INTAKE MANIFOLD REMOVAL
INSTALLATION IMPORTANT: Make sure cylinder head and air intake manifold gasket sealing surfaces is clean. Refer to "SOHC (L24) Cylinder Head" section for inspection requirements. Use Saturn P/N 21485276 Loctite 290(R) (or equivalent) to seal a PCV valve inlet tube into the manifold if replaced.
NOTE: Replace plastic fuel retainer whenever the fuel supply is disconnect at the fuel rail. Install the new retainer into the female cavity of the connection. Care must be taken to assure that the locking tab is centered in the window of the female cavity. Firmly press the female connection onto the male end until a click is heard, then pull back to confirm engagement. Pinched, kinked, or damaged fuel lines must be replaced.
IS THIS POSSIBLE WITHOUT LIFTING THE VEHICLE?
