EXHAUST LEAK

2004 Chrysler Pacifica

Engine Performance problem
2004 Chrysler Pacifica All Wheel Drive Automatic 89000 miles

Had my dealer change my oil and do a 16 pt check up. Later that day head out on a trip and my car started making a loud noise. I pulled over and had someone look at it and they said it was the exhaust manifold, and I had and exhaust leak and it looked loose and needed to be tightened, and some gaskets may need to be replaced.

Of course the dealer claims not to have " touched" the exhaust system, but I find it very odd it just happeded immediately following a trip to them. Thoughts?

Hi: the manifold usually isn't part of a general inspection unless there already is a leak. If they would have loosned it, chances are you would have heard it when you first started it.
