If it is welded to the muffler you will have to get a cutting torch and cut it off. I would recomend going to a muffler shop and having them weld on a new piece. It is cheap. It cost me $40 to do one on my truck. Dont go to the dealership, it will cost you several hundred dollars.

Convert dual exhaust on 99 sunfire gt to single?


You can cut out the Y pipe and replace it with a flex pipe from parts store, then clamp each end of the flex pipe, the pipe diameter will be 1-7/8 or 2 inch, also for the pipe replacement piece would work from a sunfire or cavalier from 1995 and up, might need to replace the muffler strap too. as it can break from rusting, if not already rusted and broken.

How do I reattach my muffler


If it has just pulled off then loosen the U bolt clamp and push the muffler back on the pipe taking time to restraighten out any bent bits on the end of the muffle pipe. Using a new clamp retighten securely. Find out the reaso it came apart will prevent it happening again. Check rubber mounts on the exgaust system and replace any faulty pieces.. If it has rusted off then find a good muffler shop for the repair.

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.

The muffler hanger broke on my toyota corolla, how do i replace the hanger?


Roll Your OwnThis model's muffler hanger (the metal strap holding the muffler itself onto the car body) is a two-piece design held together with two bolts. The lower piece, shaped like a broad U, can break loose if one of the bolts rusts away. Replacement parts from the local auto store come as a single piece and are not an exact match. This type of replacement will require some determined work to fit once you have removed all of the entire original strap components. And it will cost $30 plus a trip to the hardware store.

If the original U-shaped lower piece is lost or too damaged to reattach, it is a simple matter to fashion a new one with items available at any Home Depot and costing about $6. 1.5-inch wide galvanized metal strips with a row of holes down the middle come in 4 foot lengths, and metric nuts and bolts are often in the same section. Assuming none of the bolts are left, you'll need two 8mm 1.25 bolts, two nuts of the same size, and a few washers big enough to fit easily over the bolts.

Once home, a simple pliers and hacksaw are all you need to bend and shape the galvanized strip to fit around the lower half of the muffler, which should be about two feet in length. After that, it's just a matter of supporting the dangling muffler (a jack or a piece of wood) and screwing the new piece into each end of the original upper half of the hanger. A number 13 metric wrench will do the trick. If you're comfortable with basic tools, this repair will take 20 minutes and outlast your Corolla. -dan parker

Flange at bottom of pipe from Cat broke away , is it posible to weld it or fit a sleeve piece in ?


As long as it did not rust through, it is possible to have it welded, quite cheaply. If it is rusted a new piece may have to be welded to give them something to work with. Look for a trusted muffler shop in your area. This is the kind of shop you want due to their expertise and quickness. Everyone else will want to replace entire systems! Let me know if you need anything else.

Frame is desinergrating....how can I support it


If the frame is rusted you can weld in pieces up plate metal to fix it. If you don't weld or can't get welding done you might be able to bolt a peace a piece of metal. But welding is preferred. You could also go to junk yard and get a different frame or cut out a piece of frame from a junkyard truck. Good luck.

Exhaust Pipe broke/Rust on muffler


Flex pipe will work, or if it's a straight section of pipe you can buy a universal piece of exhaust tubing with flared ends, trim off the rusty ends on your original pipe with a hacksaw or Sawzall and slip in the new section. Clamp it with 2 muffler clamps and you're set. Total cost should be under $40.

I have 96 Caprice Classic...muffler has begun making quite a throaty rumble...I took to Monro Muffler...they said I need to replace from Manifold all the way to back....they want some $600. Anybody have...


I can't see your exhaust system, but I do recommend that you have them show you the "why" of it. Generally the front pipe and the cat last a long time and generally don't need to be replaced very often. If the flanges are rusted and have failed there are "wrap around" replacements that can be used without pipe replacement. Most common is to change everything from the cat back. As I said, have them actually show you what is wrong...or take it to another shop and without telling them the original findings, have them look at it!!! Since there is very little involved except a visual inspection, most shops will not charge or will charge very little for this.
