Hello -

By the wording on your post it looks like you were working with one of the other moderators. So I am not sure of the first part of the question and at this point not sure if the other moderator has received your message.

I can assist you just in case if you provide the 8th digit of your VIN and let me know if your model is a GS or LS.

Next, what part are you working on that you need the torque for?

It appears that you are reposting each time instead of doing the reply. I have attached a pic for you. Once you have initially posted a question, all you have to do is select the button at the bottom that I have circled in red.....then go into the are on the next pic and then select the submit button once you have answered. Then it goes back to the moderator that you are working with.

Also, thank you very much for the car info.....but I still need to know what part are you working on that you need the torque for.

Hello -

Wellcab7259 - you and I are going to get there yet. The post you sent back with the 8th digit of your VIN, the size in liter of your engine and let me know if your model is a GS or LS is lost somewhere. Sorry.

Now that you understand the way the post reply. That shouldn't be a problem. So.

I will be more than happy to provide you with the torque of the upper and lower intake manifold if you proved the above.

Hello -

Okay - thanks for the info.....I think we got it this time.

To be safe and ensure I provide you with all the info you need, I have attached info for the upper and the lower intake manifolds, removal and installation.

Also, looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you. I attached them last.

Installation

CAUTION: Aluminum components gouge easily which may cause gasket leaks. Always use care when scraping aluminum gasket surfaces. NOTE: Lightly oil all retaining bolt and stud bolt threads with Motorcraft Super Premium 5W30 Motor Oil XO-5W30-QSP or equivalent meeting Ford specification WSS-M2C153-G before installation. Clean mating gasket surfaces of lower intake manifold and cylinder head. Lay a clean cloth or shop cloth in valve tappet valley to catch any gasket material. After scraping, carefully lift cloth from valve tappet valley, preventing any particles from entering oil drain holes or cylinder head. Use a suitable solvent to remove old silicone sealant.

NOTE: Prior to applying sealer, clean sealing surfaces of cylinder block and cylinder head with Metal Surface Cleaner F4AZ-19A536-RA or equivalent meeting Ford specification WSE-M513392-A, to remove all residues that may interfere with the sealer's ability to adhere. Apply a 5-6 mm (1/4-inch) drop of Silicone Gasket and Sealant F7AZ-19554-EA or equivalent meeting Ford specifications WSK-M2G343-A4 to intersection of cylinder block and cylinder head at four corners as shown.
Position intake manifold gasket onto cylinder heads. Align intake manifold gasket locking tabs to provisions on head gaskets as shown.
