I have seen on here that someone has a a how to on cleaning the intake manifold. Thing is I can not find it. Does anyone know where it is or can tell me how to? Pictures would be great. Thanks

Re: Cleaning Intake Manifold

Do you mean the "throttle body"?

No, I meant intake manifold. It is what your throttle body is connected to, what evenly distributes your air to all cylinders.

Re: Cleaning Intake Manifold

I'd be really interested to see the process. I saw you posted in the other thread about cleaning the diffuser, thats what got my interest.

Re: Cleaning Intake Manifold

I haven't seen one here. You plan on removing the intake manifold right?

Re: Cleaning Intake Manifold

I was under the impression that if you stopped supplying egr into the intake manifold that most of the crap that's in there would burn up over time?

Hm, I was under the impression that if there were no EGR then the gases in the intake manifold would be relatively cool. I mean, doesn't it require 600+ °C to do a DPF soot burn off? I imagine DPF soot is similar to this intake manifold build up.

Re: Cleaning Intake Manifold

The intake manifold isn't hot under normal conditions. Nowhere near hot enough to burn out oil caked carbon lol.

I'd go out on a limb and say the intake needs to be removed and soaked/scraped/burned clean every 60k-80k judging from other diesel engines I've seen?

This is exactly why I asked if anyone had done this already and had a how to. I'm sure people are up to that mileage already
