View Full Version : Uninstall/Installing intake manifold??

04-05-2010, 04:48 PM
Hi I own a KA24E 89 240sx, I have a leak coming from my intake manifold gasket and I've been searching everywhere on how to get past the hosing. Take out the intake manifold and replace the gasket, I have the gasket sitting right next to me. Is there site I can look at with this info? I've looked all over zilvia and still can't find anything.

Intake manifold to head gasket or the gasket that goes between upper and lower section of intake? Please be more specific.

god.. just use your eyes man, look where all the bolts are and find ways to reach them, don't try ripping the manifold off either once you get them out, use a mallet or something to break the seal and check for electrical connectors.

I've realized the majority of this forum is prob highschool kids who like to post answers to topics, even though they have no idea what the fuck they are even talking about.

Well the easiest way to do it imo is to drain coolant, remove bolts from the split in the manifold then remove all bolts from manifold to head.. then take the two nuts off the studs on the outermost ends of the mani to head mounting points then remove the studs by taking the two nuts and tightening them against each other on the stud, pull stud by using this like a bolt then the carefully slide upper section of manifold back enough to replace gaskets.. reverse to reassemble. correct me if im wrong mr skyview because all you did was be a dick..that took less than two minutes to type so you are fail. Some people need a little help every now and again. Draxxus.. if you need to ask questions you should get a fsm to help out, handy to have around.
