Q: Q: Exhaust manifold

asked by on

On my manifold there is 2 bolts in it but there are not 2 on the other side, I heard some manifolds don’t have bolts on them at the end does this make any sense. Shouldn’t I have 4 not 2

You may have broken bolts or studs in the engine head that would cause an exhaust leak. You may need to remove the manifold and extract the broken off bolts from the cylinder head by drilling them out and using an extractor or tapping a new hole.
