Manifold Cracked!
 
Hey guys, this my first post and request for information. I bought a 98' Prerunner from my buddy who purchased it new and has taken pretty good care it. I have a question for those who have had the stock exhaust manifold crack- did your manifold crack due to the failure of the exhaust hanger at the catalytic converter? I have to replace the hanger and the manifold and was wondering if the failure of both is related. Thank in advance,
Daryl

I have a '98 and had the same issue... The manifold was cracked when I picked it up. Just replaced it and it's all good now. My hanger wasn't broken though so it's hard to say if they are related. It would put more stress on the manifold if the hanger was broken. My dad and I looked over the Manifold really good when I took it off and it just seems like the cast was really weak in the spot where it broke.

or the stock replacement manifold for $115 and all mounting hardware/gaskets from your local auto parts house...
