How Much Should This Cost?

5

Asked by Jun 30, 2012 at 03:23 PM about the 1999 GMC Suburban K1500 SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently bought this vehicle from a used car dealer. Ran great for 2 days and then the Service Engine Soon light came one. The next day it was idling rough and overheating very quickly. I let Pep Boys look at it since I needed an oil change anyway and a friend of mine works there. He said the lower intake manifold was leaking coolant and not only that but he found dye in it. I don't know much about cars but I know that means someone was trying to find a leak. It would also explain why the engine was so clean when I bought it that you could eat off it. The dealer must have cleaned the leaking fluids before he sold it. He accused me of putting dye in it, trying to get it fixed free. I was told I bought it as is and I'm out of luck. I get it but that's just bad business. Anyway, I was wondering how much fixing the lower intake manifold gasket leak should cost. Sorry for such a long question. Thanks for any help someone could give me.

The cost is all in the labor and if you take it off you might be replacing other components as well, like hoses. Ask your friend at Pep Boys for an est. I calculate $280-$460 depending on the shop and location.
