Take the exhaust from that point all the way to the back off the brackets. Connect your exhaust and then re hang it back on the hooks. This is the same way an exhaust shop will do it and you will save about a hundred bucks not taking it to them. I had the same problem with my civic the dc headers did not want to connect to my converter this is what i did and it all went together like butter.

No i think that you should try get a professional for that if you do it, it sound like it's right but it's not which will lead to excessive engine vibrations which in turn could lead to rapid wear of engine brackets.

How to remove catalytic converter

There should be a flange type of piece with a donut type of gasket seal. If this is the case you would need to tap those outward to break the seal. use a hammer with a screw driver to do this or what ever else might work for you. You might have to loosen the muffler pipe and move it away so it will let the flange separate. As for the other idea of it being welded, only if it wasn't bolted on would it be. I'm not a expert but i do hoe this helped give you something to work with. Last resort would be to take it in to a muffler shop. good luck with that.

HI Guys This problem is continued from the other

you need to set the idle pin. there is a stopper on the throttle you need to screw it back. as it has never been used therefore it has never been set. screw it back until it is at the right revs then lock it off.

Difficult to start up sounds sluggish, once shut off, won't start, coil was hot (coil recently replaced). Needs new muffler.

Replace spark plugs with new ones. put new muffler in. The muffler has an affect on the way engine runs. (back pressure) is needed. At this age you may need a head gasket(s). Compression check on all cylinders. The list goes on... Good luck

Loud muffler sound is it the muffler

It can be the muffler. Also the Catalytic converter or just a gasket connecting the exhaust manifold to the pipes.

This needs to be inspected because fumes can kill. The entire system is meant to get the fumes to the back bumper through the pipes.

Hello I just replace my motor mounts had to pull muffler from motor put back and it sounds loud so i took it off went to auto zone and the clerk said i needed the donut so after i drilled out the busted...

sounds like the manifold gasket is bad, or the exhaust pipe coming from the manifold head was not properly seated. Got back to auto zone and get a repair/maintence manual for your car , and it should help you get the manifold head gasket/muffler assembly back together.

I need to replace the oil pan gasket and it looks like the exhaust pipe is in the way-what should I do?

The tail pipe is connected to the muffler. You need to remove the entire muffler. However, the hot exhaust fumes tend to corrode connections so taking off the muffler might require some work.
