Manifold problem is fixed (till today - fingers crossed, you never know wink )
Pinging problem... actually i m not 100% about this. It seems to be gone, but i havent tested it yet on specific uphills i used to get pinging noise. It was only at low revs, on uphills, and when i stepped the throttle, the engine raised revs with no problem, there was no noticable power loss, the noise was there and audible for 2-3 seconds though. And it wasnt the "bad fuel" as the dealer insisted all the time (before checking the variator) because the pinging noise was there for 8 months!!! I refilled many times from different gas stations and fuel brands since then!!
