broken manifold bolts = $1400??
to pass inspection they want to replace a broken exhaust manifold bolt at the rear of both sides of the engine. if the bolts come out it could be about 800$ but if the bolts do not come out easy and must be drilled they want $1400 to remove the top of the motor to get at the bolts. anyone had this happen to them?

Re: broken manifold bolts = $1400??
I had a bolt break off on the drivers side rear like you mentioned. The shop wanted $275 to tap and replace the bolt and gasket for one side. Not sure why they are charging so much. Get another quote elsewhere to compare?
