HOW TO REPLACE INTAKE MNFLD GASKET

1988 Volkswagen Jetta • 280,000 miles

Car has hard start, vibrates when idling. Drives nicely but drops drops idling after a while.

Shakes badly when fan kicks in and when I switch the head lamps on.

Why do you think changng the intake manifold will solve the problem? Have you tested it for leaks?

Symptom describes an idling issue and such problems are mostly due to dirty throttle body and idle controls. Cleaning them shold solve the problem.
