I need your help please. The Exhaust Manifold at the passenger side of my 96 Tacoma V6 4x4 makes a lot of noise or big noise because it has a leaky. I plan to fix it myself. I did lots of researches online but I didn't get any clear/enough information. Thus, I post and need your help here. Please answer the following questions for me if you can.
1. Can I just unbolt the secure of the manifold and pry it back far enough to remove the gasket and replace it?
2. Can I do it without taking off the crossover pipe that connects to the two Exhaust Manifold underneath the Engine?
3. Can I get the gaskets from any auto parts except dealership?
4. What do you call it and what part number is it?
Have anyone of you done it before? Please give me some subjections, a write up, and some pix if you can.
Your input will be appreciated.
