That would be a heat shield, the bolts holding it to the body may have fallen out. You'll need to find out what size bolts these are and replace them.

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.

Ford Escape with rusted, broken bolts/muffler hanging loose from catalytic converter estimate/fix


That is a pretty common issue with the escapes. Most of the time the broken bolts can be removed and new bolts along with a gasket can be installed and everything is fine. Sometimes the flanges are to rusted and the two pieces need to be replaced. Just depends on the vehicle.

Is there a diagram anywhere online for a 1993 Nissan Altima that shows where the catalytic converter is and how it connects to the exhaust system?


The catalytic converter is located appx. underneath the front passenger's seat, on the exhaust pipe. It's smaller than the muffler and squarish in shape. It bolted onto the exhaust pipe. There is only one exhaust pipe on that car and also only one catalytic converter.

My car is making a cladering noice and im not sure what it could be the oil is good was thinkin it may be the exhaust


On a car that old often the heat shield has come loose. When the exhaust is not hot look underneath the car and see if there is some loose aluminum looking sheet looking stuff hanging above the exhaust pipe and converter. If so you can remove it and replace it, tighten it back in with small sheet metal screws or just toss it which is what I did on 4 or 5 Saturns. A shop most likely will not remove it for you as it may create a hazard. It tears out quite easily. If the heat shield is not the culprit, then take a look at the rear muffler mount, another frequent Saturn noise maker. When this goes the muffler rattles and it can cause the pipe further back in the system to rattle.

Exhaust Pipe broke/Rust on muffler


Flex pipe will work, or if it's a straight section of pipe you can buy a universal piece of exhaust tubing with flared ends, trim off the rusty ends on your original pipe with a hacksaw or Sawzall and slip in the new section. Clamp it with 2 muffler clamps and you're set. Total cost should be under $40.

The rear oxygen sensor found on the catalatic converter


I'm not sure what type car you have, but I'm replacing the rear O2 sensor in my 2004 Honda Accord and it leads to a connector under the passenger seat. In my case, I had to push the passenger seat all the way forward and pull back the carpet a bit (luckily, it was pre-cut so it wasn't too bad). If you pull out the grommet underneath (where the wire feeds through). you'll see daylight when you pull the carpet back.
Good luck!

Where is the port 2 02 cencer


The vast majority of vehicles made post 1990 have more than 1 O2 sensor. These sensors look much like spark plugs with a set of wires coming out of the back. The one you are most likely looking for is the last O2 sensor before the exhaust exits the vehicle.

This sensor can be found underneath the vehicle at the catalytic converter. The easiest way to find the sensor is to crawl underneath your vehicle and follow the exhaust pipe from the rear bumper up to about the middle of your car, roughly the front driver/passenger floorboard. When the exhaust pipe seems to be bolted to another section of pipe, much wider than the exhaust pipe and anywhere from 1 to 2 feet long. This is the catalytic converter.

The O2 sensor you are looking for should be on this unit near the front, sitting on an angle on the top, passenger side. It will have a set of wires coming out of the back of it and proceeding up into the passenger floorboard.

If this is not the correct sensor that you are looking for, more than likely you want the one that is attached to the beginning of the exhaust manifold in the engine bay. Open the hood and look down, you should see a solid metal heat shield protecting the exhaust manifold. Somewhere on the manifold will be another O2 sensor.

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.

Catalytic Converters


You are correct. That portion of exhaust is indeed a catalytic convertor. This would be in the rear portion of the pipe with a flexible section that goes underneath the oil pan. Then you have a long muffler and a final muffler in the rear of the vehicle.
