Steps on the driver side gasket removal.




1. Remove the intake tube, and then use your 14mm socket to unbolt the rest of the intake from the throttle body. There will be two bolts 1 on top and the other below. (Fig 1) IPB Image

2. Once you have removed the bolts, unhook the vacuum line that is connected to the intake inlet and then remove the inlet. (fig 2)

3. In order to remove part number 1 in the pic you must first remove the oil inlet number 2. The oil inlet has two 12mm bolts and the sensor has three 10mm bolt (fig 3) IPB Image

4. When both the sensor and oil inlet has been removed , the engine should now look like (fig 4)

5. Next step will be to release the throttle cable (fig 5), simply push on the throttle and lift the cable out.

10. Now from here on its pretty much common sense, unhook all vacuum and coolant hoses, remove the spark plug wires and unbolt the injector wires from the valve cover 11. You should now be looking at something like this (fig 10).

12. Now remove the valve cover bolts (fig 12).

13. The is a mount #7 in pic that is used to hoist the engine out of the car , I had to use a pry bar to bend the hoist back in order to get one of the valve cover bolts off (fig 12). IPB Image

14. My valve cover was baked on to the car so I had to use a flat head screw driver to pry it up, when you have the valve loose then fit it up and your engine should look like this. (fig 13) IPB Image
