I own a Nissan Altima 01 with 30k miles on it.
Recently, I noticed some issue with the car when it started jumping between the gears and pulling forward when I pushed accelerator a little bit.
Went to check at local auto store, they said it was an intake gasket leaking. The part for that costs only 10-12 dollars but labor is around 600 dollars. I could not believe it? Is that true? Can it be so cumbersome just to change a gasket?
Secondly, I want to know if it is pretty unusual for a car with that low mileage to have a gasket leak (damage) just within 30k miles (~5 yrs old).
thanks in advance,
