    The exhaust pipe fell off the manifold, but I actually had it repaired and in the process bought a '65 Mustang. So I'm all set, but thanks anyway.

Loss of engine power, loud whistling noise


Exhaust manifold leak? That's not common. You talking about the VVT near the manifold at the top of engine above the power steering pump? Yes indeed, AC Delco is the only one our engines love. 41-103. Obviously you have P0304, what other codes?

How to replace water pump on 1991 pontiac quad 4


2.3L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable
  2. Detach the oxygen sensor connector.
  3. Properly drain the engine coolant into a suitable container. Remove the heater hose from the thermostat housing for more complete coolant drain.
  4. Remove upper and lower exhaust manifold heat shields.
  5. Remove the bolt that attaches the exhaust manifold brace to the manifold.
  6. Break loose the manifold to exhaust pipe spring loaded bolts using a 13mm box wrench.
  7. Raise and safely support the vehicle. NOTE: It is necessary to relieve the spring pressure from 1 bolt prior to removing the second bolt. If the spring pressure is not relieved, it will cause the exhaust pipe to twist and bind up the bolt as it is removed.
  8. Remove the manifold to exhaust pipe bolts from the exhaust pipe flange as follows:
    1. Unscrew either bolt clockwise 4 turns.
    2. Remove the other bolt.
    3. Remove the first bolt.
  9. Pull down and back on the exhaust pipe to disengage it from the exhaust manifold bolts.
  10. Remove the radiator outlet pipe from the oil pan and transaxle. If equipped with a manual transaxle, remove the exhaust manifold brace. Leave the lower radiator hose attached and pull down on the outlet pipe to remove it from the water pump.
  11. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  12. Remove the exhaust manifold, seals and gaskets.
  13. Loosen and reposition the rear engine mount and bracket for clearance, as required.
  14. Remove the water pump mounting bolts and nuts. Remove the water pump and cover assembly, then separate the two pieces.

How do i change a donut on the exhaust


An exhaust donut is basically a lead ring that mates the exhaust headers/ manifold to the rest of the exhaust. to remove it you must separate the two exhaust flanges on the mainifold and exhaust pipe. These are usually held on by a bolt and a nut going through both. after they separate the lead donut wil be between the two. Sometimes due to rust and extreme temperatures exhaust is rather difficult to get apart and may result in broken bolts. Use plenty of PB Blaster (penetrating lube) to help separate these two flanges. Good luck!!

Just wonderng about the cat convertor for my 98 honda civic b/c the diagram at autozone looks like it is located in a different place that where i think it is


On the 1998 Honda Civic with the D16Y5 and D16Y7 engines, the Catalytic Converter is part of the Exhaust Manifold. If you have the D16Y8 engine, the Catalytic Converter is separate from the Exhaust Manifold, and is directly between the 1st and 2nd Oxygen Sensors.

Here is a diagram of the D16Y5 and D16Y7 Exhaust Manifold and Catalytic Converter: http://www.4shared.com/document/zvR9UsXJ/1998_Honda_Civic_D16Y5_D16Y7_C.html

WHERE TO LOOK FOR EXHAUST LEAK


There are several areas to check for possible exhaust leaks. i will list them below.

1. Exhaust manifold gaskets - This will be the most common area. There is a gasket that separates the block from the exhaust manifold. these gaskets can fail, thus, causing a exhaust leak at the manifold.

2. Lower manifold gasket(donut gasket) - This will be a possible leak spot as well. This small circular gasket is placed in between the upper exhaust pie and the lower side of the manifold. It basically separates the pipe from the exhaust manifold.

3. Exhaust pipe - The entire pipe can rust overtime, thus, creating small holes along the pipe structure. These holes will cause the exhaust to leak ,thus, filling the vehicle will moderate fumes and causing louder than normal engine sounds during revving.

4. Muffler - This component can also deteriorate to the point that it cannot filter out the noise. It will also cause leaks as well.

You will find the leak in one or all of the areas stated above in the list.

