Intake Manifold and Gasket Kit
The Intake Manifold and Gasket Kit contains the intake manifold and its corresponding gaskets. The intake manifold is responsible for evenly distributing the air-fuel mixture to each cylinder in the engine. The manifold has a series of hollow channels called runners that attach to the head of each of the cylinders. The runners extend from a central volume called the plenum. A leaky manifold would cause trouble in your engine, reducing its efficiency. Owing to the difference in pressure in the manifold, a leak in the manifold would cause excess air to enter into the manifold. This air would enter the cylinders along with the fuel-air mixture and cause the fuel to be consumed inefficiently.
The gaskets are a protective means that are fitted between the intake manifold and the engine block. They prevent the air-fuel and emission gases from leaking out of the manifold. They also prevent the heat that is generated by the engine block from entering the manifold. Hence, they help in regulating the temperature needed for the air-fuel mixture. A leaky gasket would result in decreased fuel economy and increased emissions.
If your car has a rough idle or has a sluggish response to the throttle, it could be an indication of a faulty intake manifold or gasket. A puddle of coolant under your car also indicates that the gasket is not doing its job. If your car exhibits any of the aforementioned symptoms, you should have your intake manifold checked out. You must replace the manifold or its gaskets to prevent your car's engine from sustaining further damage.
