91 Camaro 3.1 Upper Intake Stuck





Just got my first 91 Camaro a few month ago that needs a lot of work and I am getting to it as I can. I think it may have a few bad fuel injectors but I am having trouble getting the upper intake off. Whoever owned the car previously apparently never heard of gaskets and everything is held together with RTV sealant from what I can tell. Have everything unbolted that I can see but the upper intake won’t budge. Throttle body was stuck on as well even after unbolting but eventually came free with the help of a rubber mallet. Any suggestions!? Still semi new to working on cars so any advice is appreciated.

There are the 5 bolts on each side that you have removed , and the bracket for the throttle cable . Since I can see in your pictures that you do in fact have all the bolts out it's just stuck by the glue , stick a 4 or so foot piece of a 2X4 piece of wood under it and with some upward pressure it should come apart .

Your Welcome , Glad to help .

If you do end up needing injectors , look to the site sponsor "South Bay Fuel Injectors" . He helps keep this board running by being a sponsor and gives a discount to members of this board . He has many many good reviews here and is a trusted source for injectors , he is highly recommended .

bonus: if you ever have trouble with your exhaust gaskets leaking, get some remflex gaskets.
