Hi and welcome to FixYa!
It may not fit but you can modify it. You may need to bend the exhaust pipe a little to align the muffler properly. It's possible but will surely take a little patience.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Happy New Year!

Last time. I have Ford focus 2003 sedan dohc 2L. I lost a part from exhaust system. from back to front I see 1. tail pipe 2. rectangular box shaped part? Lunch Box? 3. missing part Muffler?

Starting from the front, coming off the exhaust manifold should have, 1. Exhaust pipe, 2. Catalytic converter, 3. Exhaust pipe, 4. Resonator, 5. Tail pipe. Also, there should be an Oxygen sensor somewhere around the catalytic converter.

There is not bledder screw. If you are referring to the drain plug, it is located at the bottom edge of the radiator itself on the passenger side.

Where can I find a 91 honda civic 4door sedan iac control value

At the dealer. Try to find an original honda valve-no aftermarket part-it may not work as well as honda made IAC. Or shop the internet. Seems the dealer should be able to find one for you.

Hi there i have a 2003 honda civic si when ever i am sitting idle there is a rattle / clanking sound coming from under the car it is coming from the front in the center when it makes the noise and i look...

You could have a loose bolt on your exhaust manifold (this happens sometimes with Japanese cars with little reason behind it). If you can, try tightening all of the bolts on the manifold and see if that helps. If you are not very mechanically inclined and tightening the bolts does not totally resolve the issue, I recommend taking it to a mechanic -- just mention that you think it is the exhaust manifold, or the exhaust manifold seal. If the seal is worn out, you should have it replaced and that should resolve your issue.
The reason it only happens at idle is that the engine has a specific vibration to it at low RPM's ... this is a different vibration than when driving ... stepping on the gas also increases the pressure in the exhaust system, minimizing the vibrations. You should be able to get it fixed for a pretty low price, but I would recommend doing it soon so you do not allow collateral damage to the rest of your exhaust system.

Just wonderng about the cat convertor for my 98 honda civic b/c the diagram at autozone looks like it is located in a different place that where i think it is

On the 1998 Honda Civic with the D16Y5 and D16Y7 engines, the Catalytic Converter is part of the Exhaust Manifold. If you have the D16Y8 engine, the Catalytic Converter is separate from the Exhaust Manifold, and is directly between the 1st and 2nd Oxygen Sensors.

Here is a diagram of the D16Y5 and D16Y7 Exhaust Manifold and Catalytic Converter:

Exhaust muffler got louder. No holes in muffler.

Probably corrosion inside destroying the baffles and letting the wadding to break up. Sorry new is the answer.
