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.

Cracked exhaust manifold. with engine off, on a cool motor, put a shop vac in reverse up the tail pipe. this low pressure will show any leaks in the exhaust. Use soap and water to spray the exhaust manifold. Any crack will draw air and cause the engine to run lean

Exhaust manifold

A cracked exhaust manifold should not effect your motor unless you have an exhaust driven turbo or something depending on exhaust back pressure to be there. I know where I live you can not get a vehicle with exhaust leaks infront of the passengers compartment inspected though so you may want to have the leak fixed for passenger safety.

Blowing anitfreeze out the tailpipe. I know this means a head gasket. When the engine runs, it blows antifreeze out the passenger side of the engine at the exhaust manifold by the middle cylinder. Does...

could be just head gasket and bad exhaust manifold gasket (coolant leaks past head gasket into exhaust port then leaks out of exhaust manifold gasket)
or it possible that head is cracked too
Only way to know for sure is to remove head and inspect it

What repair is needed to stop exhaust manifold leak and what do i need to do the at home repair

It depends on the leak. First of all - see if you can see any cracks on the manifold - telltale signs would be a visible crack and black residue around it from exhaust. If you see that the manifold should be replaced. - welding would be a possible alternative. If there are no cracks - check all the nuts and studs to make sure they are tight. Make sure the exhaust pipe is tight and not leaking at the connection. If everything looks tight and secure - change the exhaust manifold gasket. All of that could be done at home depending on your comfort leel with the tools and time available.

There is smoke coming from a crack in the exhaust manifold


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.
