Default Want to know what broken manifold bolts sound like?

Problem just showed up in the past few days. Took it in and sure enough it is the broken manifold bolts. The attached video lets you know what it sounds like. For me, the sound disappeared by the time I reach the end of the block.

A little over $200 and I am good to go..

That sounds like an exhaust leak to me, I had the same issue a while ago when the engine warms up, the gasket expands sealing the leak more or less to the point that you can't Really hear it that's why it goes away, took it to the dealer and told them I have a broken manifold bolt, sure enough I actually had 3 lol.

Yup, I'm suffering the same problem. So embarrassing, I remote start my truck from inside the house so I don't have to hear it. Lol

When my exhaust manifold bolts were broken, the ticking was constant while driving

it didn't go away after a couple minutes after a cold start, like the usual HEMI tick

hey CmRam, I noticed you had a 2010 with this issue. Were the replacement bolts and repair costs covered under your powertrain warranty? they should be right? I've got a 2010 as well and i'm sure this is what's causing my ticking. Just don't want the dealership to try and screw me if I take it in.

Yeah it was all covered under powertrain warranty. Not sure what kind of ticking you are experiencing without hearing it. If you suspect it is the manifold bolts I'd take it in and tell them it's your manifold bolts that's what I did so they wouldn't try to BS me!

Yeah, the truck is already in for some warranty work... Transmission went kaput but while it's in there I'll make sure they give it a look. As well as fixing the pinion nut recall.

Good luck with that mine was just in for the pinion nut recall, they ended up replacing my ring and pinion and new shims, something about the torque specs with the new nut with the old ring and pinion wasn't within specs, they said now there's 800,000 of these ring and pinion kits on back order now, I was luck enough to get one!
