Hey guys hopefully someone can help me!!!!
Had a whistling/ticking noise when car starts for afew weeks now, at first i thought it was something to do with hydraulic tappets then maybe something located in the cambelt region i.e water pump etc
After removing the Heat sheild today i found to my suprise the most awful welding ive ever seen.
There is a crack between outlets 3 and 4 on the manifold which at some point in the past has been welded and by the looks of it re-welded.
Something when i got the car i never thought to check for silly me lol
Im having great trouble sourcing a new manifold.
Any help on this issue would be fantastic ive listed the engine model below any help would be greatly apprecaited guys
Engine Model: X20XEV
2.0 SRI Mk4 Astra
