Wow, why do you YouTubers reach down to the lower fuel hose connection? It's much easier to remove at the top! The fuel rail was not removed. The entire intake was cleaned. A brush and cleaner work good.

Is this a cold CCV system? It has foam on it. I left it on. The manifold upper return hose broke. I'll have to order another one.

The piece I didn't count on breaking was the transmission thermostat. It broke apart trying to remove it. A new one will be ordered. Once a new thermostat is installed, the system can be filled for testing. The oil cooler has new o-rings too. Any hose that was not included in a kit had new o-rings installed.
