How can I tell if I have a manifold leaking. Sitting on the pass side of my riding down the highway seems like I have a leak you can hear sounds like a flutter noise ( like a manifold leaking) I popped the hood and it is clean no soot anywhere like a leak, are there any tricks ?

LOOK ON THE PASSENGER SIDE WHEEL WELL ABOVE THE TIRE ESPECIALLY TOWARDS THE BACK SIDE OF THE MANIFOLD. FROM HERE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE ENTIRE MANIFOLD. LOOK FOR MISSING BOLTS WHICH ARE PROBABLY NOT MISSING BUT RATHER BROKE. CHANCES ARE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO VERIFY WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE A MANIFOLD LEAK FROM HERE. ANOTHER THING THAT WILL HELP IS TO START THE TRUCK AND CHECK FOR THIS LEAK WHEN THE VEHICLE IS COLD THE FIRST START OF THE DAY.
