How long should it take to replace the exhaust manifold gasket? It also idles rough, and heard it might be a vacuum leak. That yr vehicle has tons of vacuum lines. Where 2 start?

Do you

Dunno the labor time on it and the cost, it varies with location-try cleaning out the idle air control valve/EGR valve and see what happens

It all depends on your skill level of working on cars. As far as looking for a vaccuum you start the engine get some carb spray and spray around al vaccuum sources. If the idle goes up or down stumbles or dies you found a vaccuum leak.
