Question about 1988 Ford F 150
Was the question answered? is this a cast iron manifold? the reason for the leak is the bolt falling out allowed the manifold to warp, once warped just putting the bolt back in won't stop the leak, the factory doesn't use gaskets on the manifold in most cases unless they are factory tubular exhaust, you can pull the manifold and have a machine shop true the mating surface if it isn't cracked, you can also get an aftermarket gasket, but that is a short term fix and the gasket will blow out in a monthe or so.
