Just got this car off this guy for $1600 a couple days ago. It has been taken care of you can tell, but we noticed an oil leak. Now I know when you get used cars your most likely gonna be putting money into it, so on with my story. We took it to the mechanic, and what they have to do is replace the intake manifold gaskets due to oil leak, ( said not a shocker with a old car) And recommended new spark plugs, ( I always usually get new ones when I get a used car ) New coolant, and oil change. The ending price 532.00. Is that about typical? The cars engine is a 2.8L and the zip is 95203. Stockton, ca

Intake manifold gasket is 479-638 replacing the spark plugs is 91-121. Also a oil change maybe 30. So 532.00 was a good price.
