Just bought an 03' Escape V6, ran great during test drive because the engine was already warm when i got there. This morning started it up cold and has a loud ticking /hissing sound. Went away after warming up about a minute. I believe its either a crack in the exhaust manifold or gasket. Not sure if its the front or rear manifold yet. What does this job entail?
