In my experience there is no "easy" solution aside from paying someone else to do it. Whether you do it yourself or other wise, it's better to have the parts off the engine. The honest answer is, if you remove the exhaust manifolds from the engine, you may want to go ahead and save yourself alot of headaches and purchase new ones. Generally they are relatively inexpensive, $120-$140 each, and should come with new gaskets and related hardware. Otherwise you could try drilling and tapping for new studs. I hope this helps

First of all i would try to heat the bolts with accetiline before i attempt any thing else if taht fails then i would not remove the engine but remove the exhaust manifold and work on it on the bench or would take it to a machine shop and have new studds installed

Camshaft & Crankshaft Timing Marks On
1995-97 Kia 2.0L VIN 1 Engines

The AERA Technical Department offers the following information regarding camshaft and crankshaft timing for 1995-97 Kia 2.0L VIN 1 engines. The camshaft sprocket/pulley for this engine has four markings that may be considered for cam/crank timing. Only one of those markings is correct.

This cam sprocket Part # 0K97212425 has multiple markings to allow use in more than one engine. The correct marking for this engine is the #2 as shown in Figure 1 below.
If the sprocket was removed from the camshaft for correct installation note the 12? o?clock positioning of the cam dowel pin. To secure the sprocket on the cam, hold the cam in position with the use of a nut driver and tighten the lock bolt to 42 ft/lbs (56 Nm) as shown in Figures 2 & 3 below.

Replace exhaust manifold


which engine.? 8v or 16v.

the manifold unbolts, see the studs there. they are nuts acutally

the trail pipe flange , has.

on the 8v, engine has 3 nuts and washers.

the 16v engine runs a donut ring, and 2 long spring loaded bolts.

that love to seize.

it just unbolts but rust is devil we all deal with.

the 16v has 2 bolt flange on top that holds up the AIR PIPE>. huge.

here is the torque page.

the 16v torques work too, on this full fsm under engine.

Head gasket or lower intake gasket on 98 Blazer


this does sound like a head problem (hopefully just the gasket). pulling the head with the exhaust manifold attached is possible but tricky and difficult. risking the bolt and drilling it out if it snaps would be alot easier. I would strongly suggest having the head checked while its off (so you dont rebuild to find that you wasted time and money on a bad head)

Difficulty changing a exhaust manifold 04 F150?


Alot depends on where you live. Here in the southern states, I don't have many problems with bolts on these year model truck. I did head gaskets on a 2000 F150 from Ohio, and had to cut every exhaust stud. If your not in the rust belt, you should be fine. I recomend pulling the front weel and fenderwell liner to get to the manifold. It's the only good way to get to them.

My 97 dodge intrepid 3.5 liter engine is smoking out the front of the engine not the exhaust. Can you tell me what is the Rear Main Seal and what is the Head Gasket and where to look for the two? If I knew...


The rear main seal is between the engine and transmission. Head gaskets are what seals the block and head of the motor. If the smoke is sweet smelling I would assume it to be a misting coolant leak from a small hole in the radiator. Even though that car is front wheel drive it's mounted longitudinally. Hope this helps.

Can't reach bolts on starter tried using ratchet and extension but it's to big i can't use it. I have the Ford F150 1997


I'm guessing it has the 4.6 motor they are very tough to get to
one method is move exhaust out of the way the problem with that is the exhaust manifold bolt will strip or is rusted. and this is a bigger problem to deal with.
The best way i found is soak it with pb blaster and use a 1/4 in short to med extension and and the same with sockets until you find the right combination using a swivel head socket. the hardest is the top

I have a '97 F150 4.6 and it uses oil. I can't see it or smell it but the oil level drops between changes. Where is it going? Do I need to change oil types? I currently use 10W-30, every 3,000 miles...


use slightly thicker oil,it unfortunately may be burning oil,sometimes high oil cpnsumtion is due to engine wear,especially if its not leaking if it uses under 1 litre,between services thats ok but if its using 1.5 to 2 litres thats an issue

Exhaust replacement & Rear Brakes


I can't see a problem with the converter, but if your in one of the states that does emissions testing it might be a problem as it most likely would leak where its clamped. The best thing to do is get it all on and try to find someone to weld it for you. As far as axel seals, if there bolt in axels unbolt pull out and use the end of the axel to pop out the old seal, and just tap the new seal in carefuly. seals around $ 10.00. Break kleen will clean up break shoes and drumb. Need more help just ask.
