Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 2006 Volkswagon Jetta that has 2 badly rusted components for its exhaust system. The first is roughly 4 inches long, and acts as a coupler for linking two exhaust pipes together at the underneath center off the car. There are two clamp like things that are completely rusted and crumbling. What is the name of this coupler. The second issue is a mesh looking cylindrical shaped part that is inline with the exhaust pipe at the bottom rear of the motor has become very rusted and detached itself from one side of the part it was connected to. What is the name of this mesh like part?

Heat the area by the muffler with a torch. Try not to heat the tail pipes themselves. Then take a pair of channel locks and wiggle them out.

You need a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why that light is on. If you have an autozone near you,go there they will hook one up for you. Takes about 30 to 40 seconds. If not call around.

There is a special tool you need to do this. It is virtually impossible to do without this tool. I got mine from Harbor Freight for $20. the kit comes in an small orange case and has multiple heads and it pushes and turns at the same time. Do not use a C-clamp, it will damage the piston. This tool still does use some manual labor, but it is worth it when you save a few hundred dollars doing it yourself!

What you here running after you shut your car off is just your exhaust fan. Your turbo will not continue to run. As for the oil change effecting the exhaust this may be an issue. IF they actually drained the regular oil and then put synthetic then you should be ok. But if they just put more in on top then they may have messed up your Cat converter...good luck with everything
