exhuast problems

took the truck into ford to have the oil pan resealed "again" under extended warranty this is the 3rd time! truck is an 02 f350 7.3 auto, with 107,000kms
have been complaing to them for a year that i can smell exhaust in the cab, they always tell me it\s my aftermarket exhaust. i always argue with them, this time there is a diiferent tech on my truck, i get a phone call today and was told my y pipe is cracked.needs replacement , not covered by warranty and since motor is out they will only charge me 1 hour labour but the parts at my wholesale discount are $580.00 , they told me they can only be changed with motor out, is this true, if it is i guess i would be stupid to not get them to do it at this time... a couple hours later i get another call, manifolds flanges where the y pipe meets them is rotted , poor sealing surface but warranty will cover these, another hour goes by and i get another call, now the manifilds aren't covered either , another $800.00. can anyone shed any light on this?? is this a common problem? are there better parts out there? cheaper ones???



thanks

They can be changed while still in the truck, but it's 10x easier while they're out of the truck. Don't buy the Ford units. Buy aftermarket ones that seal better and are cheaper.

Just because I kiss the prettiest girls and I drive my truck too fast, why does everybody want to kick my @ss?
