car parts q?

Is there a website where I can find out what car parts for my car would
cost? 1998 oldsmobile …

I want to see if this estimate they gave me is right. They say, $436 for
parts for “Intake/Plenum Gaskets”. I can’t figure out whether this is
“Intake Manifold and Plenum Gaskets” or just the gaskets. The dumbass
estimate they gave me is handwritten and not detailed at all. :expressionless:

The people at an auto parts store (e.g. Pep Boys, or Napa) might be able to
help you figure it out. Or, if you’re going to get a second opinion from
another mechanic, show them this and ask them about it – then clearing this
up becomes part of what they’ll do to try to win your business.

If the quote is from the dealer, They tend to use only GM replacement parts
and they cost a lot more.

Kinda hard to figure out what they mean… some engines use a one piece
intake/plenum gasket but at that price it has to mean more than a gasket.
(It’s just a thin metal stamping most likely, or a “cardboard” like
material) so I’d say it includes the intake also

I doubt the intake is on these sites… thats kinda a dealer only thing.

Hey, do you have a job for me?

Re: car parts q?

I figure, if this type of intake manifold etc has such probs, maybe I
shouldn’t get a new part from GM but instead get some kind of
performance part from somebody else :wink:
