My 2007 Toyota Corolla muffler is loose. Make loud noise as I press gas. Should I not drive my car. I am not driving it as of now.


Drive it to a muffler shop. You won't hurt anything driving it, just your ear drums, maybe.

Intake manifold 1996 Blazer S10


do you mean the valve cover ? because I don't think you can have the intake manifold backward.(if it's backward, you cannot connect the upper hose and the fuel lines)
so any way, it sound like you have the valve cover swapped. it won't hurt to drive but it is a problem to fill the engine oil as you stated.

It sounds like its the muffler, but when i put it into drive the noise is still there, but a little less noisy. what could it be?


If your car is making a noise that sounds like the muffler isn't working, chances are there is a rust hole in it or in a pipe before it. It should get quieter when you put it in drive with your foot on the brake. The idle rpm drops in drive, less RPMS = less noise.

Very loud sound when driving as though muffler not functioning. Drivability okay otherwise. Service Dept can"t see me for a few more weeks and not sure if it's safe?


You should be okay for short trips . I think the muffler went out has a hole or leak.
The noise is going to get louder and louder if it is the muffler.

I just had my muffler/exhaust system changed at a garage. Before I brought the car in it was loud, but otherwise ran fine. Since I picked my car up I have noticed that now it struggles to reach cruising...


first of all , i would say check your oil pressure.second i would take a look at your oil pan and the screw that holds it together.because some times they put them on too tight scripping them,that can make it do most of the things you described above.or if its not tight enough,it could do the same. i hope i was helpful in some way. good luck

Engine Back fired, blew out muffler.


Sounds like you may have gotten some debris in your exhaust pipe or something was clogging your muffler. Maybe the innerds of you Catalytic Coverter went and got stuck or the innerds of your muffler gave out. That would be the only few things I could think of to cause something like that.

Sincerely,
