Everything looks good except the flame trap on the right valve cover, it looks kinda cclogged in the first pic.

Yeah there was some stuff in there, I wasnt sure if it should come out or what. I looked in there and things looked pretty grimy. I am not sure what has been done. I know it has had the 30k service done and it seems like it is pretty extensive. What should I do?

It twists off it's threaded on. Easier to buy a new one and replace it rather then try and clean it, but I hear you can clean it with gas if its not too bad.

Yeha i twisted it off and looked down in there, looked reel grimy, stupid PO's. I got the wrong socket for the valve covers. I intended to get a deep but had a brain fart and got the shallow. Maybe the snap on chick will exchange the shallow for a deep How crucial is the "flame trap"

Not so much that I would worry about it. But on your next parts order get one to replace it with. Hmm, I thought I took my covers off with a normal 12pt socket.

When checking my oil level I noticed the Valley Pan Gasket right at the bottom of the valley was cracked. It crumbled to the touch. Is this something I should replace soon or is it just a sign of leaks to come?

Thanks,

I only unplugged the injectors and remove the wiring harness and the fuel pipe when I did mine. Then the intake assembly can be moved out of the way, not need to take it apart (you just have to be more careful I guess). Not sure how much time I saved since I remember spending a good 8 hours on it (and a little more later on since I could not get the engine started anymore).

Hum.... I should have read the date on the previous posts.....

You probably have a coolant leak which drops on the valley gasket which will then dry and crack.

No, you don't need to replace it (only the top part of the coating is affected).

Odd, I thougt I had replied to this post.

If only the black covering on the intake manifold is cracking, there's nothing to worry about. It has a metal core to it which will most likely be just fine.
