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.

Replace the cat back exhaust in a 2002 chevy blazer (S10)?


If there is no flange just in front of the cat then it has to be unbolted from the manifold, If this is not possible you will have to cut pipes and purchase sleeves to connect afterwards hope this helps.

My exhaust is coming out at the front of the car not the rear


Do you mean broken off and stuck inside or broken off and fallen out? Broken off and fallen out in this case is a good thing. Sounds like you mean the exhaust is broken at the manifold but what isn't clear is which piece, the manifold or the exhaust pipe. The manifold is a part of the engine, the exhaust pipe is connected to the manifold via the flange you speak of so if it is broken (coming from the engine as a base point) before the flange you need to change the manifold (less likely - hardly ever breaks - usually made of cast iron or cast aluminium) or where they typically break just after the flange (exhaust pipes are notorious for rusting out here, you will need to replace the front exhaust pipe and donut (gasket within the flange). Due to the high heat in this area it is extremely common for the bolts holding the pipe to the manifold to not just be ceased to it (lube will probably do no good) but to actually weld (or forge if you will) themselves to the metal of the pipe, in which case you need to cut them out with a torch. A good mechanic can usually do this without damaging the manifold. That is why it is a good thing if they have broken off and fallen out, much easier to change then welded in bolts (which would not fall out). I say replace the front exhaust pipe because without knowing which year your protege is or if it has an after market exhaust I don't know for sure if it is a one piece system or more than one piece. If it is a one piece you will need to either change the whole thing or do some cutting and welding to piece a section in. In which case, I do not recommend cutting the new piece you purchase but if the old exhaust on the vehicle is in alright shape from the muffler back you may be able to section it off and just replace the front section. Piecing it together would require at least one more piece, one to contact the old pipe to the new which would also need to be welded on but this method can still be cheaper (most of the time). Anything other than a simple in/out replacement will require torches and obviously if the bolts are welded in it is not a simple in/out job.

Loud rattleing from exaust


Rattling from exhaust indicates a failure or parts. Check that the cat converter is in one piece and not collapsed . Check mufflers for holes where the baffles inside are spot welded indicating loose baffles. Check for loose /rusted mounting brackets. Check for broken pipes and manifold fittings.

Rattling/clattering exhaust noise from front bottom


It could be all of the things mentioned in your post. A loose/bent/misplaced heat shield will make noise at different engine speeds as various parts vibrate and (((RESONATE))) in harmony with engine speed. Also, a shifted/loose catalyst brick in the converter can be the culprit. If you KNOW for a fact that it IS an internal fault of the converter, it will need to be replaced. Chunks can be broken off as it rattles about and **** sideways downstream in the exhaust. This not only blocks exhaust, but can lead to a dangerous burn-through condition if the piece of hot catalyst wedges in a bend in the pipe where yo do NOT have additional heat shielding.

Exhaust leak at joint cross over to muffler pipe


Local muffler shop can weld it back together. Or if it's at a joint that has a flange, then the flange gasket can be replaced. Are the two pieces held together with bolts or are they welded.

I have a 1999 ford f150 exhaust pipe and muffler


did the flange come apart or did the pipe break, if the pipe broke then you will have to replace the system fron the flange back, these exhaust systems look good but corrode from the inside out, get a new system i will probably come in three pieces, and new hangers, its pretty straightforward

I was just wundering could i fit a 2ltr turbo exhaust


you may be able to from the converter back, maybe???? if the turbo pipe is the same diameter and the flange size. Of course, a muffler shop could make any modifications to make it fit. one thing you want to keep is that it all bolts together where it does now, So you can unbolt it for service.........Dont let them weld everything together.
