No reply to question as to whether it is the manifold
No reply yet as to if it is the manifold, but I guess we are assuming it is, since the only other place there should be bolts would be where the downpipe attaches to the system that runs under the truck.
I agree with an earlier post that you have to replace the manifold gasket if that is where the leak is. Putting in bolts and tightening them would at best temporarily stop the leak, but it will come back worse than ever unless you put in a brand new gasket. After you do that, you need to re-torque the bolts 100-500 miles later to make sure you have a good seal.1994 Chevy K2500 Silverado, 454 (modified), original owner.
