rusted bolts and exhaust leak at manifold
I have an '06 lariet with 41,000miles and have a leak where the manifold meets the head on the passenger side. The muffler place in town says they see a big problem with the bolts rusting and wont touch it cause they can break then have to take off the head to fix it, which can be $1400 for the one side. Its so close outside of warrenty I was wondering if others have heard of this problem. I don't really want to spend that money if its a know problem from Ford and if thats the reason there is a leak.
Anyone ran across this issue or have any insight on this problem?
