So this past week i was getting terrible gas millage, and when the car was idling it was pretty low. Today i was cleaning stuff like the throttle body/ MAF senor. and i was gunna clean up my upper intake manifold plenum. when i was taking it off i had one bolt left but it just came off and the corner was still on the engine and the manifold came off. (pic below) anyways i can't find this part anywhere went to napa, and they couldn't find it. is that the right name?

Call Western Salvage near I76 and Federal. They should be open Sunday. I picked up an extra intake there recently. They usually go for $20.00- $25.00.

Yup, you need a new upper intake manifold. I doubt you'll find one at NAPA or any other auto parts store.
If you are looking to save bucks, look for a used one at a salvage yard.
Or, get a ported unit from http://www.wot-tech.com for a few dollars more. You'll need new gaskets also.

Dammit, Greg beat me to it.:)

Yes, you have to pull the part off the car yourself.

Im pretty lucky but they bought it for me said i couldn't do anything to it at all unless i gave some money for it. Thats why the job i have is perfect, i getta drive it around and deliver Chinese food. =P i actually make pretty good money for a 17 year old, but anyways we called dealership yesterday and it is covered on warranty so im getting a new intake manifold today
