Hi there, thanks for writing in.

Unfortunately yes, it is necessary to replace the entire intake manifold, because the internal parts are not available separately, plus the manifolds are very difficult and time consuming to properly disassemble and reassemble. You can get a quote for intake manifold replacement from a qualified technician that will come to your home or office to perform the work.
