Default 01 SC2 Manifold Coolant pipe repair

01 SC2 had the coolant overflow -to-manifold nipple break off. I had the CARSATURN repair fitting on hand that I bought for another project and did not use.

Anyone here successfully trim the intake manifold without removing it from the engine? Seems like I remember somebody who tried to do this using either a hack-saw blade or a small cutting wheel.

Just looking for any input on this before we resort to pulling the entire manifold off.

I subscribed to these threads related to that repair - might be something in one of these:

Just bought a 3rd gen, so I was looking at possible preventative maintenance items

2001 SC2
Default Re: 01 SC2 Manifold Coolant pipe repair

I did the repair by removing the intake manifold around 3 years ago. I wonder now if I could have used a soldering iron to melt away the part to be removed. If you touched the head with the soldering iron, it would not hurt it like a hacksaw would. I am sure it would smell pretty bad while doing it though! I guess I would first melt off the nipple part, then place the metal replacement on top of what's left and paint the plastic where the metal part doesn't cover so you know how far to melt the plastic to make the repair part fit flush up against the manifold when on the head. It was an idea I recently had. Maybe someone can try it.

...
It's GOOD to have a spare!
