I need some input here.... I was swapping out the intake manifold on my 1992 LT-1.

Everything was going smooth, I'm now applying torque to the intake manifold bolts. To specs VIA FSM.

A few seconds later I'm there sitting on my tire realizing what I had just done.....a few seconds earlier "SNAP!".........out of frustration, I grabbed the broken bolt head, applied silicone to it and placed it in the hole........:vomitbuddy::vomitbuddy::food-smiley-019::food-smiley-019::eek:wnedbutton::1sm258fight::toilet::doh::z1-2:


The intake manifold bolt that I snapped was the 3rd one from the front on the passenger side.

My questions are simple:
1) Will oil leak through there?
2) Will it cause a vacuum leak?


I have no intent in taking that son of a gun intake manifold off again.

If you remove the intake again it should lift right off leaving just the broken bolt that you could now get at and turn out with a pipe wrench or a vicegrip
Hey Mike, I would have to drill, with my luck it's flush with the head LOL
hopefully..otherwise, a drill bit and bolt extractor is in your next tool purchase


An update...so far I see no oil or vacuum leak going on through the siliconed bolt lol.
