Want to learn more about Inlet Manifold Gasket replacements?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does an Inlet Manifold Gasket do?

The inlet manifold gasket is sandwiched in between the engine and the air intake manifold and seals the two components together. It is usually made of a metal or hard composite material and has sections cut out to reflect the area where air flows through it.

The air / fuel mixture flows from the air inlets on the manifold into the engine to be combusted in the engine's cylinder. Additionally, the inlet manifold also serves as a cooling device for the engine coolant which flows through it (and therefore also through the gasket).

What does an inlet manifold gasket replacement involve?

  • Mechanic will inspect the intake manifold and gasket for leaks.
  • Mechanic will read the car's ECU to find any fault codes.
  • Mechanic will clean the air inlet ports of the engine of dirt (like carbon).
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the inlet manifold gasket.
  • Mechanic will advise if other part need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will again inspect the unit and test drive the car.

Can I do an inlet manifold gasket replacement myself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend an inlet manifold gasket replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the symptoms of a bad intake manifold?

  • When the 'Check Engine' light is on.
  • When the engine runs at a higher temperature than usual (overheating).
  • When there is fluid underneath the car under the engine.
  • When coolant fluid is visible around the inlet manifold.
  • When the engine does not run as smooth as usual.

How long does it take to replace intake manifold gasket?

An inlet manifold gasket replacement typically takes around 1.5 hours, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take depends on a range of factors. For example, your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace an inlet manifold gasket?

Due to the extreme temperature fluctuations inside the engine (during the combustion cycles the engine cools and heats continuously) the inlet manifold gasket is especially prone to wear and should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

It is important to ensure that the gasket is in a good condition as a damaged gasket can cause engine coolant to leak out, risking overheating of the engine. Therefore, should you experience problems with the gasket, then it is important to have the manifold's gasket inspected and, if necessary, have it replaced.

Can you drive with a bad intake manifold gasket?

If you suspect there is any issue with your vehicle's intake manifold gasket or there are concerns about its age or condition, book an inspection with a professional mechanic with immediate effect, driving the vehicle may lead to further complications and damage.

How much does it cost to replace intake manifold gaskets?

Prices for an inlet manifold gasket replacement range from £120 to £150 with an average cost of £135. Ultimately, the cost of an inlet manifold gasket replacement depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement. Find out what you could save by having your inlet manifold gasket replaced by ClickMechanic by selecting your car at the top of this page!
