Question about 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Muffler is loud and rattles due to debris and possible hole

The car idles loud and when the gas is pressed, the muffler rattles due to debris inside. Yet, the bolts are way too rusted and old to be tampered with as they keep the two parts of the muffler underneath the car very solid. What do I do?

    So after going to an well acclaimed mechanic, found out that it consists of debris from the catalytic convertor. His recommendation was that he'll take off the back part of the exhaust system going to the back of the car and clean the debris from the muffler manually. Come to find out, he'll do it for $60. He even offered to show me how to do it, but I had already tried on two occasions and I guess my muscles just aren't strong enough cause that rust won't allow the bolts to budge. So he said he'd do it.

Either live with it or get out a saw and cut it out and weld in a new exhaust muffler. or you might get the measurements and get one to fit where you cut out the old one from your parts store.. make sure you measure your pipe and get a muffler that will fit over the pipe .. You will need clamps for the muffler also.. thanks and holler if you need more Jerry

My 91 manual escort is loud is it the manifold or the muffler


Hi Antonn,
Open hood and listen. You may need someone else to press the throttle slightly. You should be able to hear a manifold leak. If you can't then it's probably down to the muffler

There's a gas smell inside the car.


Check your muffler for holes. The gases can enter the passengers cabin and it can smell like gas, specially if your car isn't burning gasoline completely due to bad tuning.

I can feel friction while driving above 15 mph.


If you have a bad wheel bearing then you will have a vibration that you will notice. If that is the case then you have a bad wheel bearing.

If you had a hole in your muffler it would be loud all the time and be even louder upon acceleration. You could check this first by getting under your car while its running and see if exhaust is coming out where it shouldn't be.

Loud engine or Muffler


hi. if the muffler is truly cracked, it will release a loud, unfiltered, noise during acceleration and idling as well. it will rattle as well. i recommend replacing the muffler ASAP.

Concerning the fill up at 7-11, there may have been a high water content that was in this gas stations tank and, this was transferred to your tank during the filling. the Lucas treatment will remove the water out of the tank and correct any damage that may have occurred,if any..

Exhaust pipe rattles when car idles. Had muffler


Check the heat shield on the Catalytic Converter, after a few years they start to rust off and rattle. Crawl under the Pathfinder and bang along the Converter and muffler area and see where it's coming from.   Good chances are, it's from the heat shield since you already had everything changed from the Cat back.
Good luck and hope this helps.
