Question about 1987 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

Replacing an intake manifold gasket on 1993 ford ranger 4.0

I am replacing an intake manifold gasket and found that the replacement gasket did not extend all the way to the front and back of the engine like the original one did. This was by design it seems as the replacement gasket instructions said to use RTV and "build" as gasket with RTV from under the manifold to the engine block.

This seems strange to me to need to do this. Is this typical of replacement gaskets? It seems that this is kind of iffy!

I've replaced several of these gasets and they were made that way.
It wouldn't hurt to call a different autoparts store and ask them if theirs are made that way.

Intake Manifold gasket replacement and/or leaking= Ford


Intake Manifold gasket~

Replacing intake manifold gasket:
Replacing the intake manifold gasket, I used the tube kind, it's a make it youself for about $6 (it's blue and the consistancy of toothpaste) follow directions carefully! You can get a tube at Autozone or any car parts store. Has been working great. Just ask the cashier for the make it yourself kind of intake manifold gasket. Sorry, I don't remember the name of it, it's been that long...lol...

As for the Intake Manifold leaking coolant....It could, but shouldn't. One of the largest problems I've seen for coolant to leak out the Intake Manifold has been due to pressure in the system somewhere... Check the classic area:
Water pump- look for either water seapage and/or coolant. You'll know if it is because you will see real water either coming out of the water pump leak hole or under the thermostat. Most of the time coolant will pool where your heater hose runs in the intake manifold.

Mentioning heater hose. Check for leaks, holes, and/or cracked heater hoses. In-addition to the water pump, heater hoses...Check the transmission system, exhaust system, fuel system, radiator system, A/C system, secondary fan (located above the water pump housing), and thermostat.Also, check all electrical connections....Hummm....This is almost the entire workings of the vehicle.

NOTE: "It seems to be an infinity kinda thing... Once one thing starts to fail and is ignored, you are bound to be fixing a chain of event failures. Therefore, Do not ignore even the smallest problem or you'll be bound for life in repairs...."

The high idle is a vacuum leak from your work, as well
as the gasket issue is not resolved yet

Have to start over & check your work

Leak from 2001 Ford ranger Water Intake Manifold - There is an aluminum part coming out of the manifold on top of the engine that is leaking. It is not on the rubber hose but on the metal part that...


The piece you are describing sounds like the thermostat housing. These housings are normally bolted to the manifold, so you can simply unbolt it. If it is cracked, you will need to replace it. If it is not, you can replace the gasket underneath it and reinstall it.
