Hey everyone, got told by the mechanic my Inlet Manifold has a leak and is sucking in air.. I have no clue how to fix this on my own so I will most likely take it in again, anyone have any idea how much it will cost? Cheers, Zane.

maybe reset the ECU. Other things would be a new set of plugs. If one has been running lean for a while it could be causing spark breakdown
