No Exhaust Manifold gasket???

Hi,
95 Wrangler 4 cyl.

THe exhaust and intake manifolds are on the same side. The Jeep dealership sold me an intake manifold gasket and said the exhaust manifold "had no gasket".

I can't BELIEVE the the exhaust manifold bolts metal-to-metal with the head; is this right?

Autozone has a dual-use gasket that covers both teh intake and exhaust, but it leaks badly robbing me of power.

ANy suggestions?

Thanks
Bob

I think my 2.5 has a dual use gasket...I can't imagine they wouldn't have an exhaust manifold gasket. Maybe the one that the dealer has is also a dual use, just listed as intake.

**edit** guess not, after rereading your post...

Nope; it covers the 4 holes of the intake only. I called the "other' Jeep parts dept this morning, and they said the same thing. This guy actually remembers questioning the metal-to-metal exhaust manifold also, but he said thats the way it is & it won't leak.

I got noting to lose as it leaked like a silve with the dual-use gasket from autozone....I don't know though; seems fishy.

It's pretty darn weird....but I had to rebuild my 97 2.5l.....and It didn't have one, and doesn't now.....I don't think I torqued the bolts right because mine does leak alittle.....it's hotter than it used to be in the engine compartment.

Well; I did it. I used the OEM intake gasket on the intake, and bolted the exhaust manifold right to the block.

Best the damn thing has run in months.

Its interesting (but not terribly shocking) that having the dual-coverage gasket from Autozone made the thing run worse than no gasket at all.

Thanks all.
