    Angry Good old inlet manifold

    Well at work last night and my car started put put putting like a tractor removed the plastic cover off the top of the engine and down were the swirl valve is was full of oil and the swirl flap on the air filter side is jumping up and down when you rev and sucking in air !!!

    Just replaced my clutch at a cost of a grand on the 5th feb this is one damn expensive month !!!!

    can anyone give me a full parts list and prices as the parts list av seen on here looks shorter than the one my mate got when he had his done on warranty !!

    On here list consists of 4 gaskets , inlet manifold, swirl flap actuator and a swirl flap connecting rod ?

    Do you have to also change the egr valve as i done mine under a year ago ?

    Thanks in advance
    Andy

    Not to put you off, just warning you, that the 4 hours fitting was myself and an experienced mechanic working together to change the manifold. Not sure how long a garage would take with one person working on it.
