OEM Exhaust Manifold Gaskets are POS on these and are known to go out. Intentional hole in the Muffler that causes a failed emissions test???? Gimme a break!!! Try another shop, sounds like they're pulling your leg to sell you a new exhaust.
There is some ticking that is normal but ticking from a blown gasket or cracked manifold can sometimes be heard over the radio playing too. Oops, I forgot about the cracked manifolds.Cjack1 said:not sure about the hole for condensation drip, but i have a ticking sound from idle to 2000 rpm and up. I have stock exhaust and dealer said it was a normal sound that the exhaust makes. i thought at first that it was a valve or lifter.
yeah its not too loud, I am probably paying more attention to the trucks noises now that i have had it for a while and have been racking up the miles Good to know about the exhaust gaskets thoughPops said:There is some ticking that is normal but ticking from a blown gasket can be heard over the radio playing too.
A cracked exhaust maniflod will make a ticking noise till it gets hot and expands and somewhat seals the crack. Take it in and tell them what you think it is. The manifolds are welded to the cats and that makes them covered for 80k.stryker759a said:Should i be worried?
