you must, remove the manifold.

Lift the intake manifold from the engine and discard the gasket. 14. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces. 15. Install the intake manifold and torque the intake manifold-to-engine bolts and nuts. 16. Torque the intake manifold bolts and nuts in two steps as follows: Torque all bolt-and-nut combinations to 26-43 inch lbs. (3-5 Nm). Torque all bolts 12-14 ft. lbs. (16-20 Nm). Torque all nuts to 17-20 ft. lbs. (24-27 Nm). 17. The balance of installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. 18. Using a new gasket, install the intake manifold collector and torque the intake manifold collector-to-intake manifold bolts to 12-15 ft. lbs. (16-21 Nm). 19. Reconnect the negative battery cable. 20. Refill the cooling system. 21. Start the engine and check for leaks. ( Full Answer )
aluminum intakes don't need to be tightened beyond 25 ft/lbs. start with the 4 center bolts first then tighten the rest working from the center to the ends.
No. If you have c.o.p. ( coil on plug ) just remove the coil, there's the plug.
I had the same question when I put a head gasket on my 89 LX. Thehead has to come off in order to remove the intake manifold. Thereis no other way around this.
remove the intake, (air cleaner) your going to have to lift thefuel rails, a few bolts and some snaps you pop up, and remove thepower steering resivor and pump, then you should be good to pullthe bolts up... check to see if the bolts were just loose.. donttighten to much regardless, dont want to lif…t the threads.. its alittle more than what's typeable, look on youtube ( Full Answer )
