I tried to fix my exhaust leak today. Turns out ware the manifold and the down pipe meet one of the studs is striped and it just spins. Does any one have a easy way to fix it? Only thing I can think to do is weld the stud from the top so it wont spin. I cant afford to get a new manifold this one cost me $700 last year to have replaced. My problem is I cant get new tags till I get this fixed and I cant drive it that much longer im getting exhaust in the cab right now.
