I have gas leaking from my exhaust manifold On my yamaha ttr 90


How is the bike running? If you have gas leaking from the exhaust manifold I would think you have other things going on for that gas not to be burned up in the cylinder.

Is the gas coming from another source? for instance if it is leaking onto the engine, is it running down and around the engine but you only see it coming off the exhaust manifold? Gas getting burned off the engine when it is running?

Loss of engine power, loud whistling noise


Exhaust manifold leak? That's not common. You talking about the VVT near the manifold at the top of engine above the power steering pump? Yes indeed, AC Delco is the only one our engines love. 41-103. Obviously you have P0304, what other codes?

What cause my 2000 lexus es 300 exhaust manifold to get hot


The exhaust manifold is going to get hot, this is where the engines exhaust flows through. these tempertures reach high temps,

If the manifold is glowing hot then theres a problem.

Sometimes people say the manifolds are getting to hot because they see them smoking. The reason on most of these cases is due to a leak, aleak from a bad gasket like a valve cover gasket. Engine oil leaks down on to the exhaust manifold causing smoke. make sure there are no leaks .


A few reasons that would cause exhaust manifold to heat up more than normal would be a engine thats running rich, this may be due to a leaking injector or a poor running engine. Another reason may be that you have a plugged cat. converter.

The Exhaust manifolds can reach about 600 degrees, the last thing is people hear the metal expand or contract and think there are getting to hot , this is normal.

Please let me know if there is something else i can help you with. thank you and have a good day.

Exhaust makes a loud tick when first started


usually an exhaust leak, at exhaust manifold to head, broken stud maybe. Use a piece of hose to your ear and listen at manifold.

My car was running great. i ran over something off road that made the exaust leak near the motor. i continued to drive it . then it began to run low in water and if i didnt keep a close eye on it, it would...


Exhaust and coolant problems are two separate things. It's possible the donut that connects your exhaust manifold to the pipe came loose or the exhaust manifold or pipe has a hole from rust. You obviously still have a coolant leak somewhere. Start the engine and look under the car to see if you can see coolant dripping. It's either coming from one of your hoses, thermostat, water pump or coolant lines that run from your radiator to your transmission (if you have an automatic). There's a good chances are if it's still leaking the new water pump may not have been installed correctly. Also check your oil to make sure it's not milky white. That means your oil is mixing with the coolant from a blown head gasket. That can happen if the engine overheats severely. Head gasket repair is very expensive.

Smoke comes from around engine


Probably a vavle cover gasket leak, small but enought to produce oil, in or on the surface of the motor doesnt take much to a lil smoke from aa hot engine...it could be collectiing in the canals ontop of the motor where the vlave covers sit on the head? or a head gasket problem....inspect it well after you run the car for a lil while, b4 it starts to smoke

Hi metel,

open your bonnet, look under the main engine block (the side which is facing you)

see where the exhaust connects to the engine, in between the exhust pipe and the engine there is the

exhaust manifold.

This might of come loose.
