Hey out there, how's it going? It might be time to do the plenum gasket. Can someone send me the link to that post please! Maybe something illustrated with some pics of the job? lol.

I got my info from this link and I left my thermostat alone. Make sure you clean off the sensors cuz they will have a ton of oil on them. Good Luck!

Good Luck and be patient if you end up broken studs in engine block. I had 3 intake bolts broken. Pb blaster and vise grips worked for me.

PB blaster is good, i use it for everything, except the real hard jobs
KROIL is better, buy it at your local gun shop, it cost more, so just use it on the hard jobs
