Question Answered: exhaust manifold leak
April 20, 2009, 10:50 AM
At 84,000 miles the exhaust maniford cat (part 5L8Z-5G232-CC, cost $531 labor $687.39 parts)and gasket (MS9515, $34.71) were replaced because of "exhaust manifold broken, leaking." This work was done in Redwood City, California, while I was traveling; unfortunately, pre repairpal.com. The Midas rep, Mo, told me there was not a recall on this part. When I asked for the part, Mo told me they had to hold the part for inspection by an agency, but I cannot remember
what agency. Hope this information helps.
Question Asked: brake system flush with master cylinder replacement
April 20, 2009, 10:33 AM
Thank you for your estimate. I have an estimate for a master cylinder remove and replacement and "bleed dydraulic system" with 1qt fluid ($349.70 plus tax and enviroment fees.) Midas also recommended a brake system flush with 1qt fluid ($89.90 plus t/ef). Is the flush necessary if they "bleed hydraulic system" when the master cylinder is replaced? Bleed and flush sound like the same thing... Your response shall be appreciated.
