Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Mazda 626 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles
I have a 1998 Mazda 626 4cyl 100K mi.
I am looking for anyone with tips/tricks to removing and installing an intake manifold, I do have the repair book and have read it. The reason for this repair is to replace the leaking intake manifold gasket because it is leaking air causing P0171 code. I am also replacing the other 2 gaskets while I’m there (EGR, Throttlebody)
1) can this be done by one person (me). I’m not new to working on cars
2) do I need to really remove the coolant?
3) how do you reach the lower intake manifold bolts? Can I even get a torque wrench in there?
