    Check engine light came on at 51,000 miles, said cylinder 1 was
    misfiring. Diagnosed as intake manifold gasket failure.
    Picked up the car today, said they had to replace the "Micro V Belt"
    also. What is a micro V belt?

    Bill was:

    Saturn I M Gasket Kit = $72.64
    Micro V Belt = $25.80
    4.6 hours x $65/hr = $299.00
    [email protected]% = $26.23
    Total = $423.67

    Is this a fair price?

    Micro V is a Serpentine Belt, you know all those little V's. I dont know
    why they just didnt just say Serpentine Belt or Accessory Belt... (Who
    the heck says micro v?) I dont think I have a labor time guide for
    Saturns but just slightly over a dollar a minute for labor is fair.

    Wow, your 2001 SL must be on the same schedual as mine. My intake manifold
    gasket went right at 50000 miles. Mine cost about $364, but I didn't need
    a new belt. And now only a couple of months later my head gasket is
    leaking oil. The quote for the repair is $944.65, and of course if the
    head is warped or crack the cost goes up from there. The service manager
    was so non-chalant about it I was just dumbfounded. "So when do you want
    to schedual that" Har, Har, Har!!!
    Well needless to say that these two failures along with the transaxle
    seal replacement last summer made the decision to get rid of the SL an
    easy. Got myself a nice new, oops, better not say, blah blah might start
    foaming at the mouth. Good Luck and see you guys later. Zoom-Zoom
