    Default Price for Possible Gasket and Manifold Repair = please

    got my petrol 2.2 direct 2006 ( 56 ) Design in the garage on Thursday morning ...

    I told the mechanic i suspect an exhaust gasket problem as when i start up from cold it put puts or hisses in the same rhythm as a train over tracks .

    And also when i accellerate it sounds like a boy racer exhaust or a world war 2 bomber plane drone ...

    But when car is hot , it all settles down ..

    and he said it could be something to do with the manifold as well ..

    Please can anyone give me a " guesstimate " on what i will be charged for the repair or an average or quote anyone else has had ..

    Thank you for any replies ..

    A gasket will only be a few quid and should be well under an hour to fit in theory, remove the covers/heatshields if there are any, unbolt the manifold, jiggle it out enough to change the gasket and put it back together. I've probably missed something out there but you get the idea, it shouldn't be a long job. Metal expands when it's hot, might explain why the noise isn't there all the time.

    It could also be as simple as a loose manifold stud or even a cracked manifold mate.
