You can have your mechanic perform a "smoke test" to verify it is indeed one or all of the upper intake gaskets that are leaking. You can remove the upper intake and replace yourself, there are 6 all together and can be bought for $10. Do you have a misfire? Check engine light on?

Yes do have a Lil miss fire
