      $1200 repair because it's a one-piece manifold. This is a pita job. $300 or so is the valve cover, rest is labor. I'm not so sure it should be that much but I believe Mitchell labor guide quotes a...

      You can narrow down the location of the leak by spraying some brake cleaner in the area where you believe your vacuum leak is.

      I would not use a harness that doesn't match the production date. There were some slight variations. For one, the intake manifold was different and had an extra harness for it to...

      0232103019AFT is not a ref # of the Bosch but is for the...
