Hi

Most unusual for the exhaust manifold to crack, normally any leaks are usually due to faulty manifold gaskets, or the down pipe sealing ring.

I am sure if you lubricate the fixing nuts well, before removal of the manifold, this is what you will find.

Good Luck !

Give me feed back if you like.

A FixYa rating would be Nice...Thanks...John.

You missed a seal on the turbo. Or the turbo is bad. Everything else you did would only make it smoke bad if you missed something.

Had exhaust manifold replaced since then my 2001 caravan bucks and blows black smoke little to no power


if you replaced the manifold because it was cracked the look for a plugged cat convertor..the cracked manifold was probably letting the exhaust escape..now it builds too much back pressure

What cause my 2000 lexus es 300 exhaust manifold to get hot


The exhaust manifold is going to get hot, this is where the engines exhaust flows through. these tempertures reach high temps,

If the manifold is glowing hot then theres a problem.

Sometimes people say the manifolds are getting to hot because they see them smoking. The reason on most of these cases is due to a leak, aleak from a bad gasket like a valve cover gasket. Engine oil leaks down on to the exhaust manifold causing smoke. make sure there are no leaks .


A few reasons that would cause exhaust manifold to heat up more than normal would be a engine thats running rich, this may be due to a leaking injector or a poor running engine. Another reason may be that you have a plugged cat. converter.

The Exhaust manifolds can reach about 600 degrees, the last thing is people hear the metal expand or contract and think there are getting to hot , this is normal.

Please let me know if there is something else i can help you with. thank you and have a good day.

Rough idle and blue smoke. change exhaust manifold because it was cracks know its missing and sputtering when i put in gear. changed egr valve before manifold.


blue smoke indicates either a bad transmission modulator valve,or a manifold leak{intake} i usually do this test for a bad or suspected bad intake manifold leak,light a cigarette and take it around the intake manifold and look for it to glow really bright for an intake leak,for an exhaust leak you can see it blow the embers away from it.just make sure there's no gas around to ignite.always make sure that a fire ext.is onsite! thank you for choosing fixya.com!

Car is smoking very badly. All of the sudden.


If the smoke is white is burning coolant, and might be a bad cylinder head gasket. If smoke is blue, is burning oil. This might be valve guide or something else. If the smoke is coming from engine compartment, fluids might spill over exhaust manifold. Hope this will help to narrow the problem.

How to tell if your turbo is functioning ok?


White smoke inducates the Vatican has elected a new Pope!

No, really... White smoke means that somehow oil has seeped into the intake manifold, which could mean a couple of things. Here are some of them::

1. the throttle body valve has failed. this tube runs in an oil port down the manifold from the head, about 4" long.

2. worn valve stem seals or guides.

3. worn/cracked head gasket leaking water/antifreeze into the combustion chamber (causing steam)

4. turbo failure.. smokes at idle

5. cracked block. fissure inside cast block. change motor.

Black smoke indicates too much fuel being introduced through 1 or more ports. This could be anything from a stuck injector to a bad ECM sensor.. even a clogged air filter (which would ****** the air, causing improper mix)

sounds like you left something out. check to see if you plugged in all the sensors and plugs, then check for any vacuum lines that were not replaced or may have been broken

Smokine exhaust.


Take the pcv valve out of the hose and check it...Shake it,if it rattles it probably is good..But a new one would not hurt.Make sure any other ventilation hoses are routed right.If it only smokes while the hose is connected,then it is pulling oil from the valve cover into the intake and burning in the combustion chambers...Check your oil level as well...Good Luck!!!
