Here is my situation; I have 98' Ford Expedition 4.6L 4X4 with about 115,000 miles on it now. I recently brought in to Ford dealer for service due to exhaust leak. Upon checking I was told passenger side manifold is cracked and needs to be replaced and they gave me two estimates.
First- If manifold falls off it will cost about $2,300
Second- Due to lots rust under the trucks body they might have to remove engine to replace it. Cost would be about $6,000
That’s a lot of money for something with over 100K miles on it. Is the dealers cost too high? Should I bring to a local automotive shop and get another estimate? Or is it time to look for another vehicle, what are my options here?
Thank You, to all who respond
have the same problem?
