b.Pump cover to pump assembly.
c.Cover to block, bottom bolt first.
d.Radiator outlet pipe asm. to cover.
7.Exhaust manifold and new gaskets.
8.Exhaust manifold to cylinder head retaining nuts. Follow the tightening sequence and tighten to specification. See: Exhaust System Exhaust Manifold Service and Repair
9.Raise vehicle.
10.Index exhaust manifold bolts into exhaust pipe flange.
11.Exhaust pipe to exhaust manifold.
12.Turn both bolts in evenly to avoid cocking the exhaust pipe and binding the bolts. Turn bolts in until fully seated.
13.Radiator outlet pipe to transaxle and oil pan.
*If equipped with manual transaxle install the exhaust manifold brace.
14.Lower vehicle.
15.Exhaust manifold brace to manifold bolt.
16.Tighten the manifold to exhaust pipe nuts to specification. See: Exhaust System Exhaust Manifold Service and Repair
17.Upper and lower heat shields.
18.Oxygen sensor connector.
19.Fill radiator with coolant until coolant reaches heater hose coolant outlet then install hose (this assists with complete cylinder block fill) then continue fill. See: Service and Repair
