    Ooooohh Good luck mate, I hope youve got a good relationship with your dealer as they'll more than likely put it down to the Pre cat

    How did you find that out mate, and what do you mean "Very small Leak"

    My mates a mechanic and was having a look over it when he noticed the leak. He's seen them before as he works for Hartwells. His local garage wont touch it though so ive got it booked in somewhere else where i know one of the mechanics.

    If only i had the cash! Just forked out for our deposit for the wedding and 2 new rear tyres.

    Shes in a family run Vauxhall garage at the moment as i thought they might appreciate the work better than my local hartwells. Shes being checked over tommorrow so fingers crossed that i can have my new turbo under warrenty!

    Did u honestly expect me to know ???? - it could be an Oil or Air leak at the end of the day. You can obviously only tell Airleaks fairly soon after starting the car, as the manifold will quickly heat up and you wont be able to get close enough to check. You may well hear a bad air leak aswell so it could be either or really
