Q: If I replace the intake manifold gasket, is any computer reset involved?

asked by on

I want to replace the intake manifold gasket on my 1998 GMC 1500 Sierra pickup my self. Is there any computer work or resets involved, as I don't have any diagnostic tools?

My car has 179000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You should not have any kind of computer reset unless your check engine light is on now.
