Differences between Intake Manifold Gasket and Head Gasket.
What is an Intake Manifold ?
The intake manifold is located on the top of the engine and plays a key role in the combustion process. Besides, the intake manifold makes sure that the air coming into the engine can distribute to the cylinders and it also helps cooling down the cylinders to prevent the engine from getting excessive heat.
