inlet manifold

lately my car has been idling really rough and have lost a bit of power and at times is hard to start...
got the mechanics out to have a look at it and when he puts his hand over the throttle body opening, stoping all air to the car the car should stall... well its not... and he reckons its the head gasket has a crack in it and is leaking through the inlet manifold...
he says he's seen it before but i dunno... he has written it up and ill get it fixed under warrenty hopefuly but anyone else heard of anything like this

Re: inlet manifold

Could just be a leaking inlet manifold gasket. Far more likely.
Still I wouldn't complain about a new h/g under warranty :)
