I was wondering if anyone can tell me if it is possible to replace the exhaust manifold gaskets on the T5 without unbolting the turbo from the manifold. Ie just remove the manifold nuts, turbo outlet pipe, and oil drain and move the manifold back far enough to get the gaskets off/on. Is this possible?

The aftermarket gaskets SUCK.

Re: Exhaust Manifold Gasket (gdogg16)

Thanks. I did the gasket replacement (removing the turbo) using Volvo parts.<p>Can't figure out why the manifold studs backed out of the block. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"><p>And the manifold casting was full of cracks.<p>I thought Volvo knew how to design turbocharged engines.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Chilled Man)

Maybe I should go find a Toyota forum to see if they are talking about exhaust manifolds coming loose and cracking at 60,000 mi. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

Maybe you should.<p>I replaced the exhaust manifold on my 99 tercel in 2003 because it was cracked. And it was not even a turbo engine. Just a lowly 4 banger.<BR><BR>
