What are the tell tale signs of a cracked manifold?
I put about 200 miles the first couple of days already, some at almost red line (8K) at third gear which seems to be the power spot of my f355.Dude...you just got that beauty. Are you fearing cracks already?
Yes Stile, I am just a bit over cautious. I checked it out with my neighbor and found out it was the radiator fan blowing the warm air. Although I am wondering why the other one is not blowing as powerful, so I will check out the other side.The F355 that I worked on with one cracked manifold sounded like the muffler had fallen off. Nothing subtle about it, just plain obnoxious. Is yours louder than when you got it? -Steve
Thanks for the vote of confidence Saint. Yes my avatar is a blond which I shall be changing very soon to my own red headDon't be too down...Everything will turn out fine. I've had the "slow down 5-8" light illuminate twice on mine. Scared the bejesus out of me both times. Turned out to be moisture related. A heat sensor for the cat is under the driver side rear wheel well and highly exposed. First time was when I washed the car, second time was when I rinsed the wheel well. No more hoses going near that car. She wants and gets sponge baths. I'm glad mines not a red head. I understand there hairs are very fine (RCH). Brunette for me. We just celebrated our 1 month aniversary. Ohh...Just realized your avatar shows yours as a Blonde. The check Engine light just means she wants more attention. Buy her some nice jewelry like a new shift knob, brushed aluminum gage rings, or some drilled pedals. That ought to do it.
