Depending on the cause and location of the leak it can cost between $150 and $1,000 to repair a leak in your vacuum system. While it can be tempting to put off repairs when they don’t cause driveability issues, you should promptly take your car to a mechanic to determine the cause of the leak and before risking engine failure.
Here are some common causes of vacuum leaks:
  • Rip or cracked intake snorkel
  • Warped manifold gasket
  • Brittle plastic and rubber vacuum hoses and lines
  • Stuck EGR valve
Once your mechanic has determined the cause of the vacuum leak in your car, you can receive an accurate estimate of repair costs. While car repairs can be expensive, your car insurance doesn’t have to be.
