If the muffler is literally falling apart, I would replace it before you take it to get it safety inspected. If it just has a small hole in it and has no chance of it literally coming apart, then I wouldn't worry about it. So technically, it's not necessary to replace the muffler for a safety inspection but it'll be up to who is inspecting the car if he decides to have you replace it or not. So if the muffler is "rough" , I would replace it. If it's still in good shape, then I wouldn't bother replacing it.

Why does 2006 nissa sentre SE-R SP 1.8 L make a loud exhaust noise? is it just a muffler?

It could possibly be a baffle in the muffler that is causing it to vibrate with acceleration from the engine, or even a exhaust leak from a connection that broke or the gasket has failed. The catalytic convertor might also be the culprit. I would take the vehicle into a shop that specializes in exhaust work and let them put it up on lift to see whats actually going on.

How to change muffler

If you are JUST changing the muffler , I would suggest you take it your friends house ( you know , the friend who has a lift in his garage , and possibly a coin operated beer dispensor?).
Get it up on the lift (a safty minded placement of a jack and a well placed jack stand would do too ).
Sawzall the pipe imediately in front and behind the exhisting muffler.
Remove the old and replace with the new ... use new clamps... old ones ****!
Take down from the hoist/ramp/jack and stands...
Drive to the cop shop and get that 3 day taken care of.

1997 Nissan Pathfinder 153,000 miles service engine light on catelytic code runs great, just had new tailpipe & muffler installed. I'm told fixing this code could cost $1,000- 2,0000 is it...

If you work on your own vehicle, it would be $324.00 to $429.00 for the converter,at NAPA,if you even need one.
Unless you fail inspection for emissions, I would just have the codes read for free,write them down,look them up,then forget it, until I fail inspection a year from now.
That said,if the converter is blocked and causing you to loss power,then you replace it.
It is a bolt on item,check it out on NAPA web site.
Can not cost more than $80.00, plus part, to just bolt on. Have a relative do it in the driveway.

Lol my problem

Leave the cat there. Just add a length of pipe and add a muffler (just get a cheap turbo for $20 bucks at a parts store). Clamp it all together and go. Should be fine.

Muffler problems 3

If they don't require emissions where you're going to take the Bronco, as long as your lights, horn, signals, etc all the required things are working, you shouldn't have a problem with it. The fact that the muffler was bad when you went to emissions, this is the reason why it failed there.

Muffler problems

The muffler issue is all about the decible levels for the area that you're in. They just want to make sure that it's not considered to be too loud.
