What is an intake manifold gasket?

An intake manifold gasket is the gasket that goes between the intake manifold and the top of the engine block. It is responsible for stopping leaks of air, coolant, or other fluids, and it is vital to maintaining a consistent level of air pressure for the incoming fuel and oxygen mixture. The intake manifold gasket is also made of composite. It is exposed to extreme temperatures, but it is not the same kind of heat and pressure that you see in a head gasket or exhaust manifold gasket.

What can go wrong with an intake manifold gasket?

Similar to other gaskets, the intake manifold gasket can wear down and experience leaks or gaps in the seal. The gasket would be broken down by exposure to heat or chemicals like coolant that have direct contact with the manifold. Unlike other gaskets, except maybe for the valve cover gasket, there is a much higher possibility that the intake gasket can be misplaced or damaged by repairs and other maintenance. The intake is one of the more frequently trafficked areas on the motor during car repairs and will typically be removed for any number of reasons.

How will I know I have a bad intake manifold gasket?

There are several ways to tell that you have a bad intake manifold gasket. The first would be a noticeable leak of coolant or other fluids which may result in visible spots on the ground or white smoke originating from under the hood. Another indicator is a loss of performance, especially during acceleration. It's common to also hear a sucking or vacuum noise while accelerating when there is a bad gasket on your intake manifold. Finally, pay attention for the smell of excess emissions or burnt coolant near y our engine compartment.

When is it smart to get a heavy duty intake gasket?

It's a good idea to consider purchasing a heavy duty intake manifold gasket if you have performance intake parts. The heavy duty gasket will be made of thicker composite with stronger materials like steel and may even have a rubber coating on it. They can withstand much higher temperatures and exposure to more chemicals and solvents. Consider a heavy duty intake manifold gasket if you are using performance intake parts such as a high rise manifold, a tunnel ram, dual carburetors, a supercharger, or a blower.

It sounds pretty simple. Can there really be a problem?

Absolutely, there can be a serious and possibly costly problem with a bad intake manifold gasket. At one point, General Motors actually had problems with the factory intake manifold gaskets on their 4.3 L and 4.6 L motors. The gaskets were getting worn down very quickly by GM's factory recommended engine coolant named Dexocol. Dexocol was the only coolant that could be used in that motor and the constant gasket failures ended up costing GM owners a healthy sum in repairs. Once the connection was made between the Dexocol and the gasket, GM quickly made another gasket available that consisted of different compounds and worked very well with the coolant.
