Coming to the end of my list for my CS and im looking for that donut gasket that goes on the rear Ex. manifold but no one seems to carry them, since its a metal piece and it comes with a new complete exhaust mainifold is it safe to assume i need a new manifold instead of just the donut gasket since the manifold could be damaged? and does anyone know where to find just the donut gasket? Theres a definite sound of leaky raspy 3100 coming out of the front and that donut like to pop in and out of place every time i shift or stop then go. Jackass that replaced my cat. conv. years ago left of the flex pipe and thats what caused it, now they wont even touch it let alone own up to it. Might as well do it myself and know its done right
Im replacing the LIM gasket and trying to talk the guy whoe helping me into the head gasket but he says its to much trouble if its not needed, i argue that its a 19 y/o head gasket with 120K miles on it, and that should be reason enough. So while ive got the engine apart that far down it shold be alot easier and im replacing the exhaust system so it will have to come off anyways.
