What is the role and job of the intake manifold?
Contributed By: Enginebasics.com
An Intake Manifold, which is also called Inlet Manifold, is a series of tubes attached to several engine parts as well as to the carburetor, if the motor is not fuel injected. This auto part is not just a passageway for the mixture to flow into but it also contributes to a better distribution of the fuel and air. While an Exhaust Manifolds job is to collect all the exhaust gasses and combine them into one outlet for the exhaust, the intake manifold takes the single air inlet and feeds each of the individual cylinders.

Once the carburetor, has thoroughly mixed the air and fuel the said engine mixture passes through the series or manifold of tubes to each of the cylinders. With a fuel injected car the fuel is injected with a fuel injector in to the inake manifold runner right before it enters the cylinder head.
Every auto part is directly responsible for the other components in a vehicle. Without the intake manifold, which is the avenue through which the engine mixture travels along, internal combustion is not possible. With an unsuccessful combustion that may be due of an uneven distribution of engine mixture results to a low or no production of horsepower. These ugly scenarios further illustrate how important the intake manifold is for the engine system and for an efficient vehicle operation. Thus, it is not just advisable for car owners to check the condition of their intake manifolds, it is absolutely necessary.
