really bad exhaust leak help

I have a 99 f250 since I have bought this truck it has had a slight leak now it has got so bad sounds almost like a knock. I took it to a muffler shop no luck. He cant fix it. when its on a rack and lifted it is on the passenger side the pipe is behind the engine and on top of the bell housing he said its leaking real bad. is this the down pipe? he called it the uppipe. how hard is this to fix and how much do you think a shop would charge. Thanks

I've heard it called an up pipe, head pipe and most commonly, down pipe.
Is it loose on the exhaust side of your turbo? It could also be hitting the fire wall...Thats a hell of a noise maker.
I would try another shop or try fixing it yourself. These aren't that hard to work on. The turbo has a v clamp that holds the pipe in place. When the engine is cool, see if you can move the pipe around, and try to tighten up the clamp.

Good luck!

Its your up pipes that are leaking. A Ford shop will bend you over about $1000 to fix it. Or you can get the parts for about $150 and spend a few hours learning about your truck and replacing them yourself!!!

Its not that bad... there are two ways of doing it without removing the tranny. One is to pull the turbo and get to most of it from above. The other is to remove the down pipe and then there is a lot of room to work.

ITs about a 4 hour job for someone who has never done it... If you get new parts and the bolts are not seized.

DI has some new Up pipes that delete the dounuts and such that are really nice but there is a waiting list.

Navistar as well as Ford I believe sell updated pipe kits for this its a commen issue the pipes expand and contract as ehated and cooled wearing out the donut the new pipes have a bellows section and prevent this as well as using a gasket rather than a donut . It is a doable a home job but In my opinion not a fun one mots guys in my shop try to run the other way when a truck comes in needing these pipes

No updated pipes... Same stuff. You have to have the dounuts for the expansion and contraction.
