    Unhappy Mega Gutted!!!

    Well.....Had a closer look at my manifold yesterday as I managed to get the car out of the rain and into my sisters garage. Took the cover off the manifold to reveal 2 problems.

    1. 9cm Crack in the top of the manifold
    2. One of bolts holding the manifold had snapped!

    Can't explain how I felt yesterday when I saw the problems (Hev will probably be able to explain!)

    My MOT is due shortly and I have MOT Insurance with Reg Vardy's. Should I wait and get it sorted on that, or get it sorted now?

    Manifold curse strikes again - sorry to hear about this. I would get it sorted asap, one less thing to worry about and also means that the engine will be back on form.

    What is this MOT insurance thing?

    Check your MOT Insurance documents to see if the manifolds covered.

    If your not sure phone them up now and ask...no point waiting till mot time, cos if there are any problems it'll take longer to fix..and the car will be off the road cos of no mot.
