Well I finally got my exhaust checked by a mech. They told me that my manifold is being held in by 2 bolts and theres a crack in it. They also told me that my front pipe is being held by one bolt and I'm getting exhaust gases from the part where the manifold and the front pipe met aka doughnut. I was thinking BS, there are two supports holding the manifold and front pipe. There is sure no way theres a crack in the manifold, this thing is protected by the heat sheild and it can handle heat better than the front pipe can.
Whos else here had a cracked manifold on any toyota camry? The total cost was going to be around 830.00 bux to get it fixed. The most expensive part on the list was the manifold because they had to order the part directly from toyota. What a bunch of bs.
I could really need the help on getting that repair done cheaper somewhere else?
I need ideas on how to get this done.
