Question about 1995 Pontiac Sunfire
I have a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire. The main exhaust pipe that runs from the muffler to the catalytic converter is hanging a few inches from the road.
Is there a hanger or bracket that I can get to cheaply repair this? I'm trying to sell the vehicle, and it's not worth it to install a new catalytic converter kit, as that's roughly half the cost of the vehicle's worth.
Is there a diagram for this model that will help me identify what kind of bracket/hanger i need, and where to install it?
Put the car up on ramps or jack stands and look for a broken hanger. If the rubber part is broken buy a new one, if the metal rod has rusted away then go to a auto parts store and buy a universal hanger. If the exhaust is broken buy a length of repair pipe. Either ridgid for a straight section or flexible for bends. Use a sawzall or hacksaw to cut off broken ends, fit repair pipe and clamps over the old pipes, then tighten the clamps. The people at the store should be able to answer any questions for you.

Most local muffler shop will inspect the exhaust for you for free and if it's just a broken hanger, they can replace it for around $45.00. You could always go to the auto parts store and buy a new hanger, but your going to have to get under the car and remove any old parts left over from the old hanger and place the new one. Good luck and hope this helps. If you go to Auto Zone they can help you look up all the hangers for that car or any muffler shop as mentioned earlier.
