While getting an oil change my mechanic found the little nipple in the middle top of the intake manifold is gooped together.
It is sold and having no issues.
The Pilot is new to me.

should I replace the manifold or let it be?

This and your wiring post, make me believe your pilot has been wrecked and poorly fixed. The manifold is probably ok, but I would try to find a descent priced salvage yard one.

Half asleep when I posted last message.
This intake is plastic. If the nipple is glued on and no leaks, I see no reason to replace, if its holding. That's not good enough for some, so the link I provided will likely produce some good leads to find a good used one.
You can test for vacuum leaks by using a long BBQ lighter. While letting butane out of the lighter (no flame), emit gas around the repair, is there any rpm change? The rpm change may be very small. Do this with the AC off. Using a scanner may be needed to detect any small rpm change.
