Ford 4.6L V8 Intake Manifold Replacement
Complete instructions for intake manifold swap on 4.6l Ford V8 engine. It
is easy! I got new Dorman 615-175 to replace stock OEM part. Each step was
relatively easy but there were a lot of steps. Took me 6 hours total for
removal and repair. The Dorman part came with new thermostat and O-ring.
Also had new alternator bracket as old one could not be used. This part is
improved over original OE as has O-rings for all ports so a gasket is not
needed. No more leaking coolant. Fits 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006,
2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 Crown Victoria and other Ford, Lincoln, Mercury
V8 motors such as Mustang,
Explorer, Expedition, Grand Marquis, Town Car. The 5.4l truck and
Expedition should be similar.
Lincoln Town Car Coolant Leak Repair - 4.6 SOHC Composite Intake Manifold
Our 2002 Lincoln Town Car started to overheat on me the other day and I
found out I had a pretty substantial coolant leak. After checking all the
normal stuff, like the radiator, hoses, etc... I thought it might be the
composite intake manifold. The real problem ended up being the tube from
the water pump that goes under the intake to the back of the engine. It
had rusted over time and developed a couple of pin holes. I did manage to
get it all fixed up for now. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for
GM 3.8 Intake Manifold replacement. Removal the fast way WITH NOTES
this is the "Flat Rate " way to do a 3.8 liter upper and lower intake
manifold set. as you see it is not necessary to take off he serp belt,
alternator or tensioner assembly to remove the lower manifold. I recomend
having someone help when it is time to reinstall the manifold because it
can be tricky to lien up the coolant elbow and not mess up the lower
gaskets when reinstalling. Note that it is recomended to disconnect the
negative battery cable when doing any major repairs. This video is just to
show some guys that said that a lower manifold cant be pulled in way less
than 20 minutes, I know that I went over that , but I had some stuborn
injectors and Im a little out of practice. If you are going to do this
yourself and you are not a professional I recomend that you follow the
procedure in a service manual
How to clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac)
*** PLEASE READ ***
In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and
replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l
ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle.
* * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * *
The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle
A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm
performance and cause rough engine operation.
When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to
properly seal the connection to the intake.
GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be
cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket
and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak.
The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned
because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for
a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has
some miles on it.

Fix It Right! - Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement (S1E4)
Demonstrated on a 2004 Buick Century 3.1L V6 FWD.
In this video, we demonstrate how to perform an intake manifold gasket
replacement on a front-wheel-drive 3.1L V6 engine, in this case in a 2004
Buick Century. This is a common point of failure on General Motors' 3.1L,
3.4L, and 3.8L V6 engines, which are used in a large number of passenger
cars across most of GM's model lines.

About the "Fix It Right!" video series:
"Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give
do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and
maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real
vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and
shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be
more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there
are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and
most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment.
We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex
or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment,
and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of
hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly,
and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

How To Find A Vacuum Leak - EricTheCarGuy
Vacuum leaks are one of the biggest causes of engine performance problems.
This video is pretty straight forward in it's approach to finding a vacuum
leak. On thing I might mention is that not all vacuum leaks are at the
engine. Some HVAC systems run on engine vacuum and can cause a leak under
the dash in some cases. I've even seen vacuum operated door locks. Just be
sure to be careful spraying flammable stuff on a hot engine, you don't want
to take one problem and make it a whole lot worse. You can also use a spray
bottle with water to do this same test. It may not be as effective, but you
don't have to worry about spraying a flammable substance on a hot engine.

this article I wrote.

Intake Manifold - Explained
What is an intake manifold? How do intake manifolds work? What is a
performance intake manifold? This video features a Skunk2 Pro series intake
manifold courtesy of Redline360.com. Intake manifolds are the connection
between the throttle body and the cylinder head. They also serve as a hub
for connections like the IAT sensor, the EVAP purge valve, the fuel rail,
the breather hose, and a vacuum connection for power brakes.

Ford 4.2L V6 Hydrolock and IMRC fix [1080 HD]
New intake manifold gaskets. Normally this runs about $900 due to the
amount of time involved if you can find a trustworthy mechanic. It takes a
LOT of cleaning. The parts are less than $50. Cleaning supplies are maybe
$100 if you're meticulous like me. You can do this job yourself in the
equivalent of an hour--for every minute of this video. It's time consuming
but there's nothing difficult about it. Cleaning the intake manifold while
it's removed from the engine is not shown, but the rest of everything else
is covered very well. Enjoy.
