Default Exhaust Leak at Manifold

Started hearing a tick from under the hood when cold starting. The tick was pretty loud but went away once the motor warmed up. Took it to the dealer and they said it was one of the bolts on the passenger side manifold that had broken. They had to order the new gasket and bolt. Should be in by Monday.
The service Manager says he's seen this in a few Rams lately. Just figured I'd pass on what I found out.

Also, my drivers side floor mat had a hole in it by the time I had my truck 5 months. THEY WONT COVER IT UNDER WARRANTY. They said its from wear and tear. Funny, I had my 05 Ram for 4 years with the same style mats and the same feet I have now and they never tore or wore out. Go Figure!

At least they are taking care of the manifold bolt.

They have de-contented and dropped the quality on a few accessory items over the past few years because of cost...and they went broke anyway...

If it was the carpet, they would replace it. You might have to argue with them a bit on that but in the end, they'd do it.

The manifold bolt issue is a RRT for some trucks. So they should know about it.

SUBJECT: RAPID RESPONSE TRANSMITTAL / SERVICE ACTION #10-009

Engine Ticking Sound In Cold Temperatures

INVOLVED VEHICLES:
2009 (DC) Ram Truck (3500 Chassis Cab) (Includes International Markets)

2009 (DH) Ram Truck (1500/2500 Pick Up) (Includes International Markets)
2009 (DS) Ram Truck (1500) (Includes International Markets)
2009 (DX) Ram Truck (Mexico) (Includes International Markets)

NOTE: This Service Action affects both sold and unsold vehicles.

DISCUSSION:
A number of models built before August 14, 2009 (MDH 0814XX) equipped with a 5.7L
engine (Sales code EZC or EZD or EZH) may have been built with an engine that may
emit a ticking sound heard at start-up in cold ambient temperatures. This sound could
be less noticeable as the engine warms to normal operating temperature. This condition may be caused by broken or loose manifold bolts for cylinders # 7 and # 8.
Dealers are required to replace both sets of exhaust manifold bolts for cylinders # 7 and # 8 with new stainless steel higher strength bolts.

Question

Sorry to revive an old thread, but i just started hearing a tick when I start up the engine in the mornings or after it's cooled down. It's coming from the passenger side and I found this looking for a possible explanation and what to do. Just called the dodge dealer and said I'm out of my warranty period and it is not covered. My question is if it was a problem they were aware of, why would they not cover it??

Default Manifold Leak

I have the same problem with my truck, and now that I think about it, I had the same problem with my '09 Hemi. I just didn't realize it then. Anyway, I called today for service and Summit Dodge in Syracuse, NY stated the manifold, gasket and bolts are all covered under the powertrain warranty. The kicker...extracting the bolts out of the block is not covered and I will have to pay for the labor for extracting them and re-tapping the block. Not happy that I have to pay for any of it but at least the manifold gaskets and bolts are covered. I have not heard of a recall but it sounds like there are a lot of problems with this. Maybe it is something Ram needs to consider paying for since it seems to be a problem across the board. They will be hearing from me about this.

Bullcrap (not you, your dealer). I just had (two days ago) my passenger-side manifold replaced as the bolts broke and it was cracked. My truck has 120K on it, but it's covered under my Max Care Warranty with a small deductible. They had to extract FOUR broken bolts out of the block and it was covered. Your dealer is giving you a runaround - find another dealer.

The manifold failed, plain and simple. Not your fault or responsibility because the bolts are rusted and broken.
