Ford Exhaust Manifold Leak Repair

It’s safe to say that noises drive me crazy. Any sort of repetitive ticking, squeaking, or clicking is literally torture for me. This week we saw a customer that shared the same affliction as me and in this case his noise came in the form of an Exhaust Leak on his Ford truck.

We see a lot of Ford Exhaust Leak Repairs throughout the year. The most common leak we see on these trucks is actually caused by faulty Exhaust Manifolds. They actually rot out and eventually crack which gives the exhaust a place to leak out. This ultimately causes a very annoying noise, power loss, lowered fuel economy, Failed Mass State Inspection, and can cause the Check Engine Light to come on. In most cases it’s a simple fix, but on some of them the parts and bolts become rotted and break when coming out.

Ford Exhaust Manifold Replacement

First we need to remove them. It’s a pretty tight space so the Technician(s) just needs to make sure that everything in the way is properly removed and secured out of the way.

It would appear that the technician is laying down on the job, but it's just a tough space and this is really the only way he can gain access to a few of the bolts

Once the manifolds were removed the Technician was able to inspect them a little easier. As you can see there is a small crack in the manifold that was the source of the exhaust leak and noise.

As you can see the Ford Exhaust Manifolds are really in a tight spot. With just a little buttoning up and reattaching the remainder of the exhaust this customer will be back on the road in no time.

As you can see, the exhaust manifold is in a really tight space.

This repair takes a little bit of time and has to be done by Trained Technicians. Fortunately for this customer he had an Aftermarket Warranty that he purchased when he bought the truck and they paid the bill for him. We work with most Aftermarket Warranty companies on the market today and back most repairs with our 2 year, 24,000 mile Nationwide warranty and 12 month roadside assistance.

I had the best experience today with precision auto repair. They worked with my warrantee contractor and achieved the best results for me. Thank you much. You now have another loyal customer. Highly recommend.
