2007 Escalade ext ,34k miles. Heat shield on exh manifold rusted thru mounts , fell into steering column. Steering locked in a rt hand turn, went loc, very hard jerk on steering wheel broke it free. Checked passenger side, it had also fallen off but didn't cause any problem.
Bolts ended up coming out of manifold on their own through time.
I have a 2005 Cadillac Escalade 6. 0l engine, with 88,000 miles on it. I had a ticking sound investigated by a local mechanic and he found 3 exhaust manifold bolts, two on one side and one on the other, had spontaneously broken. He indicated before he lifted the hood that was the problem because "that was a common problem with the 6. 0l engine". I checked with Cadillac owners group and edmunds car space and readily found several similar complaints with the 6. 0l gm engine. This should never happen and could lead to an engine compartment fire and/or the leakage of exhaust gases into the same. I had all of the manifold bolts replaced. They didn't appear to be excessively corroded, but rather, the heads of the 3 failed bolts appear to have just popped off. I have the bolts that were removed and replaced. This problem is somewhat insidious because it can mimic the sound that a bad lifter might make. I contacted Cadillac customer service and filed a complaint. They offered no recourse.
