The details to replace Intake Manifold is as follows:----


Removal & Installation



Lower Manifold
Specific to:
Ford Edge 2008-2009
Lincoln MKX 2008-2009

WARNING
During engine repair procedures, cleanliness is extremely important. Any foreign material, including any material created while cleaning gasket surfaces that enters the oil passages, coolant passages or the oil pan, can cause engine failure.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the fuel rail, as outlined in the Fuel System Section.
  4. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  5. Remove the 3 thermostat housing-to-lower intake manifold bolts.
  6. Unfasten the 10 bolts, then remove the lower intake manifold.
  7. Remove and discard the intake manifold and thermostat housing gaskets.
  8. Thoroughly clean and inspect all sealing surfaces.

NOTE
If the engine is repaired or replaced because of upper engine failure, typically including valve or piston damage, check the intake manifold for metal debris. If metal debris is found, install a new intake manifold. Failure to follow these instructions can result in engine damage.

  1. Using new intake manifold and thermostat housing gaskets, install the lower intake manifold and the 10 bolts. Tighten to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm) in the sequence shown in the accompanying illustration.
