Upper intake gasket

(1999 Ford Explorer)
in Lilburn, GA on May 19, 2010
when having the codes checked, banks 1 & 2 are running lean. have been told that it's the upper intake gasket. how easy is this to do myself and is there someone that can give me step by steps. I've been quoted $300+ to have this done and I am on a seriously fixed budget. . .

Sally,
My suggestion is to get a repair manual if your going to work on your own vehicle. It's easy to get an inexpensive, high quality repair manual online. To be better prepared, read up on the job you're about to perform, it will show you component locations, bolt torque settings and what special tools you'll need. I would verify where the manifold is leaking first, because it could need a lower manifold gasket or a manifold as well.
Try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and you can have one in minutes, for less than $30.00.
