Refer to Exhaust Crossover Replacement . <LI type=1>Disconnect the left (front) spark plug wires. Refer to Spark Plug Wire Harness Replacement in Engine Electrical. <LI type=1>Remove the oil level indicator tube bracket. Refer to Oil Level Indicator and Tube Replacement .


    <LI type=1>Remove the left (front) engine lift bracket bolt and nut from the left (front) exhaust manifold. <LI type=1>Remove the left (front) engine lift bracket from the left (front) exhaust manifold.


    <LI type=1>Remove the left (front) exhaust manifold heat shield nuts. <LI type=1>Remove the left (front) exhaust manifold heat shield.


    <LI type=1>Remove the left (front) exhaust manifold retaining bolts and nuts. <LI type=1>Remove the left (front) exhaust manifold.
  2. Remove the left (front) exhaust manifold gasket.
Installation Procedure


  1. <LI type=1>Install the left new (front) exhaust manifold gasket. <LI type=1>Install the left (front) exhaust manifold. Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

    Tighten the left (front) exhaust manifold bolts and nuts to 30 N·m (22 lb ft).



    <LI type=1>Install the left (front) exhaust manifold heat shield. <LI type=1>Install the left (front) exhaust manifold heat shield nuts. Tighten
    Tighten the left (front) exhaust manifold heat shield nuts to 20 N·m (15 lb ft).



    <LI type=1>Install the left (front) engine lift bracket to the left (front) exhaust manifold. <LI type=1>Install the left (front) engine lift bracket bolt and nut. Tighten
    Tighten the left (front) engine lift bracket bolt and nut to 30 N·m (22 lb ft).
    <LI type=1>Install the oil level indicator tube bracket. Refer to Oil Level Indicator and Tube Replacement . <LI type=1>Connect the left (front) spark plug wires. Refer to Spark Plug Wire Harness Replacement in Engine Electrical. <LI type=1>Install the exhaust crossover to the left (front) at the manifold. Refer to Exhaust Crossover Replacement . <LI type=1>Install the engine mount struts. Refer to Engine Mount Strut Replacement and Engine Mount Strut Replacement . <LI type=1>Install the fuel injector sight shield. Refer to Fuel Injector Sight Shield Replacement or Fuel Injector Sight Shield Replacement .
  2. Connect the battery ground (negative) cable. Refer to Battery Negative Cable Disconnection and Connection in Engine Electrical.

Thanks GMCSonoma. I have lot's of work on my 98 GTP. It was a free passdown from my sister who didn't take care of it. Those are nice detailed step by step instructions. Is there a place I could go and buy the whole CD manual for the car?
Forgot to ask. Can the rear manifold gasket be replaced without taking the engine out? Would I need special tools?
