I couldn't do the work myself because I just had knee surgery so I had to take mine to a shop. They charged me 300 to replace the intake. You will need intake, intake gasket, thermostat and gasket a new heater hose and new radiator fluid to do the job rite. If you a good with tools and have the time you can do the repair yourself. Plus while you have the intake off it would be a good time to clean the engine up and maybe replace the valve cover gaskets if they leak a little. Good luck.
I was losing anti freeze when i first got my car , found out the heater hose wasn't fully on. So i put it back on a month or two ago. Last night car wasn't warmed up i was ina rush antifreeze shot all over my windshield. I clamped it back on and it stills holding. When i get home from work I'm gonna see how bad it is. I was gonna try and pipe it and seal it and clamp the hose on to it don't know if it'll work but it seems like its worth a try. If not ill get the new intake. Im gonna take a picture as well, its a decent amount that the hose is connected too
