Getting to the plenum gasket isn't exactly tough. just time consuming, and requires a little planing to remember where all the frigging clips and bolts go. Gotta love the "where'd I get this extra bolt" when you think you're finished.

Here's a step by step guide to replacing the plenum gasket and how to fix it completely for those who land here looking for a solution to this problem.

Get the Hughes plate with felpro gaskets! Mine has been on about 10 years without an issue.

I have heard that another way to check for vacuum leaks is to use starting fluid and spray it around while the engine is running. If the engine RPM's increase while doing this you have found your leak. I would not do it while the engine is hot but right after starting it.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This .I did a Hugh's kit and it definitely resolves the cause of the manifold leak. The whole cause is an engineering disaster. You never put a gasket between 2 different metals (steel and aluminum) and expect it to stay in place due to different expansion and contraction rates when heated and cooled.
