Since no one esle is responding....I have no personal experience in this but have read other posts with recommendations. 1. Have someone plug the tailpipe and look for exhaust to come out, also if engine does not stall than there IS a leak. 2. When running Seafoam lots of smoky exhaust is produced and leaks are made appearant. 3. Listen with a short hose and attempt to identify a leaking/hissing sound or hightened engine noise level due to crack.

Do you have a 2.7L engine? If so, those manifolds create cracks on the inside of the manifold, below the heat shield. Remove the heatshield and look down from above the manifold and you should see the cracks.
