Question about Ferrari Mondial

1 Answer

My Ferrari is a 1985. The car starts and runs but has no power. I was wondering if the SS muffler can be bad. It doesn't make the normal sound one would expect from a v8. The car just had its out of car service according to the records that came with the car. thanks

Simple test - run the car without the muffler. If the car behaves normally (apart the deafening noise) then the muffler is clogged and must be replaced.

sounds like a bad catalytic converter, just did my 1985 Jeep could not get it to pass ended up replacing the catalytic converter, muffler, ox sensor and EGR valve then Jeep passed with flying colors.
if your cat is bad it reduces your exhaust flow causing loss of power and increases fuel consumption.

Loud noise like a blocked muffler sound

if it is bogging down on power, it may be a bad converter doing this. sometimes a muffler will break down on the inside. so if the converter is good you may have to remove muffler and start car. to see if thats the problem. good-day ! if car runs normal and it does not need a tuneup, then I would say its a bad muffler. just check the entire exhaust system.

My 1985 mazda rx 7 1.1 gets glowing hot where exhust comes out of the motor , replaced exhust pipe and muffler but didn't help have any suggestions

Check the ignition timing.
Make sure the fuel you are using is specified for engine use.
Last one will be to check the catalytic converter if it still open.

Hope that helps!
