02 Durango R/T with 5.9 engine has developed an exhaust leak on right side rear. I ave to remove a lot of stuff to check any farther. Is this a known problem with the 5.9 engine? The connection to the Y pipe is ok, no leaks. Let me know if this is a common thing please.:smile:

Check the flange between the exhaust manifold and pipe. There are two bolts, one on each side of the flange. Over time they tend to corrode away causing a leak. Cut these bolts and replace with new ones.

Thanks Ed, you were right on the money. Also the back 2 manifold to block bolts rusted away and caused a leak at that location also.
