Exhaust Leak from manifold

Post by spearous » Fri Jan 17, 2014 9:49 pm

So I took my Z-28 to Rosner to see what is exactly wrong with my exhaust. They said the driver side cylinder head bolt is broken, need to remove cylinder head and remove the bolt by drilling it out that its going to cost 1680.00 bucks to fix it. If I don't fix I will burn out a valve or warp the head. I don't have the money to fix it at least at Rosner :( Anyone know someone they trust that can do it cheap real cheap :)

Men, that's sucks. Sorry to hear that. If you going to my firepit tonight you'll meet my buddy who is a mechanic and has his own shop on Melbourne. He fixed my opti problem i had last month. But, if the head bolt broke you wont have exhaust leak from the manifold. And you have a bigger problem.

Not the head bolt. The Exhaust manifold bolt broke that is in the side of the head i think he means.

This is why the exhaust is leaking.

If your sure can get a small right angle drill in the area you might consider
http://www.brokenbolt.com

There is also old trick where if enough is sticking out you weld a nut onto it by centering a properly sized nut over the broken stud, filling the center of the nut with mig weld then using a socket wrench to bring it out....forget that if you have aluminum heads or it broke off at the level of the head...

If either of those sound like beyond your comfort level ...
there is shop right behind the airport and specializes in
all years of Camaros and modified racecars.....321-508-1046
His name is Doug Hunkler may even be able give you a quote over the phone
for something common like this if you know which ones are broken.

Yea I went by their descript. on the paper work but I guy writing up didn't know jack and shit, have to say I was disappointed on how they treated me at Rosner between at the service area with the ridiculous price and going over to showroom to buy a car. I told sale rep what I wanted he kept showing me new Camaro when I wanted a use 2010 ss. Ive talk to few friends Quotes I got to fix my car was 300 to 500 for labor I don't know how Rosner came up with 1320for labor.

Probably based on head removal cost, that way if the head needed to be drilled and tapped to remove the broken studs it could be....along with the standard stuff involved with checking the deck/block interface and replacing the head gasket and head bolts all of which would be prudent and required after removing the heads.......a lot of labor that would add years to your engine, but may not be needed to fix the immediate problem and may even be redundant if the head gaskets have already been replaced at interval.

2010 - 2012 1SS is still going to be around 27k+

Damn you can get a 2010 LT for almost 17k now :-) and have more HP than your current Z28.

most I've seen been around 24 to 27k which is a huge diff. payment wise compared to a 38k car I can afford a 27k car not a 38k car plus with my trade in and down payment I would only own about 19k. Ive done the math that's is why I'm looking for a 2010 Camaro ss
