$915.00 . . . . Bargain!  ;)

Now you know why most people just let them be noisy.  ;D

Try Vlade at Arese, you' be surprised at some of the prices he can manage on certain items, can't hurt.

And yes, "what could possibly go wrong" . . . . I believe these were the exact words uttered by the captain of the Titanic moments after giving the order "Flank Speed Ahead!"   ::)

So it seems like we found the other source of the problem besides the water pump...

Mechanic and Vlad from Arese Spares have never heard of one of these going at 60,000km...

So apparently the seals on the manifold, the manifold itself is cracked just canít see in that photo.

In addition to the water pump going... starting to think I am cursed with euro cars

Unfortunate, for sure.

Any idea what promulgated the cracking? Has the car been hit or the engine out (misapplied forces for example).

No idea,

Mechanic never seen it happen on such a young engine, no previous hits either.

Iím the 2nd owner but no records of anything to cause the damage.

My father told me to call Alfa head office and discuss the abnormality but I figured itís going to be a waste of time, no warranty means Alfa probably couldnít care less.

Iím more worried that Iíve got a lemon and that this is just a warning of things to come now, itís left a bad taste in my mouth personally

Well without Vlad from Arese helping me out with parts I would probably be put of pocket at least 2K in parts alone...

Mind you parts and labour atm Iím heading close to 2K anyways

Iíd be wanting to discern why it was ďgoingĒ

Has the mechanic suggested any failure analysis?
(The PO broke it when removing it to check or over tighten something else attached it) ;)

Any chance of a better picture of the crack, I have this model so interested to know any potential issues.  I canít for the life of me think why a static piece of plastic like an inlet manifold would crack unless something attached to it was loose, or buggered around with.

Prying against the manifold to fit a belt or release a tensioner, could be one source of damage. Mis-supporting the motor when removing or refitting a gearbox, another.

There will surely be witness marks if itís not just a gorilla with a spanner.
