Looking to buy a V6 Trooper, but the engine has some exhaust leak at
the exhaust manifold gasket. I believe the exhuast manifold bolt is
broken (head might be rounded off or something), so that each
cylindeer's exhuast is held by one bolt instead of two. This particular
Trooper seems very slow, and the engine sounds like a sewing machine.
I've only driven two trucks before in my life (other is Nissan Frontier
4 cyclinder), but the V6 Trooper is so much slower than my Nissan
Frontier 4 cylinder. Question: (1) how hard is it to repair the exhaust
manifold bolts? (2) Do you expect a V6 trooper to be slower than a 4
I realize the Frontier is a lot lighter--around 2800 pounds, but this
V6 Trooper was so slow it had trouble making over this small incline at
55 mph on fifth gear. This Trooper looks great, but I'm just worried
about the if there's something wrong with the engine.
