Probably a blown head gasket. Don't drive it far sounding like this as it can damage the head itself. The solution is to replace the head gaskets. In all likelyhood the heads will need skimming to restore a good sealing face. This is also a good time to check things like lifters and camshaft. Use aftermarket head bolts as the factory bolts rely on yield point to set the torque and are notorious for not holding down properly.

I have a 2003 nissan altima and it has a bad sound coming from my manifold I wanted to know if it is cracked or a bad gasket how can i repair


You're actually going to have to have someone look at it if you can't see a crack. Ot might just be as simple as a bad gasket. Nissans' aren;t noted for manifold problems (unless you really overheated it) I suspect gasket where exhaust pipe meets manifold.

1998 ford escort started losing power on acceleration sometime, but all the time there is a clicking sound that began at same time


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE EXHAUST IS BLOWING AT THE MANIFOLD. THERE MAY BE A CRACK IN THE MANIFOLD ITSELF, OR THE MANIFOLD GASKET MAY HAVE FAILED. THE SOUND OF THE AIR ESCAPING UNDER PRESSURE CAN OFTEN BE MISTAKEN FOR A CLICKING NOISE.

Looking at change out the coolant sensor car is over heating but first it will blow cool air before it over heats when it finals blows hot air and the therostate opens up it goes back down we have changed...


It sounds like you have a head gasket leak or an intake manifold antifreese leak. Have a coolant system pressure test performed to determine where & the extent of the leak. The 2003 impala is noted for this problem. Good luck!

Manifold is going bad car is really loud


Are you asking a question or just making a declarative statement?
Unlikely you have holes eroding in the manifold, check your gaskets & donuts first. If you replace the manifold gasket use new bolts when you put it back together with anti-seize compound and use a flat edge to check flatness of both faces.
I once had a corroded oxygen sensor that sounded like a bad donut gasket. It got really noisy all of a sudden and I noticed one part of the oxygen sensor hanging by its wire and the other stuck in the manifold with a hole blowing exhaust where the sensor used to be. Pretty obvious what needed fixin' after that.
