  1. Hi all, I’m in the UK and really happy to find a community here for my UK 5 Door 1998 civic 1.4 LE with engine model D14A8. I’m trying to recommission it as it’s been in the family for over 20 years and had a load of work done jut now. My mechanic has said there is a coolant leak from the plastic intake manifold though. He said the metal coolant pipe connector had corroded and the plastic surround was crumbling. His advise was the only thing we can do is get a another intake manifold to fit or it’s game over. I can’t find one anywhere online for this engine (is it an MB2?), any ideas? Honda main dealer wants £876 for a new plastic one from Belgium but that’s too dear for me. I asked for the part number and he said it’s not company policy to share that. Are there any aftermarket ones that I can buy that would fit this engine? Or can I fit one from a different Honda engine that’s compatible? I looked on eBay without luck and tried to look at the salvage people but nothing is there and all want to sell the whole engine at £300. any ideas as I’m stuck right now. Cheers
