cracked exhaust manifold
 
so car has been sounding pretty terrible... i couldnt figure it out... took to shop... turns out my left exhaust manifold is cracked :/.... idk how! better yet... they said its $705 bucks to fix... and add a possible $300 on to it if they find more when they take gasket off...


is this an outrageous estimate?

What year and type of jeep do you have? I still have my stock exhaust manifolds from my 5.7 I can sell you cheap if you pay shipping...

Damn sorry brother. But to be honest pulling the headers off my 5.7 was a PITA even for an experienced custom exhaust shop. I cant imagine that it would be much easier on a 4.7. Maybe someone else can chime in?

The estimate they give is based on OEM dealer prices, which is a total rip off. I do not understand why delaers rip of customers so much on OEM parts; for example, I went to buy an EGR valve yesterday and the dealer wanted $ 125, so went to NAPA down the street and got one for $39.

We call 'em 'stealerships' for good reasons. Customers too dumb to know how much they're getting screwed are hugely profitable.

Dang! Cracked? I'd maybe get a second opinion. A lot of times on the 4.7 the rear manifold bolts can either snap or loosen.
