So, engine dampers/solid mounts can have a positive effect on that part's longevity, then :D

i might actually get the dampener Garm sells, see if that will help

Hey guys.. I developed a rattle and I believe it is coming from the same area (manifold/exhaust pipe) connector.. If I apply a but of pressure on the exhaust pipe while its rattling , the rattle stops..

Has anyone changed out the gasket themselves?.. I plan to do it myself and was wondering if there is enough room once the pipe is unbolted from the header to get the gasket out and then correctly reseat the new gasket?

Thanks all!

I had the same problem last year at 64K miles. It sounded almost like the engine knocking or pinging. It was covered under the Platinum warranty.

Whoa, I had this problem last week and got it fixed at my local garage. Fixed the joints at 2 place and was charged $110CAD.

Since my Yaris is at 135000km, I throw my mechanic a bone and told him to replace my sparkplugs and engine belt, he looked around and tighted by rear drum brakes and replaced my front sway bar links.

On top of the new battery I swapped this summer. My Yaris now drives better than when it was brand new! Its like falling in love with my Yaris on day one all over again.

I've changed it, not too hard, you'll probably want a torch to heat up the bolts before removing them, then they will come off easily. Toyota sold me the 2 bolts and springs as one item, think it was $10 maybe? the gasket was on its own, another $10, I can't remember the exact price. you'll need some ramps but should have sufficient room to work on it. try not to get the old gasket inside the exhaust pipe, clean the surface and seat the new gasket and reassemble. I changed this somewhere around 150k.
