220249584198346788Before I spent that kind of $$$, I would check/replace any/all rotted vacuum hose, hose assemblies, PCV & hose & elbows that look rotted or feel spongy. Does not cost near the gasket replacement but will need to be performed especially if nothing has been done during that 154k miles. I replaced most of mine for under $200 and a little grime on my hands (use Nitrile gloves). Go to www.rockauto.com
I do not know the current discount code but someone else may chime in. There is a vacuum assy behind the battery also. Heat and age are terrible on these vacuum lines/hoses.
You might not like to find one lol…Looking online for a Motorcraft manifold. So far can't find one. Tried Amazon, Ford Parts Giant, Rock Auto.
That is really great news! I have no idea why these prices should be so different. Did the Motorcraft manifold come with the big insulating “box” under it?I found a new Motorcraft manifold at a local dealer! $255.01 out the door! So thankful!
Inspecting with my novice eyes, the seals appear to be intact. No obvious signs of leaking. Hoping the plugs look normal when I take them out tomorrow.
So far it's not too difficult. It's meticulous, but it's doable. Take your time, be present.
Here's a few photos for interest. Anything look out of the ordinary? Any signs the valve cover gaskets are leaking?
