well I used one. if GM does not have try auto part store or thisI don't think there's a gasket for the tube to manifold - just found out from a GM parts guy. Do you use any sealant on this junction (EGR tube to exhaust manifold)??
true...put I believe the OP is asking about the gasket on back of intake manifod where the tube bolts to.With stock manifolds there is no gasket between the exhaust manifold and the EGR tube. Peter
Glad to know it just isn't me. I got it out, on 3 different 9C1's I've owned over the years all laying under the car with a simple box wrench, though forget the size off hand. - PeterYes! I did it once with the car on a lift and it wasn't easy. Do you guys go at that bolt from the top or under the car?
Yes it is a b&(^h. I find replacing two exhaust manifold bolts, one near each end, with longer bolts and removing all the rest helps. Push the exhaust manifold outboard an inch or so gives me a lot more room.With stock manifolds there is no gasket between the exhaust manifold and the EGR tube. Guess GM thinks whatever metal they use for the manifold end of the EGR tube is soft enough to be its own gasket against the cast iron intake manifold. Also is it just me or is the bolt that holds the EGR tube to the manifold a pain in the SS to get out? - Peter
