This is becoming really aggravating.
The exhaust manifold has a round end on the bottom where it meets the cat converter which has a piece that slides inside of the exhaust manifold. The flange on the cat converter has two bolts running through to connect the exhaust manifold and two nuts slide on it to tighten. I don’t understand what the problem could be.
The thing only goes on so far and it will not stop leaking. The nuts are tight. I don’t understand what is going on here.
2004 Ford Taurus 3.0 Vulcan engine. Everything else has been fixed and it is running fine except for this stinking exhaust issue.
