Do I need a new intake manifold


Asked by Aug 09, 2017 at 01:36 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My mechanic noticed that there was a worn
linkage from actuator to tuning valve, and said this
was not repairable without a brand new intake
manifold.  Is this true and how much will it
probably cost if it is?

Yes it may need to be replaced if it's worn.. I would say the job should be 1,200 to 1,600 dollars...

There's no way for a cheaper repair? How much of that is labor and how much is the parts?

Different shops will charge you a different price, this is only an estimate call or contact the shop for the price on your car...
