I have been smelling a burning smell from under the hood each time I drive my car. I have even seen smoke emitting from the grill Looking under the hood I can see oil is leaking. How much would it cost to repair/replace the valve cover gasket? I believe the intake manifold gasket would need to be replaced as well. What is the total estimated cost of parts and labor?

First of all thank you so much for your donation. The factory valve cover gasket is 77.38ea plus tax I can't give you a exact number tax rate's vary so much from state county city etc. Auto zone has them one for 56ea and one for 41ea. Labor is 1.7hrs for one and 2.1hrs to replace both times 80-100 per hr depending on shop rate. Also yes you have to remove the intake to replace them.
