We just had our exhaust system done and you have to buy all parts separate and use the clamps to join it together.

Where is the blend door actuator located on an 89 chevy corsica. base 4 cyl with ac


My info on your model year isn't the best. Are your actuators cable operated or vacuum operated? I'd have to get up under your dash to get at that actuator. Also, look at the hvac housing, under the hood, can you see any actuator hook-ups?

Sorry, I don't have better info. I did find an exploded view, vacuum operated, for 1990, don't know if 89 is the same?

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.

under the intake manifold between the fuel rails to replace you need to remove atleast one of the fuel rails to spread them apart for the regulator its not a very hard thing to do just be careful with removing the intake

Is the tailpipe and front pipi sold separately, or as one piece?


Most exhaust are consoladated when manufactured new although parts are replaced in sections. Most likely they will need to be welded on or use adapters to make the installation fit correctly

1991 corsica needs a new exhaust system is this expensive to replace?


If you can go to advance auto, or yor local parts store or ebay for parts and do this yourself you can save a lot of money. Or if you know someone that will do the work on the side that is a machanic and you buy the parts that would be a second option to save you money.

Sounds like a faulty sensor. Have you changed your fuel filter? Checked all vacuum lines? Any check engine light on?
