Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab
2000 ford f150 4.6 v8 138,000 miles,has coolant in #1 cylnder,intake gaskets have been replaced,no excessive pressure in radiator,no coolant in oil,intake port tube super clean for that cylnder while the other 7 have carbon in them.confused whats wrong.possible cracked intake,anyone hear of this before?
Check the lower intake gasket again the new gaskets that are being use made out of plastic with rubber port seals sometimes don't seal right I still used gasket sealer with the new plastic gasket even if it has rubber seals. MY 4.2 v6 had that problem but I went ahead and replaced the head gaskets also just to cover all the bases. And my F-150 has 210,000 miles on it. Make sure you tight the bolts I know it probably calls for something like 8 ft lbs which to me is not tight enough. Double it.

battery. Set this bolt aside for later use.
Remove the engine cover to access the intake manifold and manifold
gasket. Disconnect the throttle body inlet duct from the engine.
Twist off the radiator cap to allow draining of the coolant to flow more
smoothly. Place an empty container beneath the radiator's drain plug, and
remove this plug. Allow all of the engine coolant to drain into the empty
container. Replace the drain plug once you are finished.
Tag all of the electrical wiring and hoses before removing so that
reconnection is precise to factory settings. Remove these parts, individually,
from the intake manifold.
Loosen the bolts that hold the intake manifold to the Impala's engine
block. Lift the intake manifold from the block once all bolts have been
Use the flat-head screwdriver to pry the old intake manifold gasket from
the engine block. Discard this part once you have removed it.
Clean the engine block thoroughly with the engine degreaser and linen
cloth. If necessary, use a gasket scraper to remove excess buildup and grime.
Place the old intake manifold on top of the newly-installed manifold
gasket until it aligns with all of the holes of the cylinder flanges and
Attach all of the bolts with your hand to the manifold. Once all bolts
have been positioned, use a torque wrench and apply 15 foot-pounds of pressure
to the bolts to secure the manifold into place.
Reconnect all of the necessary hoses and electrical wiring to the
intake. Pour the engine coolant back into the radiator.
Reattach the engine cover on top of the intake manifold and engine
block. Start the Impala's engine and check for any leaks around the new intake
