'89 2.5L Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement
Found out my intake manifold gasket is leaking and causing my engine to run like a turd. I'd like to save about $400 and do the job myself. I've read quite a few topics and posts on doing the job, and most folks say it's no big deal. However, most posts and writeups are for either the the 2.5L MPI or the 4.0. I've got the 2.5L TBI, so there are some differences such as the coolant lines that run through the intake manifold. My main concern is getting everything taken apart from the manifold...vacuum lines, fuel lines, wiring, etc...and put back together properly. Of course, those exhaust manifold bolts don't look like they are going to come off without a struggle either. Has anyone done the replacement on the 2.5L TBI? How much of a pain in the arse is it versus the MPI or the 4.0? Any insight or tips would be appreciated!
