Broken exhaust stud

07-26-2004, 04:37 PM
I have a 92 pickup with 2.6L 4 cyl.

One of the studs that the exhaust manifold is attached to just popped the nut off. Stud is level with exhaust manifold flange.

Does anybody know if these are threaded studs? Can I pull the exhaust manifold and then back the broken stud out?

You Should Be Able To Get The Stud Out If Not Just Drill It Out And Use A Nut And Bolt

If I can get the EGR tube off today without tearing it up...I should be able to get the manifold off. This should leave about 3/8 inch of stud showing that I can grab onto.

Came out easy! However, I had to cut the EGR pipe to get the manifold out because the threaded end into the manifold rounded off. A new one was $60. Also I twisted off 2 of the 10mm studs that connect the manifol to the exhaust pipe.

Trty finding these! Isuzu didn't have them. I had to make mine from 10mm bolts.
