Well i finaly got my manifold put on!!! Didnt do it myself as i didnt have the time or a welder to do it myself so put it into mechanic i normaly use.
thought everything would of been fine but he said it was a nightmare to do and he never wants to see the manifold again Said to maybe look at everything to make sure its ok before i drive
Got dropped off with the keys and tryed to open the bonnet but to hell if it would pop and had no one about to help me pop it. anyways i started the car and sat for a min or 2 to make sure it sounded ok.
started to set off and after i got a wee bit up the road i noticed the gas pedal was shaking under pressure the harder i reved the more it shaked. thought it was just my o2 sensor tapping my driveshaft so just decided to drive home and fix it then.
got home ok. car was driving only very slightly better than before - the shaking. opened the bonnet to see ALL my coolant had pissed out everywhere!!!! the clip he has used to hold the top hose onto the tank had ripped it and has pissed out all my coolant and since my car reads the coolant temp not the engine temp my engine could have been cooking the whole drive home!?
also found out the rattling was the TB hitting my brake reservoir
so pissed off i called the mechanic back and got told " well i did say to give it a check over, what happens when you mess about with your car"
Also he didnt bother to refit my air intake and filter properly. so after fixing that and my coolant i put a block of foam between the TB and brake reservoir and went a drive.....all i can say is Holy **** it seems miles faster!!!
I will stop going on now so here are the pics
Can see how close the TB is in this pic
