    1990 4.5 intake gaskets

    Before I got sick last week with pneumonia, I started replacing the intake gaskets on a 4.5 . Here's a picture of a 170,000 mile 4.5 with the intake manifold and valve covers removed.



    Unfortunately, it's been sitting in this state since Friday and the doc says I won't be good to go until later this week. I'll take more pictures when I'm able to wrap it up.

    Rough running, stumbling, code E046 for right to left bank fuel imbalance, and oxy sensor showing lean running bank. Replaced ignition components a year ago, and installed a rebuilt set of bosch injectors over the summer, since I had some leakers. Ended up being a vacuum leak around #2 intake port.

    Damn, looks pretty clean in there for 170K. I love these kinds of pics... hopefully I never see those parts of my own 4.5!
