Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

Truck is running very well but I believe it may have lost the gasket between the manifold and the exhaust. It sounds aweful on cold start ups

2000 gmc 3500hd 7.4 after the trucks gets up to temp it starts back firing and sounds like a spark plug blew out .


Simply a 'spitball' guess, but it almost sounds like it could possibly be an exhaust leak either where the manifold mounts to the head or a cracked exhaust manifold.

I'm not sure if that engine came from the factory with exhaust manifold gaskets or not.

Crack or gap is closed while cold or cooler and opens up the crack or gap as the manifold get warmer or hot.

Hope this helps.

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)

My geo metro egine have a ticking sound


If you have adjusted your valves and the ticking persists then try changing your exhaust manifold gasket. A leaking exhaust manifold gasket will often make a loud ticking sound.

I got a 1999 gmc sonoma 4.3 v6 vortec I have strong exhaust fumes coming threw the a/c vents while the a/ is on


You have a leak in the exhaust system. Have it looked at soon. You don't want to be breathing carbon monoxide while driving. If you hear a "ticking" sound while the engine is running (more predominant with a cold engine) it's most likely an exhaust manifold leak, either a bad gasket, broken stud or cracked manifold. Other possible causes could be the "donut" gaskets that seal the Y pipe to the exhaust manifolds, the Y pipe to catalytic converter gasket (if equipped).
