Well the obvious comes to mind, replace it. Hit the junk yard to find one, the dealer is rediculously overpriced! There is no right way to repair a cracked manifold. Answer You can try a cheap doesn't always work but there is a product called JB Weld. It comes in 2 tubes, you mix together and it becomes hard. Now if it is a crack, I would take a small grinder and just lean up the area around the crack and then try the JB WELD. I have used it and it worked and I have used it and it hasn't worked. It's a couple of bucks you can throw at the problem. The above suggestions are fine but I always try a cheap way first. You never know. If the crack is too large, you may just want to go with the first answer. Good luck.

If you aren't hearing a lot of exhaust noise and you're just getting smoke, you have either an oil leak or antifreeze leak that is getting on the exhaust manifold. If you're getting oil on the manifold you have a fire hazard and should take care of the problem immediately. If you hear exhaust gas leaking around the manifold you need to replace the gasket or possibly the manifold is cracked and you need to replace the manifold.
