Hey i was wondering if anyone had some tips of replacing my exhaust manifold gasket? a DIY would be greatly appreciated. thanks
I would really make sure you need a block/ex. mani gasket before replacing it, as it's a pain in the ass. Not to mention, they don't fail very often. The ex mani/turbo gasket is prone to failure and bolts loosening.
Did you Seafoam to confirm where the leak is coming from?
well my car has a fart kinda sound, i thought at first it was a downpipe gasket, i replaced it and it got a little quitter, but the fart noise was still there, and its right in the region of the mani/head gasket, i cant say its from there 100% but sounds like it, idk where else it would be
yea im going to do turbo to mani gasket first, test it out, if that solves the problem then thats that and im a happy man. ill be checking on here every 30 mins -1hr for advice and what not, gunna go get started on the car now, thx for all your help thus far guys.
ok boys i found the issue.... my manifold is crack into two pieces. more towards the passenger side. its cracked from the top to the bottom. the crack is right on 2 or 3 bolts, didnt get a better look. i just saw a huge crack, crawled out under my car and straight up just got out. thx for the help guys.
