My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

I see this has sat for awhile. I'm not sure if this was in the wrong category, but it looks like that may have been the case. It may have been placed in the car Volvo category by mistake.

To do the exhaust manifold on these is nearly the same on any other truck.

Drain the coolant.

Remove the intake and exhaust pipes off the turbo.

Remove the lines going to the turbo. (oil and coolant)

Remove the turbo. Then soak the exhaust manifold bolts.

Remove the EGR cooler to access the top manifold bolts by removing the pipe on the front and rear of the cooler. Unlplug the EGR, remove the bolts holding the cooler.

Now remove the exhaust manifold bolts and the manifold will come off.

Install is the reversal of what was done. Make sure to replace the EGR gasket at the line that you had to take off for the front. It is metal and looks good, but it will leak if you don't replace it.

not the website. I have no control over the site fees, site errors, category errors, or how long it took for a response for these reasons.

I am not an employee of this website, so please rate with a POSITIVE (green) rating for me to get credit for assisting you. You still pay

I want you pleased with my service to you so please inform me before rating negative (red) and I will do my best to make it right. Follow

I do have many workshop manuals, diagrams, etc that I pay to get access to out of my pocket. If one is needed, please ask and I will give
you an offer at my technician discounted cost to you for such manuals. I never charge above that cost.
