AC stopped coling, so I tried adding coolant, but it will not take it. What could be the problem? I've replaced the compressor three times in the last two years....agh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 2004 C230 has 57,000 miles on it (Pacific Northwest)and it now needs the intake manifold gasket replaced. I don't want the dealer to do the repair for obvious reasons ($$$)...Can anyone give me a ballpark cost for a qualified mechanic to replace my gasket? The part is less than $10, so I know the cost is pretty much all labor...thanks in advance for your help...

Today I tried starting it again, now the car wont Crank & Start,cant hear the Fuel pump going, no clicking on Starter..but Battery is good...All Windows,Stereo,lights are on. I did notice burning smell right by the (MAF & Wiring Connections,Ignition) areas. I Need help!!!
