Need to replace this. How do you remove it? Any help would be appreciated
There simply two bolts that hold it to the manifold. Remove those bolts and it comes off. Depending on your intake manifold, you may have to remove your valve covers to get at the bolts and/or remove the valve. Need more help, give me some more specifics of exactly the problem you are having.
One of the bolts is kinda hard to get to,but when you remove both of them the valve just falls off.
On mine, both of the bolts were hard to get to but luckily one i got them started I was able to turn them with my fingers. I think the body lift made it more difficult.
Thanks for the help. The truck runs like crap when it is connected, so i disconnected it so it ran good. I tried to push the plunger up on it but couldn't budge it. When I remove it, can I clean it or should I just replace it. The blazer is due for inspection at the end of this month. It is 87 K5 350
they run about $70 or so from the dealer. I would just replace it if you know that is the problem. Fairly cheap and easy to do.
Just replace it, I had a problem with my first Camaro with the idle, I pulled it off and put some grease on it. Worked for a while but since it's on the top of the engine over all the heat, it just made a mess of the grease.
