My 2003 crown vic is making a loud noise from the top of the motor towards the back drivers side i have already changed the exhaust manifold gasket on that side

You changed the exhaust manifold gasket. Did you take a look at the exhaust pipe, the end connections into the exhaust manifold, and the connections into the catalytic converter? There could be a small hole that that is large enough for the sound to be heard. If you don't know what to look for, have a mechanic look over the entire exhaust system for you. You may be surprised at what they may find.

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.

What part of the exhaust do you want to replace? If it is the exhaust manifold gasket, usually you don't need to touch intake, but it can be one of the most frustrating jobs if you haven't got the right tools. The right tools can twist and turn in the right places. If you haven't got the right tools , it can be easier to take both manifolds off to do job properly. More time to take intake manifold off , but less time in long run as you can access manifold/head surfaces if you haven't got right tools.

Smoke comin from top rocker cover smell like burnin oil

Could the smoke be coming from the exhaust manifold on the passenger side of the engine? When the valve cover starts to leak, it is common for the oil to leak down and burn on the outside of the exhaust manifold.
Replacing a valve cover gasket is not difficult or expensive, and it is common for BMW valve cover gaskets to get brittle and shrink and start leaking every 10 years or so. My wife's 330 needed a new valve cover gasket at 6 years.

2005 Chevy Equinox leaking oil out of exhaust manifold 107,000 miles. Just had head gasket replaced and heads rebuilt in which one was cracked. Mechanic puzzled by this because there is no smoke or odor...

Take it back and have the heads redone. Sounds like they left oil seals out or they didn't find a crack in the other head. It is very unusuall for oil to come from the exhaust and not smoke. And if the oil is coming from the exhaust gasket ,then the mechanic also didn't do his job right. This gasket should be tight, no air or anyhting else should be coming from between the engine and exhaust manifold. The never timed it is impossible, as it has to be timed to run. I would probably take it to anoher shop, explain what has gone on, get an estimate to fix it. And demand the other shop pay for it.

My 2006 Kia Optima is making a clicking sound. It has been doing this for over 6k miles now, so I don't think it's that bad. I drive fast and hard, but has not gotten worse. Help??????

I assume we are talking about a motor noise. A lot of people assume a clicking sound is a valve noise. Most of the time a loud clicking noise is actually a bad exhaust gasket. An air leak on an automotive exhaust manifold sounds like a loud tick or click. Try changing the gaskets on both sides of the exhaust manifold . This should take care of the clicking.

How to change exhaust manifold gasket

inner fenderwell and anything attached to it must be removed. you didn't say which side-driver's side e.g.r. tube needs removed before manifold , you'll need a 1 1/16 crows foot wrench. remove exaust pipe then manifold bolts then manifold .clean both surfaces to insure good seal reassemble.this is a 4 to 8 hr. job best left to a pro.

Remove the exhaust from the head (difficult)
Remove the intake manifold(difficult)
Remove everything else connected to the head(difficult)
Remove head(easy)
Install new gasket (easy)
Put it all back together
I hope this helps

Hexhaust manifold gasket

most replacements of exhaust manifold gasket are due to leaks. first you have to loosen the exhaust pipe close to the manifold to gain access to the manifold. loosen the manifold bolts and replace the gasket. unfortunately, most times you'll discover that the manifold bolts are rusted...that might make the job a bit more tedious and technical. in that case, the manifold will be accessed from up after bringing down the engine

Exhaust manifold gaskets

the ticking noise when cold is an exhaust leak.If it is the exhaust manifold gaskets,depending on the vehicle they can be very difficult to some cases you must remove many other parts even to see the manifolds.make sure when manifolds are off that they are checked for warpage,this is a simple test needing only a straight edge and feeler gague.ask your tech if he can see any broken manifold studs/bolts and if quote covers time for removing broken manifold studs/bolts,because if any are broken,this can take quite some time to extract the broken studs/bolts.
