How to replace exhaust donut on 99 wrangler

This is pretty straight forward, you need to locate the exhaust manifold and follow it down to where it connect to the exhaust pipe, there three bolts on the joint and you take those out. Then see if you can separate the pipe from the manifold. If you cannot separate them then you need to get under the jeep and loosen the holders for the exhaust pipe. When you can separate the joint, take the old doughnut out and put in the new one. Make sure that you get it tight and that you tighten the bolts evenly. Don't over tighten one side.

1999 plymouth breeze 2.0 motor how do I replace exhaust manifold

very straight forward ,there may be a few pipes, wire etc to move out of they way, so make sure you know where every thing goes back if you do have to remove anything , take a photo as you go along for referance , also would be worth getting a workshop manual as will give step by step guide, there are a series of nuts along the exhaust manifold that bolt onto the head , these will be very tight so a long knuckle bar will be required to loosen them off , don't remove one at a time , undo them a little at a time , there will be a clamp that connects the manifold to the exhaust pipe , these are bolted together as well , once the nuts are remove the manifold can be removed , it may require a bit of a tap with a hammer with a piece of wood placed on the manifold , don't hit the manifold directly , clean of the gasket on the head and manifold , refit is just the reverse with a new gasket , there is uasually a cone shaped ring that seals the manifold to the exhaust pipe make sure this is central when refitting or will get a leak good luck

I need to replace the exhaust manifold on my 2001 Accent 1.6L. I have the part, but need a manual or directions. The original manifold is cracked badly (more like split); it was repaired temporarily with...

Most any auto parts store will have a repair manual that will lead you step by step through the process. However, if you have any mechanical knowledge, and own a set of wrenches and sockets, you can perform this job rather easily and in a few hours. Step one: use a penetrating oil (I recommend PB Blaster but WD-40 will suffice) on the nuts/studs that connect the manifold to the exhaust pipe, allow time for it to do it's magic, then remove said nuts/bolts, making sure not to lose/damage the gasket (if equipped). Step two: disconnect the O2 sensor (if equipped/mounted to manifold) and any EGR pipes that may be attached to it. Step three: remove the mounting bolts, lift out the old manifold. Step four: clean the area where the manifold bolts to the head, install a new gasket, and reverse the process. I hope this has helped, and good luck.

96 Dodge Neon O2 sensor Ckt No Activity bank 1 sensor 1----how do I replace the sensor, will that correct a problem with the check engine light?

That would correct the problem, the O2 sensor is on the exhaust manifold or on the exhaust manifold down pipe. If you go to Auto Zone, they will have the O2 sensor you need and also the loaner tool you may need to remove the O2 sensor. Auto Zone also can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the O2 sensor in about 30 min. Once you located the O2 sensor, disconnect the wire harness and use the O2 sensor socket to remove the sensor from the exhaust. It's like removing a spark plug, to install the new O2 sensor is just to follow the same procedure in revers to the removal. Good luck.

97 chev. 4 banger (2.2) need to pull head, Chilton manual isworthless... need good, concise info or instructions.

If you have never replaced a head gasket before the best advice I can give is leave it to a professional, as on modern vehicles there are a number of electrical, emissions, and vacuum connections that can and will cause very serious problems if not disconnected or reconnected properly.

If you feel the need to replace it yourself it's essentially10 steps.


remove the upper fan shroud
remove the serpentine belt, fan and pulley
loosen and remove the alternator
remove the air cleaner assembly up to the throttle body
remove the upper radiator hose, thermostat, and housing loosen and remove the heater hose
remove all electrical connections from the upper intake, then remove the fuel lines from the lower intake. Good luck with the rear fuel connection as it is snug against the block and the firewall
loosen and remove the heater hose bracket on the intake manifold
remove the intake manifold
remove the remaining bolts from the accessory bracket on the front of the engine and set the A/C compressor and PS pump aside (DO NOT DISCONNECT HOSES)
remove the oil dipstick/filler tube bracket and pull it out
disconnect exhaust manifold from exhaust down pipe
remove exhaust manifold nuts, then remove exhaust manifold
compress and remove rocker arms and push rods (KEEP IN ORDER)
remove head bolts
Remove head without prying between head and block
Send head out for machining or replace with new head

Installation in reverse of removal

Hope this helps

Are you sure its the exhaust manifold? I thought so on mine, but turned out to be the crossover pipe. If so, the crossover is only available from dealer and is ~$550. When removing old pipe, bolts are very difficult to get to, and some are only removable from one side (they are studs). I found the site below has excellent instructions with diagrams. Important! Before installing, ensure the bolts fit through the holes in the new part (mine did not).
