    Default inlet manifold leaking

    Looks like i need to buy my vectra a new inlet manifold, swirl pots are leaking oil and the rod has broken off number 3, repaired it last year and done 10k so been not bad. One problem after another the now, broken rear spring, so ordered eibach springs waiting on them arriving hoping tomorrow, broken wiper linkage fixed that now.

    your looking at about £600 for everything including a new egr valve mate, then its 4-5 hours labour to do the job, or if you ring midpoint garage they will charge u 8 hours labour for some reason???

    im not altogether sure but they recommend to change the egr valve when u do this and i work in a garage and all the lads have said u wud be better off changing also, you can get egr valves from euro carparts tho cheaper than the dealers and they are oe standard
