Check pump pressure. Line tap 1/8 pipe plug on left side of bellhousing. No pressure means front pump exploded. If you have line pressure of at least 100 psi then check linkages to valve body.

My exhaust is coming out at the front of the car not the rear

Do you mean broken off and stuck inside or broken off and fallen out? Broken off and fallen out in this case is a good thing. Sounds like you mean the exhaust is broken at the manifold but what isn't clear is which piece, the manifold or the exhaust pipe. The manifold is a part of the engine, the exhaust pipe is connected to the manifold via the flange you speak of so if it is broken (coming from the engine as a base point) before the flange you need to change the manifold (less likely - hardly ever breaks - usually made of cast iron or cast aluminium) or where they typically break just after the flange (exhaust pipes are notorious for rusting out here, you will need to replace the front exhaust pipe and donut (gasket within the flange). Due to the high heat in this area it is extremely common for the bolts holding the pipe to the manifold to not just be ceased to it (lube will probably do no good) but to actually weld (or forge if you will) themselves to the metal of the pipe, in which case you need to cut them out with a torch. A good mechanic can usually do this without damaging the manifold. That is why it is a good thing if they have broken off and fallen out, much easier to change then welded in bolts (which would not fall out). I say replace the front exhaust pipe because without knowing which year your protege is or if it has an after market exhaust I don't know for sure if it is a one piece system or more than one piece. If it is a one piece you will need to either change the whole thing or do some cutting and welding to piece a section in. In which case, I do not recommend cutting the new piece you purchase but if the old exhaust on the vehicle is in alright shape from the muffler back you may be able to section it off and just replace the front section. Piecing it together would require at least one more piece, one to contact the old pipe to the new which would also need to be welded on but this method can still be cheaper (most of the time). Anything other than a simple in/out replacement will require torches and obviously if the bolts are welded in it is not a simple in/out job.

Broken or loose front seat

Hello Jerry, There are several ways for your seat to mess up. What you may find is the frame of the seat is splitting due to metal fatique.

The metal frame is a welded part with a sheetmetal base. Over time this base can develop cracks which spread as the metal strains to hold together. This is a more difficult repair to make, sometimes it is more trouble to fix than getting another seat from a Salvage yard. In either case, the seat will be easier to work on if it is removed from the car.

An automotive upholstery shop is the type of repair shop which can do the repair. The big problem is having an air rachet small enough to unbolt the seat mounts through the floor. There will be rust, but most penetrating oils smell and will ruin the inside of your car if used.

You can find a replacement seat in Salvage yards by going to which will put a Nationwide search for your seat to match the color. Or you can use an Upholstery shop and have them strip the upholstery and switch the frame.

There may be a chance of getting a new seat frame, but it will be expensive.

Now you may have another problem which would be in the gear and motor for an electric seat track. The gears can wear out and then the seat will not be steady in its track. I would bet that if you look under the seat and pull up on a front corner, that the seat will rock from a fractured seat plate under the upholstery.

I once fixed my Drivers seat with a longer bolt and a short piece of tailpipe. I drilled a bolt hole into the pipe and secured the pipe against the frame with the bolt. I did not have to remove the seat to do this. But if the seat were taken off, someone could probably weld a heavy piece of metal on the weak side. My electric seat worked fine with the added metal in place. Again, you may get into something being more trouble than it was worth.

I hope my solution was helpful.

2003 SUZUKI GSXR 600 SHIFTING QUESTION I have a 2003 Suzuki GSXR 600 with only 2,500 miles on it (never been dropped or abused im the 2nd owner) and was riding it the other day at around 30mph and suddenly...

The transmission on your bike is not syncronized like a cars trans. When you are trying to shift from neutral at speed you must slow down to allow the gears to mesh. As far as having to rock the bike into gear sometimes, I have owned eighteen motorcycles of different sizes and makes and have had to rock all of them at one time or another to get them in gear. again lack of syncronization. It really doesn't sound as if you have a problem.

Exhaust problems

You need to replace the catalitic converter. If you try to weld it the heat will destroy the interior anyway.

Replacement of catalytic converter 98 Wrangler

you don't have to remove any hangors, but some times its easier. After getting it all off, it goes back on the same way. I prefer welding the pipes shut, but its not neccessary, just make sure the U Clamps you are using are good ones and tightened good.
