    Default Holy sh17!!!

    As most of you are aware I've been having a problem with my car recently with getting exhaust fumes in the cabin. I've also had it running very lumpy.

    My local Vx garage managed to sort the lumpy running out by replacing the fuel injector on Cyl No3, but they failed to fix the exhaust fumes problem.

    Vx got my car back on Thursday and on that afternoon they told me they were replacing the Manifold Gasket. Easy peasey I thought!!

    I've just phoned them to see when the cars going to be ready and they've told me that they need to replace the Manifold (as it's cracked) and they are replacing the turbo. All under warranty.

    Holy ****, was my reply.

    Now, I do drive this car quite hard, but any thoughts on why the manifold is cracked and why she needs a new turbo? I'm going to go and see them tomorrow to see if they've got an explanation for me.

    I'm gobsmacked and glad I'm not picking up the bill.

    LOL!!

    What are you most surprised about alex? the fact that you've somehow managed to crack the manifold and rip the turbo to pieces of that vauxhall are actually willingly going to do the work under warranty!!??

    Don't VX engines have the turbo housing cast as part of the exhaust manifold?
