How to remove intake manifold and valve cover?

Plan on getting these parts powder coated this month but the shop requires you to remove the parts and bring them in, they "just do the powder coating". How hard is it to remove these parts? A how to would be great if anyone can manage. Thanks.

You unplug the sensors and unbolt everything else.

I've got a manual it's the one that comes with the car. Is it as simple as unplug and unbolt? I really doubt it. If anyone cares to be more specific I'd appreciate it.

He means a repair manual such as Haynes, and it really is that simple, just don't let anything get into the engine intake which will be exposed.

Yes just unbolt everything connected to it. It should take no more than 30 minutes to get the valve cover and mani off. Make sure you get a new valve cover gasket and intake manifold gasket when you put it all back together.

Took of intake manifold to change spark plugs

HOW TO: Replace plugs and wires 2.0








When it comes time to put it back together are you going to ask for help searching too?

Do i need to unplug the battery, worry about fluids leaking all over the place etc? The valve cover seems simpler but i still need a little more information about what needs to be disconnected or unbolted from said parts.

This platform has been around 11 years. Whatever it is you ever might want to do -- odds are it's been done many times. Use the search feature and browse the garage threads. This won't take 30 min unless you've done it before and already have exactly the tools you need and know exactly which one to use on each bolt (a standard ratchet won't do the trick here). Plan on spending some time and some money getting tools. The upside -- you can keep the tools and and it will still cost less than labor at a shop, which is just money gone forever.

I wrote a pretty expansive description to fill in the gaps left by other how-to's and the shop manuals. It is here:
V6 tune up additional details

Plan on making a few trips to the hardware store unless you already have a big collection of different sized ratchets, extensions, elbows, etc.

Also learn to read the stickied forum rules at the top of every sub-forum. This thread will probably be closed soon because it doesn't follow the rules. Getting attitude with established members because they're already annoyed from thousands of prior newbs isn't a good way to get established here. The rules are at the top of every forum for a reason.

It's really not complex dude. Some sensors. Some bolts. That's all it really is. If you honestly can't comprehend it, take it to someone who does so your don't ruin your car.

The reason I asked is because I have been trying to decide whether the trouble of taking the time to take pictures and doing the extensive writing for a comprehensive How-To on the take down and reassembly of the upper engine systems for the 6G72 would be of value. I have done it a number of times and plan to do it again soon.

This is my 00GT fed spec. and because I DO run the EGR the plenum and intake do need occasional cleaning.


Thanks for helping me decide.

Shep03GS : who are you?
I just did this a couple weeks ago on a 2.4L. Removed the intake, not powder coat it. I have a couple suggestions.

1. Go to the 3G General discussion, and you'll find the sticky for a service manual. Intake removal is in Chapter 11D.

2. Read the procedure, and become familliar with it.

3. Get the car up on jack stands. Easier on the back.

4. Get some freezer bags and a Sharpie. Bag and tag everything you take off.

5. Use a digital camera and take lots of pictures. Especially pics just before you disconnect or remove something.

6. If you remove the thermostat, put it in a cup of antifreeze. Keeps it from drying out. Don't ask how I know this.

7. Follow the service manual step by step.

8. 10, 12, and 14mm Flex Sockets come in handy, as well as various extensions and a short handle rachet.

Good luck.
