Panda Evolution: Could of had a V8 I know I could of its a tasty beverage
Jaymz: Kral Auto Parts, Fix it yourself with some brackets. Just ordered mine.
Guillaume Lamdeleine: I own a 2010 sierra with the 4.8L its got 71,104km on it, the bolt closest to the firewall on the drivers side, they said it be 8 hours in labor, and they don't want to cover it on the warranty, the truck hasn't passed the 100k warranty and I also have the extended warranty and still they give me a hard time, I am due for my E-test and they wont do a damn thing about it, they told me my check engine light is on cause of the evap for fuel, read the codes and its not that, total rip off, I'm about to sell it and go back with my old 84 f-150 where I had no warranty but I could do everything my damn self and not have sensors on each part of truck !!!!!
Jordyn Williams: I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado with only 82,000 and it has 3 bolts broke off. Throwing the light. It's not right that I have to pay to get this repaired. I will be a voice on nhtsa.
Al G.: I will never buy a GM product EVER.
animalcorvair: gm needs to recall all of them.. my son inlaw now has this ... i told him to get a 92 chevy with 350 like mine k1500 has real bolts ..an you are right it can cause a fire ...
cerjo84: Working on replacing my clutch, I found one rear exhaust manifold bolt broken on my 2002 ls1 Camaro, it's gonna be tuff to take that one out because of how the engine sits way under the dash.
Ben Bat: I'm in elbow deep on trying to get two flush broken bolts out on my 05 Sierra. What PITA. I had to replace the head because 3 exhaust bolts were broken off on my 99 Sierra I previous owned.
Poe Tay Toe: What's the best way to go around and fixing this with the engine still in at home? What bolts would you recommend replacing them with?
South Main Auto Repair: Fix those all the time. Just did a video on my channel fixing 4 broken studs on a hemi. Got them all out. Just like a chevy...
Ric Bonillas Jr: I have a broken exhaust bolts on my 02 Tahoe 4.8L V8 's cylinder head and VERY EASY to remove broken bolt than WORST FORD AND DODGE! Unbelievable that my Tahoe has over 300,000 miles with an original engine and transmission.
Jessy Burris: Why are we attacking just GM trucks here? Ford and Dodge have the same problem. Fixed tons of them personally...
scan3719: Just spent 10 back breaking hours replacing my exhaust bolts. 3 were broken, 2 flush. Pissed, you bet. Yes, I have torches, welder and professional tools and it still sucked. My suburban is a garage kept queen, not rusty, like the Canadian truck seen in this video. I am a mechanical design engineer, so I know what goes on in corporate design.
koolpimp2012: Just ran into the same problem looking at $1300 for one bolt on each side :/
Thomas Martin: GM did the same thing on the LT1's in the 90's, broken bolts galore. Recall? Not a chance. The bean counters found a place to put in a low grade bolt instead of the tried and true exhaust bolts GM used for eons before.
I finally after 25 years of buying GM, gave up on them. And generations before more me only bought GM. Now they buy Japanese cars. They won't look back.
Peter Grooms: I have a 2004 Tahoe 5.3 with a broken driver's side exhaust manifold bolt. I used a repair bracket ($22) and it sealed the leak! Easy to install, although you need to contort yourself a little to reach to the back of the engine. I agree it's a problem, although I've found the aftermarket provides cheap solutions (Kral, Dorman).
Hunter T.: People need to just do it them selves and fix it right with parts they trust. I repaired my 5.3L a couple weeks ago with new bolts and anti seize.
Terry Thomas: Our 2002 Astra Chevrolet 105,000 kms 2 Missing Manifold bolts ! Cheers GM !
V. L. Moore: Carquestions I saw your video about the bolts breaking on that GMC Sierra, I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 5.3 L and I have the some problem with my truck. I will be contacting someone about this problem. Thanks
