1997 Mercury cougar Intake failure

On 5/11/2004 my 1997 cougar 4.6 intake manifold formed a crack in the front of the manifold. I tried to get a new replacement and was informed the manifold was $586 just the part. I left disbelief of the cost of the part . In a conversation with a work associate who had a 97 thunderbird 4.6 told me of the recall back in 99 for which I never received any recall of my car.

I went online to mercury recalls and it said vin number w was recalled my vin was a G not on the recall but it looks like it should have been. It is the same plastic manifold and cracking in the same place. It just doesn't seem like the right thing to do to an obvious more wide spread problem . Thanks for listening Dave Schaffer
