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

    Make sure the manifold is flat and use Fel-Pro exhaust gaskets. Mine had 2 broken bolts leading to a exhaust leak. Also ground manifold for flat seal. Worked perfect bolts came right out after manifold was out of the way.
