Exhaust manifold bolts commonly break, exhaust manifold gaskets should be replaced and replace bolts as needed.

    I heard a ticking in the engine and after closely looking at it, I discovered that the bolts had broke off. So I just carefully removed them and replaced them myself. Not a big deal.

    truck made a loud ticking sound when starting it up and then would only hear it when hitting the gas peddal...found out it was the manifold...found out there was two sides (driver and passenger side) and that it was going to cost me close to 300 bucks to fix! GREAT!!!!

    maifold bolts o noth sides are rusted and about to snap. The gasket on the LH needs to be replaced to stop exhaust leak. Valves could possibly become warped from issue
