Hi, having recently had my Zafira serviced the garage told me that there is a slight blow coming from he exhaust manifold. I notice the noise when i first start the car in the morning when the engine is cold but the noise goes away when the car has warmed up. I'm lost as to the cost of repairing this is and is it something that will need immediate attention. Cheers

thereis a problem with exhaust manifold gaskets failing on ecotecs & they usually sound worse when cold , only problem is that half the time when you undo the manifold studs they like to snap off at the thermostat end for some reason.
