What thing are we talking about again???^^^^^ Dane if u have a haynes manual ( I could be wrong) I just seen in the book on page 6-24 fig 15.5a it points where he was pointing with the green arrows. idk in the haynes there calling that thing just above it a short runner valve actuator. idk see for yourself if u have the book.

There is jst an o-ring behind the MTV put I was unable to find the correct one. The dealer didn't show it as being a separate part and said they could only get the entire manifold. Also my father had a 2002 Intrepid 3.5 that did not have the valve but it leaked. The dealer changed the entire intake under warranty.

Yes, at least around here, the MTV o-ring is not sold separate -- bastards. You can remove the MTV and re-seal it using the old O-ring and coating it with RTV sealant and it works perfectly. Its very common for them to leak oil.

O ok for sec. I was doubting myself maybe I had it wrong. O well all figured out now.

About 80% will. Every one Ive seen with some miles on it does. Mine started around 30K miles.

Its only a 15 minute fix as long as the oil flowing onto the radiator hose didnt destroy it. Just remove the MTV valve, clean the valve, the O-ring, and the hole, and reinstall using a coat of RTV grey sealant on the O-ring. As long as the O-ring isnt torn up, it can be re-used. Last I knew the dealer only sold the O-ring with a new MTV valve, so unless you want to blow the $80 or so for the valve, reuse the old O-ring.

If the oil leak made the upper radiator hose all squishy then that needs to be replaced also, and you exceed the 15 minute time estimate.
