Doesn't really matter. if it is bolted or welded as you can cut the old muffler out and get adaptor sleeves that go over the pipes and are clamped on with the muffler clamps.

The baffels in the muffler could be gone or the manifold gasket could be out. You may need a new muffler does it sound louder at the front or rear of the car. If its the rear its your muffler front gasket or the dounut

The rear right breaklights on my mazada protege 1997 is not working. I have replaced the bulbs and wondering if htere is fuse problem. I need cpy of he fuse box layout as my manual is missing.

what u can do is just pull out each fuse and check them one by one, that way u can tell if there is a blown fuse. when u turn the lights on does the dash board lights come up? have u just installed a aftermarket head unit? if u have put in a new head unit, then have it so that the earth is just the antenna as that works as a ground. that way u wont blow fuses.

Hi I have a 1997 previa that needs a new muffler. The mufflers online that say the are for a 1997 are really for a 1996. Will they still work with my car

To be perfectly sure, buy a replacemnet from Auto Zone and match it up to the one on your vehicle...the parts store also has a book on the replacement listings for all cars exhaust parts.
That question can be better answered by them.

My 1997 buick lesabre back suspension is bottoming out on the back

it should be air adjustable, if the pump is working, most of the time the shocks leak. have a shop ck out the rear shocks, if they leak, then verify that the pump is operational. Monroe offers replacements.

O2 sensor replacement on a 1997 camaro z28

Ahhh....I see. Well, there is a front and a rear sensor, and the car will almost have to be up on a rack. Even then there will be some jockeying. Personally, I would look at buying the sensors myself and going to a muffler shop to get them put in. You might be able to find the rear one after it's cool, but you'll need a special slotted socket to allow the sensor wires to fit in it so they don't break when installing.

You can find those for about $20.
