For some reason, too much fuel is getting through your system. Some people refer to this as "running too rich". Burned valves, timing could be off, lots of things can cause this. It may be time to have your timing chain replaced.

SOURCE: 1993 bravada smells like sulfer when ran also

The sulfur smell usually means that your fuel mixture is too rich, and the catalytic converter is reacting with the excess fuel. You'll probably need to replace the catalytic converter along with the muffler, but get the fuel mixture problem fixed before you do that. Else you will ruin the new converter.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 ford f150 exhaust pipe and muffler

did the flange come apart or did the pipe break, if the pipe broke then you will have to replace the system fron the flange back, these exhaust systems look good but corrode from the inside out, get a new system i will probably come in three pieces, and new hangers, its pretty straightforward

SOURCE: 2004 Dodge Ram Backfiring and blowing Muffler

White smoke....Means a Blown Head gasket.. Now its not bad enough to stop the vehicle from running but its bad enough, to blow out white sooner or later it will stop completly, but you dont want to warp the cylinder heads too bad, then you will have to replace them also, so you might want to fix this problem as soon as possible...and the muffler keeps going bad, becasue it is filling up with coolant/ or too much water, which it is not designed to do..You also maybe doing damage to your cat. converters be careful....And Goodluck, and keep me posted...

Should my muffler and exhaust system be replaced if rusty, or is this ok to keep driving

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you are able, you need to change it. It is only a matter of time before you will have to anyway. Pretty soon the rust will turn it into big holes.

03 expedition used to stall after driving for an hour, now muffler is loud and it does not stall anymore

Sounds like your muffler and/or catalitic converter are plugged. maybe even the tailpipe.backed into any dirtbanks? now that the muffler is leaking the engine can exhale. look it over,check it out closely I think you'll find your problem.

1992 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 350 backfiring and headers glowing

You probably have a clogged up exhaust system building backpressure on the engine. Check your mufflers and catalytic convertors if you have them something is restricting the exhaust.

Engine Trouble

Your getting backfires? hmm interesting. Seems like your engine is getting flooded and either purging it out of the exhaust or burning it all at once or both (backfire). Sounds like a leaky engine valve to me.There again the bluish smoke indicates to me thatyou are leaking oil somewhere- bad rings or head gasket maybe, which could cause a loss of compression which could also cause your problems.That rattling from the left/rear side sounds like a bad muffler try kicking the muffler (not hard though) next time you walk by it.
