brond......as i understand it, heat causes expansion and would seal up leaks. doubtful what you hear is the same unless you are at wot while engine is cold.

Default Exhaust manifold

My exhaust manifolds have been replaced due to warping.Don't know if it had anything to do with bolts breaking but it was covered by my drivetrain warranty.Didn't have to pay anything.

My right side manifold started leaking this past winter, they said the manifold warped and broke some of the studs off.

All covered by power train warranty.

I have a 2009, Hemi engine. What do they have? bolts or studs? I think I have a exhaust leak on the driver side, I have to have it checked, and I know there is a TSB from Dodge to all the dealers on this subject.

Just had my passenger side bolts replaced. I had two busted bolts at the firewall end top and bottom. I have an 09 with 49000 miles.

Dealer replaced all passenger side bolts and manifold gasket for $250.

My nightmare continues: one broken exhaust manifold bolt, left front, the one that holds the dipstick tobe to the manifold. Got 8 bolts from the dealer, $72 for the bolts. I will have a local shop do it for me, trust them more than the "stealer".
