What does an Exhaust Manifold do?

The exhaust manifold is a component that is bolted to the engine block, it channels the exhaust gases from the engine's cylinders into the exhaust. It also comprises of an exhaust manifold gasket and is secured into place with several bolts.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Exhaust Manifold?

  • When the 'Check Engine' light is on.
  • When the engine doesn't perform as usual (car does not rev freely etc.)
  • When dirt has built up around the area of the exhaust manifold.
  • When there is a smell or (in extreme cases) smoke coming from the engine bay.
  • When the engine makes more noise than usual.

When should you consider an Exhaust Manifold replacement?

Due to the extreme temperature fluctuations inside the engine (during the combustion cycles the engine cools and heats continuously) it means that the exhaust manifold is especially prone to wear. It can be that the exhaust manifold develops a crack over time or, alternatively a leak can occur due to a broken mounting bolt. All this can lead to reduced performance (as the engine's vacuum is interrupted).

Should you experience problems like those noted earlier it is important to have the exhaust manifold inspected. It could be that, in those cases, the exhaust manifold should be replaced. Always remember to replace the exhaust manifold as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during an Exhaust Manifold replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the exhaust manifold.
  • If the exhaust manifold is damaged (cracked etc.), the mechanic will replace the manifold.
  • Mechanic will, if necessary, also replace the exhaust gasket and clean the exhaust ports.
  • Mechanic will advise if other parts need to be replaced.
  • If necessary, the manifold's mounting bolts will be replaced too.
  • Mechanic will again check for any leaks around manifold and test drive the car.

What does an Exhaust Manifold Gasket do?

The exhaust manifold gasket is a thin layer of material (usually from metal) that is sandwiched in between the exhaust manifold and the engine. It seals this connection, preventing prevents leaks as well as securing the pressure inside the exhaust ports.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Exhaust Manifold Gasket?

  • When the 'Check Engine' light is on.
  • When the engine doesn't perform as usual (car does not rev freely etc.)
  • When dirt has built up around the area of the exhaust manifold.
  • When there is a smell or (in extreme cases) smoke coming from the engine bay.
  • When the engine makes more noise than usual.
  • When there is a ticking noise coming from the engine.

When should you consider an Exhaust Manifold Gasket replacement?

Over time, a gasket can start to leak due to wear. The extreme temperature fluctuations at the exhaust manifold mean it is especially prone to deterioration.

Should you experience problems with the gasket then it is important to have the exhaust manifold inspected. If necessary, the exhaust manifold gasket should be replaced. Always remember to replace the gasket as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

What happens during an Exhaust Manifold Gasket replacement?

  • Mechanic will inspect the exhaust manifold and the gasket.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the gasket.
  • Replacing the gasket entails removing the exhaust manifold (and reinstalling it).
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will again check for any leaks around manifold and test drive the car.
