    I need to replace the intake manifold gaskets on my '02 XLS with the V6 4.0L SOHC Vin #E. I have been reading a lot of threads regarding this procedure. I have seen discussions of upper and lower gaskets. However I can only find parts listings for the lower gaskets. Am I missing something here or does the '02 only have the one set? I know this may seem like a dumb question but I am so tired of researching issues with this truck I figured I would start here this time.

    Thanks for any help.

    Same Question

    I have a 2002 4.0L Explorer. I plan on pulling the intake off in order to replace the valve cover gaskets. Rockauto only has lower sets listed under the part. ??? I used to working on 5.0L mustangs with a distinct upper and lower gasket.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    The 2002 V6 intake manifold is one piece (not sure about the V8, or other year V6's). So call them upper or lower, you will get the same thing. Part no. 1L2Z9461CA

    Thanks for the answer.

    Now that I've looked under the hood, I see what I'm dealing with.
