Got my intake manifold off.. but i have questions..
Ok i got the plenum off.. you guys were right the front bolts on the left and right were the hardest to get off.. I broke one on the passenger side.. I knew it wouldnt come off and saw it twisting so i tried to go slow then tighten then slow and tighten but it snapped... Hopefully i can get it off with some pb blaster and vice grips...
My question tho is can i do something to clean those intake valve's ? I looked inside and they are extremely grimey... Like solid black bumpy thickness of oil/black lol.. Maybe i can use like brake cleaner on them ? Or would that be a no no ?
Also I dont have a shop vac.. i got some particles of dirt inside the lifter vally i cleaned it as best as i could but i cant get it all.. I did use 2 cans of brake cleaner and compressed air to clean around the manifold and valve covers before i took it off but some dirt still got inside... Would this be ok or ?? And I also got some coolant in the oil too.. I did buy new oil tho so i guess an oil change would be good enough right ?
