This part not only fixed my leaking anti freeze problem but fixed my a/c which is a necessity in texas. I recommend this especially if you have a LS model mercury grand marquis.
Working great
July 23, 2017
2006 Crown Victoria LX FFV. Fairly straightforward install. Spent a lot of time cleaning the mating surfaces on the heads. My kit only came with 1 plug instead of 2 as listed on the parts included. I needed both so a trip to Home Depot was necessary. Got 2 plugs from the pipe parts section and added some pipe compound to the threads. They worked great. Mine was found to be definitely leaking from the deformed original gasket beneath the metal thermostat housing and the same area on the opposite bank. Didn't find any obvious cracks. Car has 160,000+ miles. Also replaced all 8 coils and both spark plugs where antifreeze leaked into the spark plug holes on both banks along with the injector o-rings in the fuel rails on both sides. No leaks yet. Fan motor went out two days later and the car overheated. Had to get a new assembly from Autozone for that due to time constraints. Lots of city driving and a 120 mile road trip yesterday. So far all is well.

iaauto always has the correct part at the best price. I am a happy repeat customer. Thanks!
Not trouble free
August 27, 2017
While i am happy with the manifold in general, I had a problem with the lack of new manifold bolts, to replace the rusted and rounded off heads on some that where hard to remove.. Also at the rear of the manifold has a rubber cap on a riser for auxiliary heater. The cap blew off while test driving and i lost a lot of coolant. plus the engine overheated leaving me stranded for a while.. i had to make up my own method to cap off this riser. Other wise i cant complain for the price.
Great Price
September 11, 2017
Found this manifold to be reasonably priced.Like the Lifetime warranty. Think its alot better than most out there. No names mentioned.lol. I recommend this manifold before alot others.
Well constructed replacement part Sort Of.
October 6, 2017
Product arrived in xlnt condition and on time. Thanks you UPS. The installation instructions are not as good as they could be, However The 1 A Auto Video was excellent. After bolting everything up one of the last steps was to install the thermostat into the housing. That's where it went to S--- The T Stat didn't fit. Out comes Mr Dremel Tool a grinding wheel, drum sander , and polishing cloth , think overcome and improvise. mission accomplished. Finished the job Car runs perfect with no leaks. Word to the wise. It s a really good time to install new spark plugs and fuel injector nozzle O rings.
Very good quality intake manifold!!!
October 16, 2017
I would very much so recommend this intake to anyone.....its very good quality plastic...actually better then original......and awesome new gaskets are Molded into the part it's self......i would buy again
Why the intake manifold leaves a lot to be desired.
October 23, 2017
The manifold came several days before it was estimated to arrive which was great The manifold went in well. However, when I started to replace the spark plugs I noticed that I had more trouble putting in the spark plug then in the original. I discovered that the cutouts in the manifold were angled differently then my original causing manifold to slightly cover the spark plug hole in the heads. The problem caused my spark plug socket not to go into the hole easily to remove or replace the spark plugs. My 3/8 inch socket barely went into the hole and my 1/2 inch socket didn't go in the hole at all. My 3/8 inch socket went into number 8 cylinder and I couldn't get it out of the hole with the extension so I had to pull up the socket as far as I could than grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers to finally get the socket out. The manufacturer should make the cutouts in the manifold closer to the original manifold cutouts. I would have taken the manifold out and sent it back, but i

My mechanic called me to let me know that the quality of it is not that great. He had problems with the installation, some issues with putting injectors back and couple other small things. He said he had to use some tricks to get it done. Original clamps where not holding tight enough he said. Other than that , car runs good, I didn't notice any difference in performance so far

November 22, 2017
The part fits perfect and it was delivered at the right time for me to use it. I love the way my car runs now. I will order more parts (if needed) from you and tell all of my friends about it.
Excellent product, great service
January 25, 2018
The product was great, service was great, even the YouTube video explaining how to install it was great. I do need to balance this review though. I wish that 1A's website would have mentioned something about "do you want to order a new sound deadening part"... that would have been nice as I forgot about this and it would have been nice to put a new one in. Beyond that, as I said, I highly recommend this company.

