The 2005 Durango has a notorious issue with the exhaust manifold blowing out
it is a $10-$15 fix if you have someone to replace it.

when you first start it up it sounds loud like the HEMI but then it settles down, also the gas mileage and the power have been reduced as well. best bet is to buy the part and a chiltons manual. $15 bucks and a case of beer later you should be good to go. Midas muffler shop can confirm the exhaust leak as can any mechanic worth a **** and they SHOULD NOT CHARGE YOU!!!

Have your exhaust system checked by a muffler shop.

Exhaust leak in 2005 dodge neon seams to be in front how can i find it and fix it

Since you wired up the muffler most likely the break is around the muffler. Easiest way to find it is to put it in park, have a helper rev the engine to say 1500-2000rpm, then from under the car move your hand around different areas and you'll feel the exhaust coming out where the leak is. Just make sure you don't touch the exhaust or you'll get burned, just place your hand near the pipes not on them!

I have a 2005 ford focus hatchback.manual started sounding loud when i started to accelerate like a loud exhust had it checked said the cat was going out so they replaced the cat and manifold and...

You did not mention the muffler which is the most important one for keeping the noise down. The cat,converter's primary function is pollution control, not noise and if you had a bad manifold you would have a racket even when you were idling. Was the muffler changed ? If not then that was probably the problem in the first place.

2005 Cadillac CTS is making loud noise, sounds like it's coming from underneath the car.

-Muffler pipe connector could be loose.
-Could be a "hole"
And depend on how many part need to replace or just tight down.
-It could run from 150-400 (If replace the whole muffler line, it'll
go up to 800)

Loud noise like a blocked muffler sound

if it is bogging down on power, it may be a bad converter doing this. sometimes a muffler will break down on the inside. so if the converter is good you may have to remove muffler and start car. to see if thats the problem. good-day ! if car runs normal and it does not need a tuneup, then I would say its a bad muffler. just check the entire exhaust system.

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.

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..

Noist gas tank

It sounds like maybe the baffles in the tank have broken loose. If that is the case then you'll need a new tank.
