Throttle Body Assembly
See Figures 1 through 5
The 3.0L engine's throttle body is a 1 piece casting which includes the upper intake manifold. In order to remove the throttle body, the entire upper manifold must be removed. Refer to Engine & Engine Overhaul for the proper procedures.
If scraping is necessary to clean the remaining gasket material off of the mating surfaces, take care to avoid scratching or gouging the soft aluminum.
