Question Asked: Price to repair intake manifold gasket
January 20, 2011, 06:32 PM
I have a slow leak and have an estimate to have the intake manifold gasket replaced. The cost to repair including antifreeze, labor (6 hrs)and parts is $550. Is this a fair price and is it a repair that needs to be done immediately. The light on the dash keeps saying "low coolant".
Problem Reported: Intake Manifold Gaskets May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine  with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
