Driver side exhaust leak - tq spec/seal type?

Recommended Posts



 I’ve been hearing what I thought was an exhaust leak on the driver side of my truck. Turns out the manifold to converter bolts were loose. I was able to get a little bit of a turn but not a whole lot.


I snug them up for now but I was hoping to find the torque specs for them and also understand the seal type. If it is a metal seal I feel better about retorquing and moving on. If it is not a metal seal I will likely replace it. 


I am hoping it is just a relaxed seal after some heat cycles and miles on the truck. Not trying to go to the dealership for a $10 part under warranty.
