Exhaust leak

Ok so i have my trans out and found out that my exhaust up pipe from the pass side has been leaking. My question is, Is there a gasket in there and what is the best way to service this issue?

there is a gasket in the upper connection you can replace it but it is bet to replace the complete pipe and gasket because the pipe gets a groove wore around it from viberations
and will leak again. i did mine and the pipes and gaskets from ford are only like 50.00 each side

Cool I will call the ford dealer first thing in the morning and buy both of these pipes as I am already there.

The ford donuts will luckily seal when new. The two best ones are car quest #17250 and the brass ones from Beans. The ones from car quest are $3 each and are the ones the Bean recommends. Bean also just released a set of brass donuts that are guaranteed to seal and not to blow out. He wants $89 for the new brass donuts.

No matter which way you cut it, the ford ones for $12 each have a habit of leaking. To me it is just not worth it. I have used the #17250 a few times but I will get the ones from Bean next time.

Keep Strokin'

International also has a fix for the leaking uppipes. They have built in bellows so you dont have to worry about donut gaskets anymore.
