RE: Town Car Engine Top
Garner is correct. You just need an upper intake gasket to do the repair. There are 6 bolts (I think) that hold the plenum in place. Just disconnect the linkages and lines and remove the plenum. Unbolt as little as possible. it takes an experienced person about an hour to do. Since this is your first effort, allow at least an afternoon to get it completed. Good luck.

Following is the short and sweet instructions from Alldata.

Disconnect electrical connectors from throttle position sensor, air bypass valve and EGR position sensor.
Disconnect throttle linkage from ball and transmission linkage from throttle body. Remove two throttle cable bracket-to-intake manifold attaching bolts and position bracket and cables aside.
Disconnect upper intake manifold vacuum connections. Disconnect all lines to vacuum tree, EGR valve and fuel pressure regulator.
Disconnect PCV hose from rear of upper manifold.
Disconnect two canister purge lines from throttle body.
Remove flange nut and disconnect EGR tube from EGR valve.
Remove upper intake support bracket-to-upper manifold attaching bolt.
Remove upper intake manifold attaching bolts, then the upper intake manifold and throttle body as an assembly from lower intake manifold.
Reverse procedure to install, noting the following:
Install new gasket on lower intake manifold mating surface.
Torque upper intake manifold attaching bolts to 15 - 22 ft. lbs.
Torque throttle cable bracket attaching bolts to 8 - 10 ft. lbs.

Being way2old is why I need help from younger minds.
