The listing of cracked manifolds doesn't include my 1996 Mustang GT.
When it cracked, the radiator shop told me that they had replaced several
recently, and I thought that might make it eligible for a TSB.
My selling dealer found it for me, but the dealer in the city where I
happened to be said that there was no TSB covering my vehicle. I had to
give him the TSB number before they would do the $960 job for free.
Then they wanted to charge me for the missing serpentine belt. I refused,
saying there was certainly a belt there before the manifold cracked, that
it must have popped off. I offered to pay for the belt, but refused to pay
the flat rate labor, since the car was already being worked on. It got
down to an ultimatum. I told them to push the car out into the street, and
I would put my own belt on, that I was going to buy at Kragen.