How to video saved me $600
April 6, 2018
I couldn't afford to take my car to the mechanic.I was quoted over $ 750 to have new intake installed on my 2003 Grand Marquis.I was to afraid to tackle the job myself. But came across the install video from A-1. The video was so detailed I felt confidant I could dothe job.Bought the part+free shipping saved me money compared to Autozone. Replaced the intake in one day. Followed the video through the entire installation. It was a breeze. Awesome video Guys. Much appreciation for your detailed help. I'll be back!
Excellent product, plus THANK YOU for making a video guide!
April 27, 2018
This was my first purchase from 1A auto. I had a cracked manifold on my '04 Crown Victoria, and the shop quoted me over $1500.00 to install a replacement, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. I have done some basic maintainence in the past, oil changes, brakes, shocks, but never anything like this. The YouTube video instructions that accompany this part were an enormous help. I was able to follow along step by step, and successfully install this part! I have been driving the Crown Vic every day for about 2 weeks now after the repair, and no more coolant leak! Thank you 1A!
Great service, outstanding price.
April 30, 2018
Ordering was a pleasant experience. The rep on the phone was courteous, professional and American. The part came fast and went in easy. The 1A how-to video library is top notch and extremely helpful. Back on the road fast, easy, and at a reasonable price. 1A Auto made it happen. We’ll be doing business again. Thanks guys!!
Your the greatest.
May 18, 2018
The part I received was exactly what I needed and the video of your mechanic installing this intake was by far, one of the best videos I have ever seen.

Great work and thank you for caring enough to send this follow up after the order
Happy costumer

Good fit
September 1, 2018
The installation went like it should. Video and instructions are very helpfull
good fit but the hardware sucked
September 2, 2018
About about 75% of the bolts I used to put the new manifold on my car and the bolts I used to install the intake assembly we're not the original because the original bolts were too long for the new assembly. I took the old intake manifold and stripped it of every bolt on it. The old intake assembly has very short bolts that hold the aluminum crossover in place I use those short bolts to bought my throttle body to the top I also use those bolts to attach my alternator. Very disappointed very disappointed that 1aauto did not supply me with the right Hardware but the God damn thing works it does not leak I made it function properly by bastardizing the old parts to get the replacement working and satisfied customer just be where you're going to strip every bolt off the old assembly

Intake manifold
November 6, 2018
The part did the job, and was much less expensive than others. Has the orings pre installed which is nice. Unfortunately neither of the alternator brackets fit correctly. The one that was supposed to fit needed to be re bent and have the holes drilled larger. Just a slight manufacturing defect. Also the coolant crossover is not all aluminum as I thought it would be. Most of it is aluminum, but it is still plastic where it meets the cylinder heads.

Intake Manifold
January 5, 2019
Product as advertised. Came with install instructions that specified a different bolt torque sequence than recommended in the Ford Workshop Manual. Used the sequence specified by 1AAuto and manifold appears to be seated and sealing properly. As mentioned by others, the spark plug access ports do not fully align with the plug holes such that must use needle nose pliers to grab and fish out the spark plug socket from 2 of the 8 access ports. The heat insulating box under the old manifold was brittle and pieces broke off during disassembly. Would have been nice if 1AAuto supplied a new insulating box with the manifold. The new manifold and the new injector o-rings that were installed have corrected the vacuum leaks from the old manifold and improved engine performance.
Coolant leak solved! Perfect fit!
January 7, 2019
Fit perfect and so far so good with no leaks. Excellent price and fast shipping. If you have the dreaded Ford 4 6 coolant leak. This is your answer. You do need to be a little careful with the coil screws as they do not have the brass inserts and use a self tapping screw. They can strip easy, but not complaining for the cost of this replacement. All the seals sealed perfect with no sealer or RTV.

