Dealer confirmed intake manifold explosion

User Diman2023 of the Drive2 autoblog platform described a problem that arose with his Vesta: the intake manifold exploded on the car. According to the owner of the car, the situation is not isolated: five such cases have been recorded recently.

«At the beginning of the month I started starting the car from autostart and heard a bang from home. I go to the window, look, the car works like a tractor, I immediately turned it off with the button. I didn’t even go to check what happened there, since a few weeks before I had already seen a similar explosion in another person. In the morning I start calling the dealer and calling a tow truck. Tow truck from a dealer — this is a different story: I waited in line for 3 hours to answer the call. The car was then brought to them and they confirmed the intake manifold had blown and ordered a new part. They never said the reason. My opinion: the new December firmware of the ECU [electronic engine control unit] is to blame. Whoever reads various groups and chats has seen that this month there have already been about 5 photos of different blown up engines», — wrote the owner of Lada Vesta. This description is accompanied by a photo showing a collapsed intake manifold.
