Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

4 Answers

How much should it cost to replace a muffler and pipe on a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Classic. I was quoted $400 total. The part(s) being $155. That seems high. The shop says they use high quality parts and it guaranteed for life (doubtful...never heard of such thing).

Hi:
The parts price seems about right, and I don't know how many shops you have in your area to get a quote from, but it seems that somewhere closer to $275-300 would be the norm for this job. I had a lifetime guarrantee on a muffler/tailpipe on my truck, but the company closed , so when it came time to re do the exhaust, I didn't get a thing...

Stalling and Check engine light is on. Tail pipe rusted of Muffler this week, Would that have anytihng to do with it stalling?


Really,come on, No ---- the tail pipe wouldn't have anything to do with stalling.

If there were exhaust leaks before the O2 Sensor it wouldn't help any

Tailpipe rusted off muffler, or Muffler piece rusted letting go of Tailpipe, easy fix?


Easy is a relative term. If you can get the remainder of the tailpipe off from the muffler, replacing the tailpipe alone wont be so bad. If it's in there so bad that it will take all day to remove, I would recommend replacing the exhaust from the cat back because it will end up being faster and easier. If you plan to keep the vehicle for any length of time, specifically ask for walker exhaust components; AP mufflers and pipes are a little cheaper but wont last.

I am looking for free assistance. My sister has


Wow. I used to build up Jeeps and never heard of this happening. The only thing that comes to mind is an exhaust restriction. Either someone is deliberately plugging the exhaust (the old potato up the pipe tick) or she is backing into dirt that somehow gets jammed into the pipe. Either way, she should be noticing difficult starting.

Another idea is that the timing may be off or a valve is not closing properly allowing raw fuel to enter the exhaust system. When the fuel gets into the muffler, it detonates. She should be hearing a lot of back-firing though.

Either way, the Jeep would be running rather poorly and she should notice it.

How do i replace the muffler in a 1991 jeep cherokee?


Is the muffler welded or clamped? If welded, Taking it to a muffler shop would assure a good job. Welding a muffler in place is a trade andneeds special wquipment and skills. If it is clamped, Removing the clamps and peripherals is not the issue. Removing the muffler and properly fitting the a new muffler can be not only frustrating and difficult but time consuming as well. You have to buy the muffler in either case so you need to weigh your time against the labor charges. It's like dismounting a semi truck tire. Even the tire guy fights it, but in half the time.. I've done two in 40 yrs and would sit and wait for a tire man all week before I would mess with it. Mufflers are much different. Good Luck _Ned_

Sounds more like an ignition misfire. Sometimes also, an exhaust leak in the pipe above the sensor can add enough air to cause the mixture in the pipe to ignite and cause the same problem. The first "weak point" in the exhaust is the muffler which is why it blows it up. Cutting out the cat will not solve this.

Drivers window doesn't work at all


If its an electric window (most are now), I'd be looking at the window regulator itself. Most aren't much over a C-note, and are easily replaced. You can find usually find detailed instructions via google. I just had to repair one on my wife's '03 Jeep grand cherokee. Total cost was like $93 at O'reillys and about an hour of labor. Much better than the $400 dollar quote from the dealer. There's only so many ways to roll a window up and down..... most manufacturers are about the same. Seems the latest trend is a cable driven setup, with typical failures in plastic pieces breaking.
