manifold cracked. Was told that removal could cause the "cylinder head" to be damaged.

Asked by May 18, 2009 at 02:28 PM about the 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is this true? Mechanics at a local muffler shop gave me this info. Not possible to weld a fix, and since the entire exhaust systems needs to be replaced had considered an after market "header", but had never heard of a "cynlider head"?! After research on the web, haven't found a company that sells an item called "cylinder head". Is this a common problem and if so, how difficult to replace/find?

1 Answer

the manifold can be fixed. it wont harm the head if you take it off. they just want your $$$$$$$$$$$$ thats all.
