Default Had the same problem

I just got done dealing with the exact same issue. Had bolts replaced on the passenger side at 20k miles covered under warranty and the driver side went bad 1000 miles over warranty and they were not covered. The dealer that did the work on the passenger side said they checked driver side when they did the repair but I don't believe it. Luckily the dealership I bought it from went to bat for me and got it covered. Still I had the headache of dealing with it and driving a pos rental CAR for a week. That car will never be the same btw...

I agree, this is a major problem. There is no way manifold bolts should break at 20k miles!! Could have prevented some major repair costs and headaches to their loyal owners for a few cents more...

I have an appt for 3-8-13 for my exhaust tick. It's pretty bad and I'm going to get it fixed under the warranty.

I had the ticking on the passenger side. One dealer wouldn't repair under warranty, so I did it myself. Only one bolt broken. $14 for the bolt and manifold gasket at dealer. If doing yourself in the driveway it helps to take the wheel and fender liner off.
I now have a ticking from the driver side. I'm going to try a couple different dealers to see if anyone will repair under lifetime powertrain warranty. Truck has 159,000 miles on it now lol.

Had the same issue at 90k miles. Took it to the dealer and they fixed it with no hassle. That only started my issues which I will get into later.

Nope, not unless you bought an extended service plan. The original lifetime waranty is/was only for the original owner.

Two of mine were replaced when the recall first came out. I had under 30k miles on it when that happened. I had that and the hvac door replaced at the same time. Both were on the recall list. I wouldn't pay for it either, good luck.

I'm new to the forum and I see about a year late from this post but I too have the issue. I live in cajun country in Louisiana so there's maybe 2-3 weeks of cold. haha My truck does have that ticking sound when I start it and lasts until the truck warms up, which isn't long down here.
