Need Procedure for LH Exhaust Manifold

Hi to ALL

I smelled a little burning oil and I noticed a slight crack on the underside of the Left Hand Exhaust Manifold(The one that you see by the spark plugs.

Does anyone have the procedure for taking out this manifold and replacing it.

I found it on RockAuto and it is pretty cheap but I don't know if it is just as easy as unbolting it and putting a new one in. I saw something on the internet about disconnecting the power steering pressure hose from the power steering pump.

It seems pretty complicated but I am not sure. Any feedback appreciated.
Cordially,
Schleprock

Re: Need Procedure for LH Exhaust Manifold

Awesome resource Bert. TOTALLY forgot about that one. Thanks!

OP:
The link to the repair procedure will get you going in the right direction if your engine/manifold is the same.

IF you must remove the power steering pressure line at the pump, hold the larger nut to loosen the smaller one. There is a white nylon o-ring that fits over the line nut that will need to be replaced if the line is removed. It should not be very expensive at all but do make sure it is replaced. A right angle pick will make removing and installing the o-ring a breeze. When tightening the smaller, or line, nut on the pressure line, choke up on your wrench. It should be snug, not as tight as you can get it.

Have fun!
