you should have marked the distriputer and the actual intake before removal, if not you will need to go at it the old fashion way like i did , get the number 1 piston to tdc on the combustion stroke and point the distriputar with the number one tower facing the number one piston and leave lose enough to turn by hand and time by ear, you want to get it close , if you got a triming light that will help(use a white out pen out pen to mark your timinging mark by the book ,should be zero or maybe 7 btdc and dissconnect the computer so it wont try to compennsate immediatly, its a brown wire with black strip on the fire wall either driver or passerger side)if not what you can do is after you do all the previous mentioned stuff, get to about 2000rpm till you hear the valves start to chatter then back it off about a 1/16-`1/8 a retard turn and lock it down .if stil to hig of ide and the valves arent chattering turn town the ide which should be around 650-675rpm it might take a few times but dont worry the 350 are tuff
Usually when you leak oil that's an indication that the intake manifold gaskets need to be replaced or your intake manifold is shot.
Yes, the distributor has to come out to remove the intake manifold in order to remove the heads.
Theoretically, under normal operating conditions, and proper maintenence, intake manifold gaskets should last for the entire life of the vehicle. To my knowledge, there is no prescribed routine replacement interval for intake manifold gaskets. Of course anytime a head(s) is removed, then new gaskets should be used in reassembly.
i had this problem with the same car same year and model changed plugs, wires, distributor cap and distributor, worked for a week and then happened again, the old and new distributor had a faulty Ignition Control Module. Its a chip that plugs into the distributor itself, actually cheaper to buy a new distributor or go to a junk yard(no guarantee it works) intake and exhaust manifold gaskets, remove manifolds scrape old gaskets off cleanly and install new ones
You will feel a miss at idle and the idle speed may be erratic. Try retorquing the intake manifold bolts, working from the center out in the recommended tightening sequence. If that fails, the intake manifold will have to be removed and the intake gaskets replaced
check for bad vaacum line or manifold leak!! I replaced gaskets on my 2000 v6 and it runs fine.also check the plug wires are correct!!
It is the Intake Manifold Gaskets FYIilikebananas
head gaskets blow and intake manifold gaskets break

what is your question
First you have to determine the cause of the leak then decide how to go about repairing it. It may only need new gaskets or it may need to have the manifold machined or replaced.
Intake and exhaust manifold gaskets are also replaced along with the head gasket. Head is inspected and if cracked it is replaced. Head bolts should also be replaced with new ones.
The process is time consuming... The intake manifold has to be taken off and the gaskets replaced due to the spark plugs being under the manifold. It would be best to take it to your dealer.
Yes they do at the intake manifold gaskets.
manifold or downpipe gaskets may be leaking gases or worse, cracked manifold
It could be either one. However, it is well known that these years of V6 engines had weak intake manifold gaskets from the factory. You might just luck out and it'll be the intake gaskets. You could also do a compression and leak down test to check the head gaskets before tearing it that far down to only find out they were fine.
On the very top of the engine there is a intake manifold and the intake gaskets go between the intake and cylinder heads.
If you are talking about the EXHAUST manifold then most of the time it's the valve cover gasket that is leaking oil. REPLACE VALVE COVER GASKETS. If you are talking about the intake manifold then it has 2 rubber gaskets in the front and rear of it that leak oil real bad. If oil is on the left are right top sides of the intake manifold were the valve covers are then it will be the valve cover gaskets that are leaking oil.
Usually the O-ring gasket for the Distributor leaks on these engines..look at the base of the distributor.. it usually trickles from there. the fix is pretty easy. it is one o-ring gasket that can be replaced by pulling the distributor.

you go to a mechanic
if you figure this out please call me i had the heads resurfaced and gaskets replaced and the same thing is happening to my f250 6.8l v10 1999 8317068926
The starter is located under the intake manifold. Remove the intake manifold and all necessary components to access it. Remember to replace all the gaskets with new gaskets .
