Default I found out today

So today while talking to me step-father, I was asking him what went wrong with the car while it was in his posession. He mentioned "something with the intake on the thing went bad or something... i dunno... like... really expensive...". I said "you mean the upper intake failed?" "yea thats it"

So does this mean im in the clear for upper intake faliure?

By the looks of it, your engine is nude. So you should be able to quickly read it on the top of the UIM itself. Specific details I'm not too familiar with.

that will only tell when the intake was made, not when it was installed.
