    Default 2004 cdti 150 - Inlet Manifold crack

    My vehicle over the past week developed a problem in that it struggled to pull in 1st gear - basically revs would slowly pick up @ walking pace until around 2.5rpm when the turbo would kick in.

    Reading on here it sounded possibly egr jobby but after taking it into local garage turns out theres a crack in the inlet manifold and new one required. Vauxhall @ Leadenham nr Grantham quoted £540 cash all in.

    Is this reasonable cost?

    cheers

    Yes and tbh it was either that crack or the swirl valve problem. £540 sounds good tbh compared to what some have been quoted.

    Thats an excellent quote, time allowance for the replacement is 5 hrs. Labour rate must be below £70 an hour.

    Thanks for replys, I did notice that the rod which sits on top of the manifold had come completely off and looked rather oily - would that automatical mean replacing the whole inlet manifold?

    In my recent experience of getting a new inlet manifold on my 54 plate 1.9 CDTi 150, I would get them to check the swirl rod actuator that is underneath the inlet manifold while they have it removed.

    I was told (don't know if it was true or not) that when the swirl rod was detached, the actuator will have been trying to move the flaps constantly as the ECU will have not been getting back the readings regarding air flow that it needed and therefore could have burnt out the swirl rod actuator.

    Just something to maybe check as it supposedly turned out that I needed a new one also.

    If any of the description regarding the functioning procedure is incorrect, can somone please state correct procedure.

    HTH.

    When I was having some previously documented trouble with my car and I told the Vx stealers that the inlet manifold had been changed because the swirl bar had became detached from the inlet manifold, the Service Manager there told me that it did not always warrant replacement and in some cases, the swirl bar can be fixed and re-attached.

    I was under the same impression as you initially Dan, but after hearing this and reading a How2 for cheap swirl bar fix, I'm not too sure now.

    If the inlet manifold is cracked Toodle, you'll defo need a new one though.

    Having already had a new inlet manifold myself only 3 months ago, I feel your pain!

    Mine went a week or two before I was going away on holiday and only got the car back 2 days before we were due to drive to the airport in it!!!

    Any time is not a good time to get a big bill like that. I paid £700 but had a new inlet manifold, new swirl bar actuator and new injector for that price.

    The price you were given seems reasonable as I am told it can be a right **** of a job to do.

    Hope everything works out well for you!
