WTF is an intake basket? I'm assuming you mean gasket... lol

No real hints.. just take your time and clean everything thoroughly. Make sure you don't get any dirt or debris into the intake ports. Get some sort of good manual so you have all the proper torque specs and you'll be fine!

get a workshop manual or a haynes manual and follow it to a T....if you are using coolant, you may have a cracked head. have a combustion gas test done before you tear into it

It's most likely the upper to lower gasket/o-ring.

I would pull the valve covers and check out the rockers while your in there. My gasket blew at about 85,000 miles and I checked mine.
They were severly worn. I replaced them all and am very glad I took the time to check.

oh, I also replaced my water pump since I was in there. You have so much stuff off, it gave me easy access. Just figured it was cheap insurance to do it then when it was warm out and easy to get to. Unlike my fuel pump that is currently failing and is about 5 degress out. lol
