I called the 1-866 number on ramtrucks.com and the guy said the axle seal should have been covered. But the manifold issue is one of those things that I can't prove the supercharger didn't cause the studs to break. So therefore it is assumed that the supercharger was responsible. As long as i don't have to drill the studs, I don't really care to do it.

This may be a dumb question but how do you know for sure or when these bolts break off ? Will it run differently or make a strange sound?

It will start making a ticking noise. Usually worse when it's cold.

Yes, you will hear a noticeable "tick tick tick" when the engine is first started, coming from the side that has a broken stud. Mine came from the drivers side. They replaced the gasket, studs, and manifold which were all broken or damaged. When the engine warms up, the tick is not noticeable, since the metal has expanded. If you have the original powertrain warranty, the fix should be free. If you have an aftermarket service contract, it should only cost you the deductible. If you have no coverage of any type, expect $400-$600 depending on if they have to drill a lot of studs out, and/or replace the manifold.

My 09 Ram had the same issue at 46,000km's. When I went to my dealer i was told that its the usual HEMI tick. I replied that thisis not the HEMI tick it sounds like a exhaust manifold leak on start up followed by ticking sound for about 30 sec till it warms up. finally at 65k i walked in to dealer because i wasent going to accept this as normal. Told them it was embarrassing starting it next to a Ford or Chevy. Finally they had me leave it over night and they listened t it on cold start up and then they told me i had to broken bolts on the exhaust manifold on the passenger side. Repair done under powertrain warrenty. Now my neighbour also has 09 Ram and his was making sae noise before my truck. When I had ine repaired he was at 110k and dealer will not due anything for him. Pretty shitty service on the dealers part and Dodges part for not standing behind their product especially since they have been seeing this coming in for repairs more often now.

Default Same thing for me!

Bought my '09 Ram used (71k) in August 2012 and same thing as everyone else, when it got cold outside my motor starting ticking. Just 21 days outside the state required 90 day warranty. Went to deaeler after reading several forums thinking I would get a recall fix or something but no luck.They told me they found two broken bolts on exhaust manifold. Wanted $325 to replace the bolts then said "your manifold might even be warped" and would cost more. I took my truck to my mechanic and he only found one broken bolt. The dealer was gracious enough to replace the parts and I paid labor to MY mechanic, not the guys who somehow saw two broken bolts. This little episode is the only complaint I have about my Ram.

My exhaust manifold bolts were broken, it ticked loud all the time it was running, not for just the first few minutes like the normal HEMI tick
the bolts were replaced at no charge to me
Just like with the 2 intake manifold bolts that were replaced under a TSB
