    one of the exhaust manifold bolts broke in half. So- part of it is stuck in the block but I have no idea how to get it out so that I can replace it and fix my exhaust leak. what in the world do I do to get it out? :confused:

    Is any of it above the head surface? Remove the manifold and us some big vise grips, or weld a nut to it.

    Yep, weld a nut to the end if you can or extract it with an easy out.
