    Cracked Manifold...

    Having finally gotten the heatshield off I've found that the ongoing ticking noise is coming from here:



    this is on a Zafira A z18xe engine

    what sort of fix can I do or what would a suitable replacement cost me?

    this happened to my z18xe manifold , they can be welded with the right gear , either that or swap it for a manifold off , i think an x18xe1 and get rid of the cat .
    to buy another like that i think they are quite a bit of money

    It seems like a good reason to buy a nice new SS manifold /\ lol

    To be fair the one at Griffin Autos sounds ideal
    stainless steel would be nice but also out of my price range at the moment given the engine is putting up a bit of a fight recently.
    Hats off to Astra20t for bailing me out so quickly

    I love this club
