I took my 2003 Focus SE Wagon in because I was concerned about a change in the noise of the engine. My mechanic told me the air intake manifold is cracked!
Cost of repair $800. Ouch.
Is there anyway of patching it????
I'm not sure about patching it, although it is plastic so I dont see why not. But if you cant Central Florida Motorsports has a after market one they make that is 150.00 more than they want to charge you for that stock one at the shop you took it to. Food for thought.
dude, the IM is an extremely easy install. I took mine off a while back to port it out and put it back on. Total removal and re-install is about 1 hr!!!! just go to the junkyard and pic one up for 20 bucks!!!
Thank-you so much for the offer of the intake manifold. Someone here in canada from focuscanada.ca had one dropped off at my house.
I have read that I need to buy new gaskets. I called around and only the dealer carries them here.
