Okay... So in two weeks I am going to be doing the intake manifold gasket replacement. The questions I have (and please feel free to give me your input as well) are to get me more prepared so hopefully I won't have to go to the store during the repair.
Since the end of last year my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has been leaking coolant little by little and I know for a fact that it is the intake manifold. My oil hasn't been effected at all and I think the engine hasn't really gotten any coolant inside of it. Anyway I know that this needs to be fixed so here I am. My questions are as follows...
Should I purchase the fel pro gasket set from napa? I know that I want aluminum instead of plastic (I wouldn't be here if GM mighta done that off the bat) Here's the link. Store Locator | NAPA Online
When I am cleaning the intake manifold and where the gasket goes can I just use brake cleaner to spray it down with?
While I have everything ripped apart is there anything else I should worry about replacing?
I know that everyone has burned this subject over and over again but I just wanna make sure I do everything like I'm suppossed to becuz my car doesn't deserve any less Also I don't have 1400 bucks to have a mechanic do it... Thanks in advance for your help!
