Default Thinking about the intake changeout

I think it is getting to that point. The 95 is going to need a new intake.I am hoping it will hold out til the holidays are over. It was right after bonniefest that I marked the level and now it is down about 1/4 of an inch. This has happened in just the past 2 months. Been keeping an eye on the oil and have found no coolant in it yet, so I am suspecting the EGR. With 138000 miles we limit the use until it gets done.

IIRC, you aren't too far from WIllwren, he'* good at helping people when he gets the time, why not ask him for help? Also a good chance for a mini-meet.

Due to the christmas shopping I won't have the funds until mid January. If we could plan something then it would be great. I would like to do some additional work while it is tore down, so I will be getting a few parts here and there to have on hand.

Other than the gaskets and manifold, I would like to replace the front cover gasket and the water pump. The front cover or front seal seems to be leaking oil. The water pump I want to do just because it will already be removed with the cover.
