How do you remove a broken screw without an extractor?
Place a wide band rubber band flat in between the screw driver (we recommend bumping one size up from the screw head which caused the strip) and the screw, then apply hard, but slow force while turning the screw. If you’re fortunate, the rubber band will fill in the gaps caused by the strip and allow extraction.
Is it bad to drive with an exhaust manifold leak?
Driving with an exhaust leak is potentially dangerous as the fumes contain carbon monoxide. An exhaust leak can decrease fuel efficiency, causing your engine to work harder, and you to fill up your gas tank more frequently. A third sign your exhaust may be leaking is if your gas pedal vibrates while you are driving.
How much does it cost to replace exhaust manifold bolts?
Repair includes bolt replacement and exhaust manifold replacement. The cost of this repair typically runs between $800 – $900, parts and labor.
What causes exhaust manifold bolts to break?
Q: What causes an exhaust manifold stud / bolt to break? This expansion and stretching of the manifold bolts over numerous duty cycles eventually causes too much tension on the bolt (s), stretching them beyond capacity and causing them to fail.
Can I drive with a broken intake manifold bolt?
A broken off exhaust manifold bolt in the head will not cause antifreeze to leak into the oil, or anything even like that. That would only happen if the head itself was cracked, in which case you shouldn’t drive the car at all.

Can machines remove broken bolts?
As some at a machine shop, yes we do that. When drilling the stuck bolt for the e-z out did you drill a through hole? a solid carbide drill, will drill through just about anything, hard to get it started if the broken surface is not flat though.
