Ticking noise comimg from the exhaust manifold area. I replace the gasket and bolts and that solved my problem.

broken bolts..every mechanic steered me to lifters...I got under the truck, there are missing and broken bolts. What a nightmare. Trying now to find how many bolts are needed. Unfortunately, I have to drive it to the dealership to get the gasket and bolts and I have no idea how much damage this may cause. Ive been driving it for a month with that awful motorscooter "tick". The engine sounds sooooooooooo loud.
