hi im markoz and i have a 2001 mercury sable 3.0 DOHC, and i´m from mexico, i expect this not to be a problem. and my best wishes for everyone.



well this is the problem my lower intake manifold seems to be broken from the right side, and i broke a screw (the large one) and it´s generating a vacum leak and its pretty noise, that vacuum was generating my car stumbling and a code P301,P303...the misfiring on that cilynders because a lot of air is entering.
i changed the motor oil, tranny oil, spark plugs, coil plugs,


so what can i do, should i fix or be replaced, if i can fix this part can you guide me please
however i will apreciate your help

thanks!!!

i attach a photo, it´s not mine but there is the problem

I'm guessing its plastic, which would require full replacement of the LIM. Even if it was aluminum I would replace it, as getting the old one completely sealed and air tight would be almost impossible.

And that's a good shot of the PCV valve for other members too.

That looks like the picture I took!

Go ahead and replace the LIM and make sure you get the updated LIM gasket kit when you replace it.
