LOWER intake manifold gasket, yes.

And some people call a supercharger a manifold if you want to talk upper.



Remove the tails, drain them out, and apply sealant to the gaskets on the upper half only (eyebrows) and put them back.

No more water.

What'* with the short sleeves? You'd think it was warm or somewhere south!!!!
Nice car for a first car..... kinda makes me think of my first car -a 1987 Dodge Lancer 2.2L turbo. How long before he grenades the weak spot (transmission? -in the Lancer it was the trans also, which surprised me, because I thought it would be the motor considering it'* reputation).
Hopefully he takes care of it. I suspect he'll do better than I did considering his old man is driving a Bonneville (my ol' man was driving a 1987 Nissan Stanza at the time I got my first Lancer) and will want to at least attempt to at least be able to say he'* driving the same kind of car pop'* scare'* the **** out of people with.
Good luck Victor- it'* not a new car, but you have a got a car that can help you build financial stability, be a car to make memories with and will be the car you will look back on as the car that all future cars have to match in the fun and quality factors. Enjoy!

Ya sorry, I should have been more specific. It was the leaky Lower Intake manifold gasket change. Just couldn't believe it cost him that much.

Thanks for all the tips Bill. You're the man

Locking gas caps .......check.........but a giving mother with my credit card.


It'* very warm here today...almost 60 F.

It was funny watching him laugh at the volumes of steam that was coming off his front brakes with the water hose.

Hey! It looks like my car! I don't have that weird door handle problem you and Haro seem to have, but I have noticed one thing - the little cup area under each door handle is a little bit too scratched. Do you have that problem too?

Frankly, I'm jealous of the condition. You've made an awesome, awesome purchase. Will it make a showing at WCBF 08?

I just replaced that handle all together.

If it is one of the stick on ones; try "sawing" it off with dental floss.
