Manifold leaking

My mechanic looked at my 156 last week and he said my manifold we leaking. He said what they would have to do is weld it.

Anyone know how much this is likely to set me back?

Re: Manifold leaking

is your manifold cracked ? when you say leaking could it possibly be the gasket is knackered ?..if they do weld it, its going to be the cost of their time...what is their hourly rate ?

Re: Manifold leaking

I had my manifold seperate at the exhaust flange - terrible noise. Cost about R500 to weld including gaskets in South Africa = +/- 50 Euros.

Problem was - after they had finished the gaskets kept leaking. Not a huge job - but they can't seem to stop it leaking for more than a day or 2.
