Unhappy found my 2003 vacuum leak

Holy sh-t its a vacuum leak at the intake manifold and the head. went to work garage and found nothing. today while moving to jeep to blow the driveway I open the hood and poured water on the intake connections to the head and cylinder number 5 failed, deader than hell, sh-t. The water did hit the injector as well so I will have to get a syringe and only hit specific locations the determine real leak. it sucks to be a jeep owner today. cheers

There's no point in finding the exact spot of the leak. You'll have to take the manifolds off anyway. You can tell from the gasket where it was leaking. But before you put it back together check the mating surfaces for flatness. Those long castings tend to warp a little as they age, so they may need to be resurfaced.