Biggest car project
August 7, 2019
I drive a 2003 Lincoln Town Car. When I found out that my car needed a new intake manifold...I freaked. After doing some research I can across the 1aAuto how to video on how to replace the intake manifold. I ordered the part from 1aAuto and received it within 4 days (free shipping). I set my iPad up and had the video playing and fixed my car. This was the biggest car project I’ve ever tackled myself. The part fit perfect and I am very pleased with the quality of the part and the very helpful how to video. Thank you 1aAuto.
Excellent Part

November 4, 2019
PROs: - Online video of instillation was spot on! - Intake came with the parts need to accommodate the newer design! - Everything bolted up correctly! - Part's price was reasonable compared to other sources. - Delivery was free but came a couple of days later than I initially believed it would arrive... Not a deal breaker! CONs: - I read the reviews and noticed some complaints about the bolts (there are 5) connecting the thermostat/crossover pipe to the main intake body were not correctly tightened and the complete install job had to be repeated in order to get to the bolts that need tightening. Some reviews returned the intake because of the leaks caused by improper tightening of these bolts. - The 5 bolts that attach the above mentioned crossover pipe were not correctly tightened on my part. One seemed snug and the other 4 were loose. There are NO instructions on the torque specs of these 5 bolts so I tightened the 4 loose bolts to a similar snugness of the 1 that seemed snug.
Near perfect OEM fit

What can I say? First time buying a product from them for an essential function of my car that needed replacement went without a hitch! Being an amateur car enthusiast, I was able to follow their high quality and very thorough and very detailed instructional video. Everything came included in the replacement kit and the gaskets are integrated. The only thing that I will ask to be included in the kit, is the foam bucket that comes factory at the bottom of the intake. Other than that, very fair and competitive pricing for parts.

*** Replacing Intake Manifold on 2004 Ford Crown Vic ***
December 28, 2019
My local Ford dealership wanted $1200 to replace my manifold and of that, $382 was for the parts. I saved over $1000 by replacing the part with the help of my son and the very thorough step-by-step video on 1a auto's website!!! I'd like to see you create more videos like the one you did to replace the manifold for the 2004 Crown Vic. Specifically I'd like to see a detailed video on how to replace the blend door actuator. My dealership wanted $992 to replace that!! I haven't been able to find a detailed video from a reputable source on the internet for me to attempt that repair. Keep making more detailed repair videos that helps the Average Joe save money!! Claudia in Topeka KS
Perfect replacement!
February 4, 2020
This was an exact fit with a good price. It was a learning experience doing the actual replacement. I also used the 1A Auto video for reference before and during the task. The video was right on the mark with step by step instructions and stating all the exact tools needed tho accomplish the job. THANKS 1A AUTO! I will definitely be using your services and products in the future.
Perfect fit.

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
Can I purchase the aluminum crossover speperatley?
January 14, 2016
I Don't think so.
January 14, 2016
To the best of my recollection, the aluminum crossover and polymer (?) water channels are all fused as one piece, and all torqued down together. So, the short answer is "no."
January 14, 2016
It depends on the year of your vehicle. The new manifold upgrade came about in 2007. After that year the manifold comes with the cross over already attached.
January 14, 2016
No,it is an integral part of the manifold.
January 15, 2016
No I dont think you can. That is what the problem is from factory. The silver part used to be plastic over time it would crack. Got to replace whole manifold. Hope that info helps. Good luck. About a 6 hr job.
January 15, 2016
We only carry it as this kit. This will also come with a lifetime warranty, so if any part failed it would all be covered. Thank you and have a great day!
January 19, 2016
No it is molded to intake as part of the newer improved design.
October 30, 2017
FYI the metal crossover is not entirely metal. The base of each side is still plastic.

How does the intake manifold compare to Dorman?
June 6, 2017
I installed that very intake and am very pleased with the performance
June 7, 2017
The fit was great everything need for the installation was provided. Only took a couple hours to install
June 7, 2017
Our intakes will perform the same, if not better than Dorman's and appear the same.
June 7, 2017
The two are comparable in quality. The Dorman was about five buck less expensive.
August 1, 2017
Will this fit a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria PI?
October 29, 2017
This part will not fit on a 1999 model. Please check out part number 1AEIM00010 for one that will fit your model!
October 29, 2017
Police models have performance improved cylinder heads and intake. A stock intake will not fit.

