exhaust manifold ??

hey guys today i noticed that there was some coolant on the ground under my truck not much but some. So i crawed under my truck to see where it was coming from and it looked like it was coming from the passanger manifold. This may be a dumb question but do all trucks have manifold gaskets? Im thinking that is the problem from the naked eye but not 100% sure. Has anyone had this happen to them? Thanks for helping me out guys Brad

I would be more worried about why you have coolant leaking from your exhaust manifold...

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

However...I may be mistaken, but the trucks didn't come with exhaust manifold gaskets, but there are gaskets for them. If it's been apart before, there may be gaskets in there now.

I'm gonna guess that you don't have coolant leeking out of your exhaust manifold or you would have a multitude of other problems. I'm guessing its coming from somewhere above and leaking down the head to the manifold.

What he said^^^^^^^^
Check the EGR cooler hose, also look for leaks around the oil cooler housing. Don't forget to check the heater hoses.

I don't know what made it think it was coming from the manifold

Call Jeremy and have him look at it. He just did the studs and he should have replaced that tube.
