I know it's a month late....but did you get your exhaust manifold gasket replaced? If you're talking about the "doughnut" gasket between the manifold and the pipe, that can be a terror, if you're talking about the gasket between engine block and manifold....it's easy breezy. And that's a more likley place (in my experience) for them to fail.

just un-bolt it all the way, your old gaskets will probably fall out, maybe a flat blade screw driver....(don't removed the manifold from the pipe, leave it all together, it'll move enough to get a new gasket in)

Then look at your gaskets, the front and rears should have open holes where you can insert your manifold bolts a couple turns, then slide the gasket down onto the bolts, between the manifold and engine block. The middle one then goes in with the other two bolts (usually)

Good luck if you ahven't already traded this truck, or gotten it fixed :-)
