had the right side go first then 20,000 klms later the left side. manifolds were replaced in both instances
Have a very noisy ticking sound at first it would stop when engine warmed up now constant ticking waiting on ford to do something about it. on has 55,000 miles on it. Understand very expensive fix. If Ford does not fix will be last Ford I buy. I was told very frequent problem on Ford trucks.

Both exhaust manifolds have holes, rusted through. Dealer wants $1,800. Think I'll shop around first.

Ticking noise thought to be either sticky lifter or exhaust. Right side manifold warped. Need replacement.

We are replacing exhaust manifold a. Had this truck 2 months, had the ticking noise, noticed there were cracks in the exhaust manifold a. We could also smell exhaust..
