Can an intake manifold gasket break within two months on a 98 lincoln town car

Asked by Feb 17, 2012 at 08:58 PM about the 1998 Lincoln Town Car Signature

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Two months ago I had the intake manifold gasket removed and replaced.  Now I smell antifreeze and it is lightly dripping into top of motor.  Tried to check it out and found that the gasket was glued and then broke.  Is that right or should I take it back and ask for warranty or is there one?

they obviously did something wrong when fitting the gasket or the gasket is defective. either way you should take the car back and have them fix it free of charge.
