Model Years Affected: 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997

Engine Affected: 2.4L 5 Cylinder


The intake manifold gasket can leak and cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate, idle speed to be erratic and a hard starting engine. A hissing noise can often be heard from the gasket area when the leak is bad enough. Removal of the intake manifold is needed to replace the gasket.
