Default Exhaust Leak 03 EDGE 2wd

Ok, I know where the leak is from. It's right in between the exhaust manifold and the pipe behind it...

Ranger manuals are showing me that there is no gasket supposed to be in there and I have the studs cranked as much as they'll possibly go... Can't figure out why it's still leaking...


Any help?

How do you know it's coming from the flange? Do you feel the exhaust coming through the flange? Are you sure you don't have something cracked/rusted?

Just throwin stuff out there so the more knowledgeable have more info to go off of.

Yeah, I can feel the exhaust coming through the flange. Both sides are leaking so I HIGHLY doubt they're both cracked.

Did you put the headers on? Go to AutoZone get some RTV Sealant High Temp it's orange. Put it around there and you should be set

No that's not my truck lol I'm just letting y'all know where it's leaking from... But yeah I thought about that but doesn't that stay on there and make it really hard to remove?

It isn't really that hard to remove just some scraping, it's not like super glue just to seal stuff
