My engine is a V6 4.3L about 180,000 miles. The coolant is leaking from the intake manifold gasket, so my mechanic told me to change it. Now, he tells me I should change ALSO the valve cover gasket. Is it easy to change the valve cover gasket while changing the intake manifold gasket?
How much additional money should I expect to pay?
Should I just have to pay the cost of the valve cover gasket? Or also some labor cost to putting in?
About how much more labor to put it in?
If I don't change the valve cover gasket now, about how much much will it cost to change in the future? I'm not loosing much oil. It is seeping a bit, I think. I don't mind checking the oil and refilling if needed (good or bad idea?). Please advice. Thank you!
have the same problem?
