I had to replace the Intake Manifold Gasket in my car. One week Iam having the same trouble again. On the labor description is says: Intake Manifold Gasket-Remove aned replace. Does that mean also mean the Manifold it self? Also, I was told that they could not replace the oil pan gasket that cost $10.80 and labor was $306.00. What reason why they could not of and why would they still charge me for it? I was told by another mech. that the manifold was sodar together. And not replace.
