Mark, You may not need the upper manifold for sure. There was a recall last year to replace the fasteners that hold the throttle body to the upper manifold. My car developed a minor leak in that area under the TB and that recall work solved the problem. Sorry, I don't have recall info. How many miles on the car? It may also be the upper gasket that is failing.

Look up under the NHTSB site. They have all the recalls from past to present and have the option to input your VIN to see what specific recalls apply to your vehicle
