Intake Manifold Bolt Hole Welded Shut

Recommended Posts

I was installing my new manifold when one of the bolts broke off half way through. I did the standard drill the bolt out and attempt to retap the hole. Well i drilled to low and had to weld the hole shut so I could redrill the correct position of the hole. I can't for some reason get the bit to catch almost tempted to resort to a diamond tipped bit to see if that would go through. Also the hole was stick welded shut.What should i do to redrill and retap this hole?

    • OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts for Your Car: How to Choose
      When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.

      Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.

      You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.

      Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.

    • Replacement Intervals For Oil And Air Filters In Today’s Vehicles
      The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.

      Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.

      Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.

      My 2014 has an exhaust smell in the cabin which is more noticeable when idling. I read online that the exhaust manifolds crack. Well today I’m getting into this and it’s a bitch. The secondary air injection is in the way on this model to access the exhaust manifold heat shield. 
      Finally got the heat shield of and can see a crack...

      Now trying to remove and replace it. Got the O2 sensor out and it’s in bad shape!