Do I need to buy a gasket separately or does it come with it?
December 26, 2017
The gasket in already included. You won't need to purchase a separate one.
December 26, 2017
All gaskets are already on the manifold. No gaskets needed. This is actually a very simple install.
December 26, 2017
Mine came with gaskets
December 26, 2017
The gaskets are integrated onto the intake manifold, and there is no need to purchase separately.
December 27, 2017
No it comes with built in individual gaskets
December 28, 2017
I is a complete kit, the only issue is with the bypass plug on the back. Replace it with a piece of heater hose and a solid plug and two good hose clamps.
December 29, 2017
Comes with o rings on each port
January 1, 2018
Who is the manufacturer ?
April 13, 2018
I don't remember. I put this on my 03 Mustang GT and it fit just as the OEM. No issues even almost two years later
April 13, 2018
We have a few different aftermarket companies build these parts specifically for us, as our 1A Auto house brand. They are manufactured to the same OEM specifications as the original part that came with your vehicle. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
April 15, 2018
I have the heated pvc so this part will not work? Or dose it matter i have been told it wont.
July 4, 2018
This kit may work for you, but it may be missing required openings or fittings to function properly in your vehicle. It would be best to replace the part with one that is listed for your specific vehicle. Thank you!
July 4, 2018
not a problem ,its a lot of work,do you have the skills/
July 6, 2018
The manifold worked
May 6, 2020
Do I need to use RTV or other gasket maker to install this manifold?
August 13, 2018
No. Just clean the mating surfaces very thoroughly
August 13, 2018
The RTV or a gasket maker is not needed for the installation.

How long does it take to install in 2001 lincoln?
March 5, 2019
The installation time is about two hours.
March 5, 2019
What else will I need? I see it comes with the gasket but before I submit my purchase I have to know if there's anything else required
March 19, 2019
Nothing just the right tools
March 19, 2019
Buy from Summit A1 was not exact fit and covered plug holes
March 20, 2019
You might want to change spark plugs and coils while you are there. Be careful of heat shield below intake manifold. Study any u tube videos you can find. Take your time ,not to hard of a job. Also you will want to use torque wrench when installing. Good Luck.
March 20, 2019
With this manifold kit you would not need any further parts if you're just replacing that. Good luck with your install!
March 20, 2019
You wont need nothing else. Just make sure when you mount the fuel injection rail it doesn't pinch any lines. Same with the alternator bracket. The bolt on the back of the engines left side is hard to get to on certain vehicles I removed my windshield wiper box on my 2001 towncar. You may want to mark stuff like hoses with tape, You may even want to take pics. Also.check.that heater line that runs under manifold. In all its real easy. Just having too remove everything is the only hard part. Take your time and watch some videos on you tube ...
March 23, 2019
Not that I recall but when you have things apart its alot easier to replace plugs, thermostat and radiator hoses
March 25, 2019
this manifold looks a little different , mine has a place in the rear for an additional coolent hose, which i had to plug , as i didnt need it. Easy to do. good luck
April 1, 2019

August 26, 2019
This part will be correct as long as you also have the V8 4.6L and do no have the coolant-heated PCV. Thank you for the inquiry!
August 27, 2019
I have a 2006 Ford Crown Vic, it does NOT have a coolant temp sensor on my current intake manifold, it has a flat surface no opening for anything. What do I need to fill the hole on the new intake manifold ?
October 29, 2019
You should not need to fill up the opening with anything and should leave as is. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
October 29, 2019
Is this for the pi heads?
November 8, 2019
I guess your talking about police interceptor. all these engines use the same parts far as I know.
November 9, 2019
Fits are listed under the Vehicle Fit tab, Is the vehicle equipped with coolant-heated PCV
November 11, 2019
