Not sure what the mileage was when you had the manifold replaced the first time. My thought is if you had needed it done they's have jumped at the chance to do it. If they say you don't need it again...

Don't forget the jack stands.

Craftsman stuff is not of the quality it once was. They used to have their tools made by Crescent in the USA. Now all their tools come from the tool factory in China.
