    I need to replace the synchro at the back of my 1995 4.0 engine. This issue is well documented here I know BUT........I cannot get to the camshaft synchro because of its location.

    I want to remove upper intake.

    I cannot find a thread that covers the removal of the intake. I found video on YT covering the 96 upper intake removal with the fella ultimately removing his EGR to fix a leak..and it looks almost identical.

    Is EGR disconnect neccesary for upper intake removal ?

    Will I have to replace a gasket or anything when I replace the upper intake ?

    here is a link to that video.



    Thank you

    yes you will need new upper plenum O rings (aka intake manifold gasket) and a new EGR O ring

    I twist the upper plenum off of the EGR tube
    Basically unhook the computer wiring and ground connection this will give you enough room to pull the upper intake up and over the fuel rail studs and able to twist the intake off of the EGR hose.
