Before you tear into it, there are two important steps, 1 DISCONNECT the negative battery terminal 2 Drain any engine coolant that may still be in the car there is a small drain near the bottom of the radiator. After these two steps, you must gain access to the intake manifold by removing some things that are in your way. You can then lift the engine cover off of the engine. Loosen the two Philips screws on the housing itself, then pull the throttle body hose end off.

Peel Lol course descrip the top of the hose, then work around until the whole thing comes loose Disconnect the plug going into the intake hose, and remove whole assembly from car. Remove alternator and set aside. To remove one of the bolts, you must remove a bracket which runs from the Alternator to just below the Ignition coils.
There is a bolt which is hard to see just below the belt idler pulley.
Remove the electrical connector going to the MAP sensor sits on top of the intake manifold near the alternator 8 Remove all vacuum lines going to the throttle body and intake manifold. You will see two plastic lines going the the fuel rail, they are both held in by small plastic clips.
To remove them, squeeze in on the bottom of the clips, then pull up on the fuel line. There are four nuts which keep the fuel rail, and injectors in place.
Once you remove those four 10mm nuts, carefully wiggle and pull upwards on the fuel rail, and the injectors will unseat themselves from the lower intake manifold, and the whole fuel rail will come out. There is a bracket which connects the throttle body to the cylinder head, this little bracket blocks access to one of the throttle body nuts.
My trick is to remove the Bracket-to-throttle body bolt, then carefully pry the bracket back until you have enough access to reach the nut with a deep 10mm socket and extension.
You can leave the throttle cables attached to the throttle body, and just position the entire assembly aside.
At this point, you should have clear access to the entire upper intake manifold. If the intake does not want to separate from the lower, then you most likely missed a bolt. Clean the gasket mating surface on the lower intake manifold. It is very important to have a clean mating surface on the top of the lower intake manifold, or you may encounter leaks.
Refill the coolant system. Also it is very important that you remove most of the coolant that may have entered the combustion chambers. Install six new spark plugs and you are good to go. Once everything looks good, you are done! Congratulations, you just saved yourself Hundreds of Dollars by Replacing your own Intake Manifold on a 3.

Often when it begins to fail, the car will show the symptoms of a head gasket failure, however actual head gaskets failing on this engine is VERY rare.
