Depending upon how novice you are! Most likely! This really isn't a hard job its just really time consuming, and a lot of parts to worry about!
This is a difficult job with very tight places, mainly on the manifold to head bolts(10). Everything on the top of the manifold has to be removed( fuel rails, injectors, egr system and pipe, all vacuum hoses and disconnect wires, preferably with labels). Then remove Pcv and breather, first you will have to dimount PS pump and move slightly out of the way to remove breather. Remove the oil filter and starter, you will have to change oil anyway. Manifold to head bolts remove 6 bolts from top ( ratchet, swivel, short sockets and most likely a ratcheting wrench may be necessary). From the bottom the other four bolts are to be removed( difficult/ take your time and use jack stands). After these bolts are removed, you will now remove the five bolts holding manifold to manifold(easy). Remove manifold and clean surfaces and use new gaskets( egr, fuel inj. o-rings, and any other part that was removed using a gasket). Make sure every thing is done correctly and always tighten bolts to specification and tightening sequence laid out by your local dealer.
Your intake manifold gasket needs to be replaced.
The only way to get to the intake manifold gasket is to take the head off. I'm working on it right now and so far that is all i can say
Get a very good mechanic and dont plan on getting your car back the same day. Or buy a new gasket and remove the intake and diy.
you go to a Machanic.
you need to make sure your plugs and wires are ok, if it is still rough 9 out of 10 chances it is your intake manifold gasket.
The head gasket itself is relatively cheap..around $20 at most but the labor involved with changing it would probably be at least $400 if done in a shop.
no, use rtv sealant
The removal of a head gasket from a 2005 Nissan Altima is a time consuming process and should be done by qualified and experienced mechanics. It will involve removing the valve covers, heads, and other accessories. In addition to a set of head gaskets, gaskets for the intake manifold and valve covers will be needed. A coolant flush and refill will also be required to complete this job.
If it was removed then YES.
any manifold? well it is basicly to seal 2 mateing surfaces preventing liquid and or air from leaking from there respective channels within the manifold
The manifold gasket is the same as the plenum gasket. The manifold gasket is a barrier between the manifold and the engine block.
About an 8 hour job.
my car overheated and now i have excessive water coming out the tailpipe of my 97 Nissan altima . is the head gasket blown ?
The 1997 Nissan Altima 2.4L is equipped with the RE4F04A 4-speed automatic transmission. This transmission fluid pan and gasket assembly has 21-bolt holes.
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
Leak or blown gasket.
Extremely difficult as this is a major repair. Best left to a professional.
nissan primera overheating after changing the water pump and radiator what could be the cause of this
Intake & exhaust manifold must be removed. Then the head must be removed. head inspected for cracks or warping, and new head gasket installed. Not a repair for a novice.
Remove the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold. Remove the manifold bolts. Remove the manifold. Remove the manifold gasket and clean the surface. Reverse the process to install the new manifold gasket.
It probably needs a new valve cover gasket.
You shouldn't need to take off the intake manifold at all so, to answer your question, no. However, if it the exhaust manifold you mean, the answer is still no. It should be a multi-layered metal gasket and the only reason to replace any gasket is because it is damaged.
Remove the retaining bolts from your 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse manifold. The manifold will come off. Remove the manifold gasket. Clean the surface and put the new manifold gasket on.
Remove the manifold and change the gasket. And voila!!!
