Need mechanic with experience with MSP in San Francisco Bay area

Hi Guys, I have had my MSP since January 2003 and need someone experienced with MSPs to help with some problems (either a noisy leak or a leak around exhaust manifold). Thanks very much in advance for your advice!

If the manifold is stock, it's likely cracked. You can easily check it by removing the heat shield bolts (3) and then wiggling the shield off. Soak the bolts with some penetrating fluid or WD40 first and let it sit.
