I just replaced the intake gaskets on my 98 ranger yesterday due to a horrible coolant leak. its not hard at all and only took me a couple of hours. be sure to replace the valve cover gaskets and the most important thing, the fuel injector O-Rings. I was being cheap and didn't replace the o-rings, fuel leaked onto my exhaust manifold, and caused an engine fire. I now have to replace fuel lines, vacuum lines, and wiring harness. so if your going to do the job, spend the extra few bucks to replace them.

do you know how to access Chilton's free online manuals?

Wow, this thread is several years old.

Is your offer for the CD copy still good?

I have a 99 4.0 and getting ready to do this Job.
