It is the SV6 Ute...Feb 2008 built to 2009 Specs....195kW. V6 Engine Auto with 5 Speed Active Select....Alloy Tech High Output.....it has done 123000 kms…..with the engine never been touched....except oil changes at 8000kms, tyres, brake linings etc...never suffered with the timing chain problems...it is not the SIDI which was a later variant.....the good book says change S/Plugs at 120000kms.....thanks for your time...I can do the job myself...but want to know if there are hang ups to look for.....thanks.Is there a thread on here on how to remove Air intake Manifold....thanks
Yes there is some good info here....but does not show how to remove the Alloy air inlet manifold on the sv6 to gain access to the spark plugs....I am able to tackle the job myself....but wish to know if there are any problems to look for removal....I thought there maybe a thread here with some instructions etc.
I asked my regular service mech to change the plugs and coils for that reason, he asked if it was hard to start, fuel economy down, running rough or missing ……………. no, to all counts. His advice was to leave it until something like those things started to happen. 15Km later, still no problems......the good book says change S/Plugs at 120000kms..... .
This is a good guide for your project.Good luck
Thanks for the video.....I get the idea for the removal of the manifold.....it is exactly as I thought with the removal...I knew about the bolt up under the cowling at the back...but was unaware of what was connected to the back of the manifold....I think I will take FIGJAM'S advice and leave it until I finally do have to do the S/Plugs....I have included some pictures of my manifold.This is a good guide for your project.Good luck
