Intake gasket and exhaust manifold leaking....
I have a 1996 impala with 147,000 miles. Mostly stock, msd distributor, corvette starter, and flow master exhaust. I failed my emissions test here in md and I took my car to the delear to see why.... Here are my problems
1. Intake gasket leaking (est-$650)
2. Exhaust manifold gaskets are leaking (3 bolts broken off in cylinder heads est-$950).
He stated that it might be a little more if one of the cylinders need to be replaced.
Are these prices generally reasonable? Is it worth fixing or should I buy a new engine? Any shops in md that do good work you
Would refer me to?
Any and all help is greatly appreciated, I want to keep the car till I die and want it back in tip top condition. Budget is really $950-1300, 1500$ max