How do i change a water pump in a 97 grand am with a 2.4 litre engine


2.4L Engine
See Figure 3
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  3. Disconnect the oxygen sensor wiring.
  4. Remove the upper exhaust manifold heat shield.
  5. Raise and safely support the front end of the vehicle securely on jackstands.
  6. Remove the exhaust manifold brace bolt.
  7. Unbolt and remove the lower exhaust manifold heat shield.
  8. Break loose the manifold-to-exhaust pipe spring loaded nuts.
  9. Unbolt the radiator outlet pipe assembly from the water pump cover.
  10. Disconnect the exhaust pipe from the manifold.
  11. Pull down and back on the exhaust pipe to disengage it from the exhaust manifold bolts.
Do not rotate the flex coupling more than 4°. this could damage the component.
  1. Separate the radiator outlet pipe from the oil pan and transaxle.
    1. On manual transaxle, remove the exhaust manifold brace.

  2. Next, leave the lower radiator hose attached and pull down on the outlet pipe to detach it from the water pump. Allow the outlet pipe to hang.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Remove the exhaust manifold-to-cylinder head nuts.
  5. Extract the manifold, seals and gaskets.
  6. Remove the timing chain cover. Refer to the procedure later on in this section.
  7. Remove the timing chain tensioner. Refer to Timing Chain removal later in this section.
  8. Unbolt the water pump from the cylinder block.
  9. Extract the pump assembly-to-timing chain housing nuts.
  10. Remove the water pump and cover assembly.
  11. Separate the pump from the cover.
  12. Clean all mating surfaces of gaskets and sealant materials.

To install:
Prior to installing the water pump, read the entire procedure. Pay special attention to the tightening sequence to avoid component damage and ensure a proper seal.
  1. Attach the water pump to the cover and hand-tighten the components.
  2. Lubricate the splines of the water pump drive with chassis grease or equivalent, then install the pump and cover assembly. Hand tighten the cover-to-block bolts.
  3. Install the pump-to-chain housing nuts and hand-tighten.
  4. Lubricate the O-ring on the radiator outlet pipe with an anti-freeze solution and slide the pipe into the water pump cover, install and hand-tighten the bolts.
  5. With the specified gaps, tighten in sequence as follows:
    1. Pump assembly-to-chain housing nuts
    2. Pump cover-to-pump assembly
    3. Cover-to-block, bottom bolt first
    4. Radiator outlet pipe assembly-to-cover

  6. Install the exhaust manifold using new gaskets.
  7. Install the manifold-to-cylinder head nuts, follow the tightening sequence and tighten to specifications.
  8. Raise and support the front of the vehicle.
  9. Index the exhaust manifold-to-exhaust pipe flange bolts.
    1. Turn bolt bolts in evenly to avoid cocking the exhaust pipe and binding the bolts. Turn the bolts in until they are fully seated.

  10. Install and secure the radiator outlet pipe to the transaxle and oil pan.

On manual transaxles, install the exhaust manifold brace.
  1. Install the timing chain tensioner and chain cover.
  2. Attach the lower heat shield.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Attach the exhaust manifold brace. Tighten the manifold-to-exhaust pipe nuts to specification.
  5. Attach and secure the upper heat shield.
  6. Connect the oxygen sensor wiring.
  7. Fill the radiator with coolant water mixture until it reaches the heater hose coolant outlet, then install the hose and continue to fill. This will assist with the complete cylinder block fill.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.
  9. Start the engine and top off the cooling system and check for leaks.

How to replace/remove both catalytic converters


Below are the steps needed to remove the catalytic converters. You may be able to first remove the band clamp from between the converter and the exhaust manifold, then loosen the rest of the system and to get enough clearance to slide the converter towards the front of the vehicle but you will need to first remove the clamp that holds the converter to the rest of the exhaust. Hope this helps
_______________________
Both Catalytic Convertors

First you need to raise the vehicle.

Next, you need to pry the insulators from the support brackets and support the muffler and tailpipe with jackstands.

Then, loosen the the catalytic converter down pipe-to-front resonator clamps and separate the front resonator from the converter down-pipes. Carefully lay the free laying exhaust on the ground.

______________________
Right Catalytic Converter

Then, remove the down-pipe-to-transaxle bracket nut, loosen the clamp and separate the extension pipe from the converter.

Next lower the vehicle and remove the air filter and intake ducts. Disconnect the wiring harness for the O2 sensor and the remove the sensor.

Finally loosen the band clamp at the exhaust manifold and remove the converter from the engine compartment. You may need to replace these clamps after removal because you need to pry it apart and they will leak when you reinstall.

_____________________
Left Catalytic Converter

Now disconnect the wiring harness for the O2 sensor and the remove the sensor.

Next remove the down-pipe-to-transaxle bracket nut

Finally loosen the band clamp at the exhaust manifold and remove the converter from the engine compartment.
