Exhaust manifold

Could anyone tell me the experience level needed to put in a new exhaust manifold. I am a novice to say the least but am wanting learn more and be able to do some of my own repairs. Oh yea.. It is a 95 4 cyl. I would appreciate any advice.

It's not brain surgery. It's just a little time consuming. Pull your stock air-box and inlet hose to the throttle body so you can get to the bolts. You might need PB Blaster to loosen the bolts and nuts, although I didn't on mine. Take photos as you go along, so you can remember how everything fits.

Any special tools I might need? Guy at the muffler shop said I had this problem... What are the signs, how can I tell for sure myself.

You will need a torque wrench, the torque specs and the tightening order for the manifold bolts. Other than being time consuming and some bolts being hard to reach its not too bad.

If it's your daily driver.....give yourself an entire weekend to get thru it, and have a buddy on standby to help/take a run to parts store.

It's not hard.....it will just take twice as long being new to this.

It's usually best to 'sneak up' on the final torque setting. Go the proper order to 1/2, the setting, then 3/4 , then final. This helps the manifold seat correctly without any leaks.
