Aftermarket & OEM Intake & Exhaust Manifold Gasket Set
If you notice a strange noise coming from the engine compartment of your car or truck you may have a leaking exhaust or intake manifold gasket. When an exhaust manifold and the intake manifold is not correctly sealed and secured to the engine then several issues may develop. If you feel air escaping between the engine and the manifold assembly then an issue exists that must be repaired as soon as possible. Unfiltered exhausts that contain large amounts of carbon dioxide are being released into the engine compartment. Intake and exhaust gasket failure will have a very negative impact on fuel consumption. Emission components are also adversely affected due to inaccurate readings. Proper replacement of faulty exhaust and intake manifold gaskets are essential.
Intake and exhaust gaskets are specifically designed to facilitate the required application and are composed of different materials to accomplish an air tight seal. Intake gaskets are installed between the intake manifold and the inlet of the cylinder head assembly. They provide a bonding surface between these components to and contain the air and fuel to accomplish the internal combustion process. Exhaust gaskets are located on the outlet side of the cylinder head and establish a seal between the head and the exhaust manifold. These components are essential for the appropriate fuel and air mixture and the exhaust functions to accomplish combustion.
Replacing intake and exhaust gaskets is not a difficult process once you have gained the appropriate access to them to accomplish this mission. You will be required to remove several obstacles and components in most circumstances. You should apply a generous amount of penetrating oil to the mounting bolts and let it soak in prior to removing them. During the installation process the mounting bolts must be torqued to the appropriate specifications.
