If it is where the exhaust bolts to the manifold, that is easire to replace the bolts than if it is a manifold bolt broken off in the head. Pinpoint where the leak is and we can offer more advice.

Watch for fire and too much but spray PB on bolts/nuts that you may need to remove now - rinse off with brake cleaner as it shouldn't be flammable if worried,

way2old: It looks like the previous owner put some adhensive glue or some kind of seal where the pipe meets the bottom of the manifold. there are no broken bolts no where. it only really seaps loud when its cold or unless you give it gas.

Arggh! Just finished the whole web look for a pic of just what this looks like.......

Exhaust Manifold - Left Side
Click on image to see enlarged view

Item#: BK 6002845

Price: $81.39
tax and shipping not included

Disclaimer: The stated price may vary from the in store price and may change at anytime.


Attributes:
Product Features:Replacement Exhaust Manifold Comes w/ All Necessary Hardware For Complete Installation
Duplicates Original Equipment In Fit & Function
Contents:(1) Gasket
(1) Manifold
(3) Nuts
(3) Bolts
Material:Cast Iron


Relax - these items are available separately also. I mentions 3 bolts but I'm not seeing anything that takes those three. One glance would tell.

OK: General exhaust connections - pipe to manifold are sometimes bolts with spings not listed that I found?? that holds the flare of the first exhaust (Y pipe perhaps with converters??) or they used some kind of gasket like a donut of asbestos (some metal) that made leaking noise like an engine problem and usually got quieter when engine warmed up.

This is dominantlatly RWD - FWDs use a flex pipe that looks like braided pipe if you will - this shouldn't. Gasket is listed and cracks in manifold happen. You need to really look to find the flaw. You only have 10 seconds to use soapy water on a manifold to find a leak from a stone cold engine OR you (careful please!) might feel some air flow that doesn't belong. Look with dental auto mirrors or whatever it takes. Care as said alread - exhaust right at engine is way hot 400F plus or so, so use good judgement!

PS: Pic was just a sample from NAPA on line so I could try to see what this looks like........

It is possible the previous owner had the pipe off and did not get it seated properly. If you can loosen the exhaust pipe bolts, you may be able to center the pipe on the manifold and re seal the connection.
