If you are going to rivet or bolt in on you need to drill holes through both tip and exhaust pipe.

I like having them welded on to prevent problems in the future. Any exhaust shop can do that for you.

My car is loud under my hood almost sounds like my exaust


Sounds like a potential exhaust leak due to a hole in the exhaust system. Perhaps somewhere in the pipe, perhaps in the catylitic converter. Gonna have to get in there & look for it. they sell exhaust patch kits, but that's really just a temporary fix. Eventually, That piece of the exhaust system will need to be replaced.

Overheating exaust system 1997 dodge dakota has caused exhaust pipe failure 3 times in past 60 days. Mechanic said unburnt fuel is burning inside pipe and causing failure. True?


I suspect that it is over fuelling and the cat converter is blocking the exhaust
check ignition timing as it is probably too far retarded which causes later spark in relation to the valve timing position where the exhaust valve is opening allowing burning fuel into the exhaust manifold,

1998 Cadillac Deville exaust cross pipe replacement


1) Take it to a muffler shop unless you are a good welder.
2) Procure the new exhaust pipe material.
3) Make the necessary bends in the new pipe to correspond with the layout of the old pipe with a hydraulic tubing bender.
4) Use a band saw to cut the new pipe to lengths using the old pipe as a template.
5) Weld the pieces to form the crossover.
6) Using a cutting torch, cut both exhaust pipes to the length you made the crossover.
7) Weld in the new crossover you just made.
8) If you can't weld with a torch, have no access to a tubing bender and have no way to get the correct exhaust pipe material....take the car to a muffler shop.

Exhaust leak


they don't go into the water jacket, but be careful not to drill any deeper than the bottom of the bolt hole or you can go through to the water jacket, a piece of rubber vacuum hose over the drill works well to limit the drill depth.
