This is a ugly thing that happens all the time at my shop. The best way to repair this is to drill the material out and retap the hole . you will need a 1/2 pipe tap, they have them at home depot or your local hardware store . on the pipe tap it tell you what size of drill bit to use . the material in the hole is aluminum and it drills out E-Z. I have also tried to use a small chisle to break out the broken peice out you can do it but you will learn alot of new bad words.The biggest problem is sometimes because of space restriction you have to use a angle drill and a shortend brill bit to even get in the space to drill.Well so far I hav'nt gave you an E-Z way to fix this SORRY. This one is not a very easy one . I hope this helped

Not really an easy way.
The easiest way to fix it would be to replace the manifold.
Other then that, you will need to work the old threaded piece out of the manifold, and then retap the hole (the same size). The re tapping is simply to clean up any damage you might incur during the removal of the broken piece.
Is there any of the old broken piece sticking out? If so, you can try heating the area, and see if you can twist out the broken one.

There were a number of GM vehicles that had similar problems, the the fix is always somewhat painful.

How to replace an intake manifold gasket on a 1996 gmc jimmy


Hello,

Here is a detailed summary on the procedure of how to replace the intake manifold gasket on a 1996 gmc jimmy;
REMOVING THE UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD(PLENUM)
STEP 1 Disconnect Battery (may not be absolutely necessary, but a good practice to avoid shorting a positive wire to ground).


STEP 2 Remove serpentine belt.

STEP 3 Drain the coolant.

STEP 4 Remove air cleaner ducting and disconnect wires.

STEP 5 Disconnect throttle linkage and bracket.

STEP 6 Disconnect cruise control cable.

STEP 7 Remove brake booster vacuum hose at manifold.

STEP 8 Remove PCV hose.

STEP 9 Remove ignition coil and bracket.

STEP 1O Remove purge solenoid and bracket.

STEP 11 Relieve fuel pressure at test port.

STEP 12 Remove fuel lines and bracket.

STEP 13 Remove upper intake manifold.

REMOVING THE LOWER INTAKE MANIFOLD
STEP 1 Remove the distributor and label the spark plug wires.

STEP 2 Remove heater hoses and bypass hose.

STEP 3 Remove upper radiator hose.


STEP 4 Remove EGR valve?

STEP 5 Remove sensors and bracket on right side.

STEP 6 Remove EGR tube, clamp and bolt.

STEP 7 Remove PCV valve (and replace).

STEP 8 Unbolt A/C compressor and move it aside.

STEP 9 Loosen compressor bracket and slide forward, but do not remove it.

STEP 10 Remove alternator bracket bolt (or remove alternator and set aside)

STEP 11 Unplug all vacuum lines from intake manifold.


STEP 12 Unplug all electrical connectors from manifold.

STEP 13 Take note of the intake manifold bolts and mark the location of the bolts.


STEP 14 Remove intake manifold bolts, and manifold.

STEP 15 Clean mating surfaces

THE MAIN INSTALLATION
STEP1 Set the new gaskets in place and apply silicone to flat areas on front and rear of engine block.

STEP2 Apply thread locking compound to manifold bolts.

STEP 3 Install the manifold and tighten bolts to 35 ft-lbs, in proper sequence.

STEP4 Install the distributor.

STEP5 Install the upper intake manifold.



The remaining installation procedures are basically the reverse of removal.


Have a nice day.

Hot do you take off a 98 GMC 5.7 vortec intake


Note, removing the upper intake manifold is not necessary when removing lower intake manifold, they are removed as an assembly.
Disconnect negative battery cable. Drain cooling system. Remove air cleaner assembly and inlet duct. Mark and remove distributor. Remove upper radiator hose at thermostat housing. Disconnect accelerator and cruise control cables. Remove heater hoses from intake manifold. Remove EGR pipe.
Disconnect fuel lines at rear of engine. Remove AC compressor and set aside(leave hoses connected). Remove canister purge solenoid. Disconnect theSCPI injector, ignition coil, Ignition Control Module, generator,IAC motor, TP sensor, O2 sensor, Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve and Engine Coolant Temperature sensor wiring harness connectors. Remove PCV valve and hose. Remove lower intake manifold bolts. Remove lower intake manifold.
Installation.
Always use New O-rings when reconnecting fuel lines at rear of engine. Apply a bead of RTV silicone sealer along the front and rear sealing surfaces of the block.See Fig.6. Install new gaskets and intake manifold on block while RTV is still wet to the touch. Use Threadlock 12345382 or equivalent to lower intake manifold bolts. Tighten lower intake manifold bolts in sequence to specification table. See fig. 7. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure.f52665d.gifabc2b5f.gif
