Not sure I understand your question. The intake manifold bolts directly to the head, so there should be zero clearance when its bolted down. Any gap will cause a vacuum leak.

Listed in the owner's manual and under the hood on a placard. Also the parts store where you buy the plugs can supply this info.

Idle is not adjustable, your idle air controls valve is hunting, stuck or you have a vaccum leak.

For the 3.0 ohv engine follow the upper hose the the housing on the intake manifold. It will be behind that housing. On the 3.0 DOHC engine. Follow the lower hose to the water outlet housing. The thermostat will be behind that housing.

1996 mercury sable speed hand and drives in strain and ****


I hace a 19196 sable-the problem is the transaxle speed sensor-this part sends all speed info to the computer ..-First symptom(speedometer stops working and then transmission shifts erratacially and power steering becomes hard and engine light comes on..The computer on this all eletronic car cannot send proper signals to the speedo-trans-power steering and other functions without knowing how fast or slow the car is going..Have the SPEED SENSOR mounted on top of the tranaxle replaced and all will be well.Part is not to expensive.labor can vary depending whether you have 3.0OHV or DOHC engine-some cars have to have exhaust dropped to get at it-Good Luck All
