Question: Intake manifold

My check engine light came on yesterday almost as soon as my driver side front headlight went out yesterday. My headlight was fixed but they hooked up a computer to the car to see why the check engine light went on and it said something about the intake manifold being stuck open. The garage I usually bring it to suggested I bring it to the dealership as he wasn't sure what that meant. Is he trying to get out of repairing it or is he being truthful? If I do bring it to a dealership how much is this going to cost?

Thanks for your help!

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
