Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
Hi, I am trying to reinstall my upper intake manifold, but it keeps cracking. I've replaced it 3 times already with manifolds that I've been able to find at LKQ (junk yard). It always cracks in the same place. I am going by the Haynes torque specs at 18 ft/lbs.
Could the lower intake manifold be warped? Maybe the Harbor Frieght torque wrench is to blame?
