2004 1.6 ford focus. New exhaust manifold + gasket but still leaking. quick fix? Sign In

i have just had a new exhaust manifold and manifold gasket fitted. however there is still a leak next to the cylinder head. i suspect that a small part of the head has been eaten away and ideally needs skimmed but i'm a student and i cant afford the labor costs. is there any possibility of a cheap fix? like a thicker sealant or gasket??

any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks

You could always try using a double gasket. Make sure your manifold isn't cracked.
