It makes a putting sound then when I press on the gas it gets a lot worse. The guy I bought from said at first it was the manifold and that he j.B. Welded it but it came right off. Now he is telling me it is a crack under the head gasket. When I looked up what a blown head gasket sound like it makes that same noise.

Has he told you that it is an exhaust leak or a misfire? Is it using coolant? Over heating? Has he done a compression test or a head check test? You need to do some hands on diagnosis, you do not want to be pulling heads if the problem is a blown exhaust gasket or a cracked exhaust manifold.
