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.

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.

Tip

Installing exhaust manifold


when installing exhaust manifold. The exhaust manifold gaskets have a metal side and a fiber side. Place the metal side towards the cylinder head. Sometimes the #1 & #2 exhaust gaskets need to be trimmed a tad so that the intake gasket will seat properly. Did it on both engines I've built.

I keep having leaking exhaust from the manifold.


those also have a gasket under them just like the "head gasket", you have the 2 exhaust manifold gaskets as well. take off the manifolds and just replace those gaskets that seal the exhaust.

I have a 1994 geo tracker and replaced the exhaust manifold. The exhaust noise is still loud. are there any other gaskets in the exhaust manifold besides the manifold gasket itself


Yes, there are gaskets anywhere you see a connection in the exhaust pipe under the vehicle. Those gaskets are fairly cheap. Now if you hear a rattle that would more than likely be your heat shield on the catalyic converter (which also has gaskets).

WHERE TO LOOK FOR EXHAUST LEAK


There are several areas to check for possible exhaust leaks. i will list them below.

1. Exhaust manifold gaskets - This will be the most common area. There is a gasket that separates the block from the exhaust manifold. these gaskets can fail, thus, causing a exhaust leak at the manifold.

2. Lower manifold gasket(donut gasket) - This will be a possible leak spot as well. This small circular gasket is placed in between the upper exhaust pie and the lower side of the manifold. It basically separates the pipe from the exhaust manifold.

3. Exhaust pipe - The entire pipe can rust overtime, thus, creating small holes along the pipe structure. These holes will cause the exhaust to leak ,thus, filling the vehicle will moderate fumes and causing louder than normal engine sounds during revving.

4. Muffler - This component can also deteriorate to the point that it cannot filter out the noise. It will also cause leaks as well.

You will find the leak in one or all of the areas stated above in the list.

I have a 1994 Ford F150 extended cab 5.0 v8. I need to change the exaust manifold gaskets, how can I do this and what tools and what will I need to do?


Hi! Here are some guides on removing and replacing the exhaust gasket:
- You may need a 12mm and 14mm closed and opened wrench
- Make sure that the engine and exhaust is cooled down before performing the procedure to prevent injuries.
- The exhaust manifold may have a cover, please remove it using the wrench
- Once opened, remove the nuts of the exhaust manifold
- Support the exhaust before pulling it out for it may hit the ground
- Place the new exhaust gasket in place
- PUt the exhaust manifold and tighten the nuts evenly
Hope this helps and good luck!

How do I replace the oil pan gasket on a 2001 GMC Yukon XL?


Changing the oil pan gasket on a GMC Yukon XL is realtively simple, but does require removal of the exhaust pipe. You will need a new oil pan gasket and a new exhaust pipe flange gasket.
Put the car on ramps or jacks to access the undercarriage.
Remove the exhaust pipe by removing the 3 nuts holding the exhaust pipe flange to the exhaust manifold. These nuts often rust and prior application of penetrating oil may be required to remove them without damage. Once the pipe is unbolted, work the exhaust system loose from the hanging brackets. In most cases the entire system does not have to be removed since there is enough room to remove the pan with only the front hangers removed.
Drain the oil from the engine
Remove the 10 mm bolts holding the pan to the block.
Remove the old gasket material and scrape any remaining gasket from the block and pan.
Install the new gasket. Forma-Gasket or a similar product may be used in small quantities to "glue" the new gasket in place and prevent shifting while the pan is reattached to the block.
Reinsall the 10 mm bolts in a cross pattern to ensure the gasket is compressed evenly. Do not overtighten the bolts.
Replace the pipe to flange gasket between the exhaust pipe and the exhaust manifold with a new part.
Reattach the exhuast pipe to the hangers.
Install the 3 bolts connecting the pipe flange to the exhaust manifold.
Fill the engine with oil.
