If the exhaust isn't leaking, but is falling down, you can get some exhaust pipe strap hangers at any autoparts store, and secure it back into a more stable condition. Hope this helped.

I was pulling out of my drive way and i put my sun-fire into drive and hit the gas and it sounded like something blew i drove down my hill and it progressively got louder, by the time i stopped the car it...

Quite honestly, seek out a trusted muffler repair shop nearest you. They may have to replace if it is too rusted ($100-$150?) or with any luck they can weld it back into place ($25). Not dangerous (unless it falls off) but definately annoying!!

A pulsating rattle on my V40 engine but does not increase with revs

check the undercarriage there should be a heat deflection shield that is above the exhaust. I have a car that sounded like the same thing and hunted for about two months for the problem. When I put it on ramps I noticed that the shield had broke away from the bolts and was vibrating on the exhaust
Hope this helps

Need an undercarriage protection for our 2003 chevy blazer - cant find one!

There are any number of commercial protection products available over the counter.. of any auto part store, or online.

In my own humble opinion... Your best protection is regular washing with clean water, and some WD40 on all unpainted surfaces. Any coating you put on will eventually trap moisture and contaminants under it, causing corrosion faster.
Easy way to prevent undercarriage rust is to power wash the entire undercarrage, then spray the entire undercarriage with WD-40 before the onset of winter.

WD-40 displaces water, helping to keep rust under control. Suprisingly, it doesn't come off as easily as you'd think in wet winter driving.
Use use two medium size cans of WD-40 to do all undercarriage, making sure to spray every nook and cranny (but avoiding the brake rotors/pads) until it is saturated.

Believe it or not, one good coating will last all winter--at least enough to prevent rust. Each spring, use a high pressure sprayer to clean the undercarriage and reapply a new coat of WD-40 for the spring/summer/fall months.

I have an oil problem I am losing oil and do not know where it is going There is no oil the cement or on the side of the motor

see how dark and oily it is around your exhaust pipe tip. at 11 years old your valve guides and piston rings are beyond their normal service life and oil may getting past them and out the tail pipe.

look inside your air cleaner. old motors often pump oil through the PCV valve into the air cleaner box.

look at the back of the car itself. a bad seal can dump oil which turns into a fine mist which then collects as a layer of slime on the back of the car, like road dust.

Wy does my engine rattle in my 93 toyota when I shift gears? 100,000 miles on a 2.4

Are you sure the noise is coming from the engine and not the exhaust vibrating on the frame or undercarriage. This is a very common problem and an easy fix. get under the vehicle and inspect the exhaust hangers while someone is revving the motor. if it is the exhaust, you will see, or hear it vibrate. If it is not the exhaust, get back to me and I will be glad to help further
