How to Replace the Intake Manifold on All 1997 - 2000 Toyota Camry / Avalon 2.2L 4 Cyl Engines.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

CAUTION

Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

5S-FE Engines

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable. On vehicles equipped with an air bag, wait at least 90 seconds before proceeding.
  • Drain the engine coolant into a suitable container.
  • Disconnect the accelerator cable from the throttle body. If equipped with automatic transmission, disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle body.
  • Disconnect the intake air temperature sensor connector
  • On California models, disconnect the air cleaner hose.
  • Loosen the air cleaner hose clamp bolt, disconnect the 4 air cleaner cap clips, disconnect the air hose from the throttle body, and remove the air cleaner cap together with the resonator and the air cleaner hose.
