I just discovered I have a crack in the exhaust manifold not to big , but it is leaking. Not sure if I should try to repair it or replace it. Have heard of JB weld repairs. I want to get everything fixed up for the Vermont trip in Oct. are you going?

Happy 30th Anniversary to the Volvo Club of America!

Indeed, I would be there if my wife would allow me to purchase the Classic Volvo of her dreams - 1800ES, Glacial Blue over Saddle, 4-speed auto, R134a AC, custom-fit puppy pad, etc.

JB Weld? Much better to remove the manifold and allow a pro machine shop to repair the crack, clean up the ports and square the mating surfaces. Air/vacuum leaks tend to confuse the FI control system.

On your Vermont trip - where do you leave the Canadian border?
