Hello All, Just went to get my boat ready for summer and found that I have a crack in my manifold. Transmission oil cooler hoses broke. I would be very surprised if there ain't any more damage to your Engine. Too bad your arriving here is under such unhappy circumstances. After all was said and done, I put everything back together, reconnected the two oxygen sensors, and the car is now as quiet as a lamb. Asked around to have the manifold welded every shop refused to do so apparently because cast metal cannot be welded together or something of that sort leaving me no choice but to buy a new one.
You should have the repair done as soon as you notice the problem. Since the car has only 70,200 miles, the technician is going to check up on Monday to see if the cracked exhaust manifold can be repaired for free. Are you running in salt water? Though it is increasingly being replaced by plastics and various composites that typically are stronger, lighter, and cheaper, the light alloy is still the number-one choice for high-performance intake manifolds. I live in Washington state, and the temps were oh so cold this last winter. The high deposition rate creates an extremely narrow heat affected zone— a feature suitable for all weldable cast irons requiring post weld machining.
One website indicated it was a factory flaw with a low section in the seam of the manifold in which water sits after driving through puddles. The complaints are organized into groups with data published by vehicle, vehicle component, and specific problem. I used to love honda, now i'll never buy honda again. Note: Honda Canada does this on a case by case basis. In some cars, it may take a lot less time, while others are going to take more. First, they are much more likely to crack, especially in highly stressed areas such as their mounting ears.
So now I have to see if Dublin Honda, my local dealer, will replace it under warranty. Eventually the engine died and had to be replaced. Not all mechanics will allow this, and dealers most definitely will not, but if you can find a mechanic who will let you buy your own parts, you may be able to save a decent amount of money. This is what I was told it would cost to fix this problem. The emissions test people didn't notice the crack or, if they did, they didn't say anything , and the car passed with flying colors. Check your oil though and make sure there isn't water in the bores.
I bought the car at the same dealership I've been having it serviced at since it was purchased there. The ship is a 93 Maristar 225 centre engined Ford Small Block 5. My question is this, must I buy a new manifold or can I take it off and have it welded? If enough complaints come in they could extend the warranty on the 2002 year also. After reading about it online I looked for cracks and there they were. Who would beleive an exhaust manifold on a honda could have so many problems with cracking. I believe the dealership will now find any excuse to get me to buy another vehicle from them. A cracked exhaust manifold does not put water in the oil directly, a cracked inlet manifold will though.
Do you have another pic? I'm on my 2nd motor and 2nd exhaust manifold and the problems are starting again. Well, I've found it to be very inconvenient not to be able to measure a driving distance, from point A to point B. The ship is a 93 Maristar 225 centre engined Ford Small Block 5. For those trying to do the repairs on their own, replacing an entire section is usually the easiest way to go. No one else has ever touched it.
Do they rupture internally, or is the crack to the outer none engine side side sufficient to ruin them. If it seems like too much work for you to handle on your own or you are just unsure if you want to perform this kind of repair for yourself, you can always buy the parts you need for and take them to your mechanic for the repair. No core plugs popped out so I was optimistic Then noticed hairline cracks all over the manifolds. The crack was X-shaped -- along and perpendicular to the seam between cylinders 2 and 3. The crack is open but it is very apparent.
This happens because the combustion chambers exhaust begins leaking out in the wrong direction and it starts to flow directly into the intake manifold. I drilled the corresponding hole in the exhaust manifold mounting flange to make it wider and accommodate the bigger bolt. Don't overtighten the bolts or nuts, either -- you can strip some threads. While this is a fairly simple repair to perform, it does take some tools that not every may have. So simply running the engine will not necessarily tell you whether the manifold is cracked internally until the engine has stood with water in the manifold.
There are occasions in industry where exceedingly dirty cast iron is encountered. It can not mark Trip A or Trip B mileage from point A to point B. You should also remove the valves to do this. At some point, the manifold will need to be welded for a true fix. If you get the work done at your dealership, you can expect to pay more, but you may also get better quality parts and service. On this 2002 model, the Tachometer has never worked. Bought this car used, with 97,000 miles 2002 civic and it had the crack already.
As you will see, most manifolds can be repaired successfully when the appropriate tools and techniques are employed. But they were not available anymore for my application. I called Honda, and, as you all probably expected, they were less than helpful. Especially when you consider that it's predecessor also has a with transmission complaints. Note: the crack in my manifold is between the 4th and 3rd cylinder. Not doing that usually allows some water to stay pooled in there. Find out more about our.
