Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Bolts are rusted off do i have to pull off heads or pull engine, or is there an easier solution
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
