manifold gasket 300tdi

Suspected my gasket was shot by the amount of oil built up around the intake. I was right...

From poking around the web it seems to be a pretty common failure mode. I suspect caused by torquing down the exhaust manifold first and then the intake. I torqued all the fasteners from the center outward. That precludes using a torque wrench but then again I've never been able to use one on any of my other engines' manifolds so I guess tight will have to suffice.

There are a few different type of gaskets that you can use. I found an all metal one that is said? to be better?

From what i remember the metal one is the correct replacement, but i'm not 100% sure.

Not sure if was the metal one you speak of but it was a new one from RDS as pictured on their site. The vehicle is much quieter now and seems to have a bit more power in the top end.

I had the option of getting a fiber one or metal when I ordered mine. I have used both with success.

Remember to change you plastic coolant thermostat housing filling screw with a brass one, the one on the radiator also. Easy to find on eBay.

Not my engine- photo grabbed from another website. I did change those plugs the same day I changed the gasket. Always carried two spares of the plastic ones up until this point.

Just did this on mine. The plastic ones seem to have an o-ring, but the brass ones don't. Should I have fitted one? They don't seem to leak as is.

Also wish I had found nicer hose clamps than the ones I used

I wonder if my gasket is in the shape yours is - the EGR block-off plate didn't have a gasket on it, and it was leaking oil when I first fired up the motor in my truck... I put a gasket on, but was concerned by the amount of oil running down there. What do you think?
