Q: Exhaust manifold bolt broken at left cylinder head on 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I was told by Chevy dealership mechanic it would be $2000 to repair. I cannot hear a rattling from a broken bolt and is this a fair price
And how long can I drive with this issue since I do not have $2000 saved yet. What are the suggestions and answers. Confused

Check around, ask some friends or co-workers about the old school mechanic in the area that can extract this bolt for you!! It can be done and replaced with another. It will probably need a new manifold gasket or even a manifold but 2k is too much!
I did, no such luck. That is why I am trying through this site. Any help would be appreciated
