Car was leaking oil and coolant, the intake manifold, gaskets and pc valve were replaced...cost me $350.
Same thing happened to me. The mechanic said something about it a while ago, but said it wasn't a big problem. More recently he said I needed to get it fixed. He replaced the gasket and now I am good to go. Cost me about $325 bucks.
