      This would be the intake manifold. Check these various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the intake manifold (Dorman part # 615178) from around $168.00 for your vehicle.

      The most common cause of overheating is because of an external leak from a water pump or a radiator or heater hose. The way to find the leak is to wait till it is overnight cold and maybe just pour water in and see if the leak is large enough to see it simply leak out from where it has a leak. if you pour in a half gallon or more and you still see no leak its time to pressure check the system.

      Here is a short list of possible causes for overheating;

      Low coolant level
      Leaking coolant
      Improper coolant concentration (not at recommended 50 / 50 mix of anti-freeze and water)
      Clogged radiator hoses
      Clogged heater hoses
      Clogged radiator passages
      Clogged heater core
      Faulty thermostat
      Faulty water pump
      Faulty radiator cooling fans
      Faulty radiator cooling fan switch (coolant temperature sensor)
      Faulty / worn serpentine drive belt
      Faulty / worn drive belt tensioner

    On my dash a service engine soon light came on when driving?
    its not a check engine light, but it is a service engine soon, what dose it mean ? or is it the same as check engine light. And the car is running the same as before light came on.

      The check engine light is located on the dash and stays on if the computerized engine control system detects an engine performance or emissions problem.

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Did you check the charging system? Check for too much amp draw, everything off. I don't have your spec in front of me, usually around 50 ma, that is .o50 not even a tenth of an amp. If amp draw is excessive, pull/replace fuses one at a time, when you pull the fuse on the faulty circuit, the excess drain goes away.

      Check for lites left on, under the hood, interior, everywhere, best time to check that is in the dark.
