4.7L exhaust manifold leak question
 
for those of you who have or have had the exhaust manifold leak did it just tick when it was cold or does it tick all the time? my engine is ticking all the time no matter if its hot or cold. I'm taking it in tomorrow to the dealer and just wanted to make sure I'm having them look at the right thing

mine ticks all the time, always has ever since i got it with 200 miles on it.....i thought it was just normal and the way the engine sounds, maybe i will have to look into it

I don't own a Jeep with a 4.7L but it should sound like a Tick if it's a exhaust manifold leak. Replace the Exhaust Manifold Gasket and your GOLD. :thumbsup:

BUT Find out what it is first!

would the exhaust leak make noise all the time no matter if engine is cold or hot?

I'm pretty sure it would. I never had one, but from what other poeple have explained, it would be making noise everytime.

do you know whats wrong with it? cuz i just picked mine up from the dealer and they say that its normal to tick but the thing is it keeps getting worse.

Not normal, its the driver rear exhaust manifold that broke off, if its under warranty, they have to cover it.
