Did this video help you?

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

peacenlove0101: GM needs to take it easy on threadlock they use it on everything .

Kevin Rogers: like really? this is an extreamly simple job to repair, thos broken bolts where it is not flush with the head they are extreamly easy to do, its not a defect simply because its expected to happen, you have different expansion rates with the manifold, and head, and lets not forget about the rust factor in behind the bolt head pushing on the bolt,  which causes the stress on the bolts and they snap, Ram and ford both have the same issues and fords are a total nightmare to do, ram is a pain as well but not nearly as bad, i can do BOTH manifolds with broken bolts in 3 hours EASY, you dont need to pull the inner fener out, very simple job if your expernced.
just an FYI 2.4's manifolds crack sometimes, 4.3 sometimes leak, 3.5 and 4.2l are horrable for the manifold cracking down in the webbing of manifold, 6.2L in half tons and ESV's its an expected issue with anything the amount of heat and power thes engines produce expecally bering DI now, then whoever tows can see this more

Cindy Barber: I am having the same problem with my 2008 Envoy Denali.  It has the 5.3 V8.  I contacted GMC about this problem after watching your video and they are giving me the run around.  Do you know it there is any one working on a class action lawsuit?  I have 2 broken bolts on one side and 1 on the other.  I only have 118,000 miles on it.  Is there anything that you know of that would be helpful I would much appreciate your feed back.  Thank you and anyone else that has any suggestions.

ELIANNY MESA VERGAL: para neutralizar el picor del producto siempre tener a mano una solución de agua con bicarbonato, 500 ml y 3 cucharadas de bicarbonato, siempre se debe usar este producto con el neutralizarte al lado para evitar cualquier efecto desfavorable sobre todo en pieles sensibles.
MysticdogTamama14WP: I LOVED the cruise! I highly recommend it to anyone! Though I went on it just recently (in 2011), so it looks different now than it did in the video.
