Well my bird has been sititng for a while now because i figured it was a blown head head gasket. I replaced the intake manifold gasket's and all that and it still smoked... but i was reading a bit today and saw that the intake can actually break causeing this problem. can anyone give me a little bit more info about this?? and why it happens? It will help me out a ton.

thanks

ohhh yeaa

your intake dont crack its metal, the newer 96-7 4.6's had a composit lower intake and behind the alt it tends to crack. but you dont have one, so dont worry about it.

If your intake breaks you'll know it - coolant instantly gushes out and covers everything! We're not talking little leak - 'more like Niagara Falls!

If you can afford it, don't pull the heads. Pull the motor and find a 99+ GT motor or an 02 Explorer motor and swap that in. The results will be worth it.
