Judging by your car, I presume this is a 4kq manifold. They all look
"cracked." It's probably no big deal at all, I don't think the cracks
go all the way through.
The "WD-40 thing" is to spray it inside with the outside reasonably
clean and dry. if the crack goes through, the WD-40 should wick through
it and show up on the outside. At least, that's what I read "here" a
year or two ago...
