It really depends on where the exhaust leak is. If it's in the piping or the muffler, then it won't be to bad fix with some over the counter stuff available at your local parts store. However, if the leak is in the manifold, then you could be lookin at replacing an exhaust manifold gasket. If it is in fact coming from the exhaust manifold, try tightening up the bolts. If work has been done on it before, there is a good chance one or two of the bolts could be loose or improperly torqued. The other thing to look for is a warped manifold, but that usually only occurs if the engine has gotten really hot. I hope this helps in some way.

Have 2003 ford focus dohc. part of exhaust system fell off. from back to front I have 1. tail pipe 2. rectangular box shaped part 3. missing part


I see a visit to a muffler shop in your future. Find an independent privately owned shop, not a chain operated place. They'll be better and cheaper than a chain shop

2001 mountaineer Pai smog with minor smooth leak?


go to an exhaust shop and buy a roll of exhaust pipe fix tape
wrap it around the leak and seal it off
as for the $500.00 payment , that sounds a bit rich as if the car doesn't belong to you and you are only renting it or borrowing it , all repairs are at his expense not yours

2000 ford f150 has exhaust leak bought from dealer in may and code p0320 comes up and smells of burnt oil how dose this get fixed, is it expensive?


Here's the Ford discussion on it:
P0320 2000 Ford F150 Ignition Distributor Engine Speed Input Circuit...
It's not an exhaust issue. P0320 means that one of the ignition coils did not get an electrical pulse to make a spark plug spark.

On certain Ford models, one of the underhood wires rubs against an air conditioner tube and chafes through the insulation causing this fault. You can separate the wire and wrap it with electrical tape and use a cable tie to prevent rubbing. Here's a YouTube video which shows an easy way to fix it.

2001 Ford Focus Flex tube exhaust leak


OK, flex tubes are notorious for leaking exhaust over time due to the overflexing of the tube due to engine mounts not being strong enough over the service life of the vehicle.

One solution, is to take the car to a custom exhaust shop and have them fashion a sleeved exhaust that will not break as easily as the original equipment.

For instance, in my area, we have Midas or Meineke Exhaust centers that can fashion a custom exhaust for the vehicle solving the problem for the life of the pipes, anyway.

Good luck on fixing this problem.

2000 ford focus code p0303 help me


The coil pack harness is the largest suspect here. i had the same cylinder and lousy running with it. I fixed mine myself but it wasn't pretty as I had to take the connector apart to do it. I believe ford has a replacement pigtail for the coil pack so if one of the smaller wires is kinked or busted off (like mine was) I'd purchase the new pigtail from them it will be easier than taking it apart yourself as I did. Regardless, my fix has held. __________________
