Question about 1997 GMC Sierra
I will try to describe the intake mainfold gasket replacement.
Empty coolant fluid.
Disconnect the battery, then disconnect all wires to air intake, remove air intake, and remove the throttle body.
Label all wiring and hoses putting the same label on their connectors, so that you will know what and where when mounting back parts.
Undo the power steering pump bolt and move the pump on one side, do not disconnect the pump.
Disconnect the TPS connection.
Unscrew the manifold and push it on one side, remove the dowel pins located under the manifold and secured to the head to free the mainfold.
Clean the surface of the gasket material and debris and start installing the new Intake Manifold
Put the new manifold gasket on the head, and install the manifold following operations in reverse order.
Do not forget to refill coolant.
The replacement is quite a simple repair, if you want instructions with picture, then ordering a Chilton manual may be an idea.
