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.

How do you take the muffler off


On most cars, if it is the original muffler, it will be welded into the exhaust system. You would need to cut the muffler out of the system with a pipe cutter, hacksaw, or torch to remove it. Aftermarket mufflers are installed with clamps. Those must be removed in order to remove the muffler. Even then, the clamps will crimp the pipes together and you often have the chisel the muffler collars off the exhaust pipe to remove.

How much does it cost for the exhaust


Most after-market exhaust companies offer four types of components:
  1. Cat-back exhaust systems - anywhere from $300 to $1200 - The final cost will depend on steel thickness and type, as well as muffler quality.
  2. Axle-back exhaust systems - same as above
  3. High performance mufflers - $75-$300 - The quality of the muffler's materials inside, as well as the type of steel and thickness used, impact the final price.
  4. Exhaust system tips - $25-$150 per tip - Almost all cat-back or axle-back systems include a quality exhaust tip. However, if you're building your own system, you can purchase an exhaust tip to "dress up" your factory pipe.
The schematic below shows where the "cat" (a.k.a. catalytic converter) is in relation to the engine. While many companies sell high-performance catalytic converters, they are fairly expensive and usually don't restrict exhaust flow too much, so we're not going to worry about them here.
alt="Exhaust system schematic with notes">

This is a stylized schematic of an exhaust system.
On some vehicles, the muffler is mounted behind the rear axle. In this case, exhaust manufacturers sell "axle-back" systems. The only difference between a cat-back and an axle-back exhaust is the length of tubing - both include a new muffler. Therefore, there's not a lot of cost difference between the two. Both cat-back and axle-back systems include tubing, a muffler(s), and then all the hardware needed to mount the new system in place of the factory system. Most of the time, these systems use the factory exhaust hangers to make install as easy as possible.
Since a high-performance muffler is a part of a cat-back or axle-back exhaust system, buying a muffler by itself is usually the least expensive option in terms of parts cost. Keep in mind, however, that mufflers have higher labor costs. They're not necessarily less expensive by the time all the labor costs have been accounted for.
Muffler Only vs. Cat-back or Axle-back The biggest advantage in purchasing a full cat-back or axle-back system is that install is really simple. Many of these systems can be installed at home with basic tools. Conversely, installing a muffler at home may not be so simple - cutting and welding may be required. What's more, some after market mufflers require significant re-routing of your stock exhaust tubing...and that can get expensive very quickly.
The other advantage in a full cat-back or axle-back system is that they are often tuned to your specific vehicle and the included muffler(s). All things being equal, a cat-back or axle-back system will perform slightly better than a muffler only.
Stainless Steel vs Aluminized or Galvanized Steel The main difference between a stainless steel exhaust system and an aluminized or galvanized system is durability. Stainless systems will last a lifetime due to their ability to resist corrosion, with 200 300 series stainless systems being more resistant than 300 200 series systems (only the difference is slight). Some manufacturers will try and convince you that one type of stainless system (200, 300, or 400) has better sound quality than another, but there's no evidence we're aware of to support these claims. In fact, stainless steel tends to be slightly thinner than aluminizied steel. If anything, an aluminized system may have better sound quality.
Having said that, the muffler itself is the biggest factor in sound. The steel used in the system isn't as important as some make it out to be (at least in terms of sound quality).
When it comes to choosing between stainless and aluminized systems, it's important to consider your local environment. If you live in an area where corrosion risks are high (such as cold-weather areas that use salt to de-ice roadways), stainless steel may be a reasonable upgrade because it will resist rust. On the other hand, if your local environment is dry and the corrosion risks are low, the only reason to buy a stainless system is for looks.
Exhaust Tips There are probably thousands of different exhaust system tips available. Generally speaking, you get what you pay for. Stainless steel tips are very resistant to corrosion, but they don't shine up as nicely as chrome. Also, stainless steel tips are more likely to "blue", or change color during use. Titanium is also a material used to make exhaust tips - it's incredibly corrosion resistant, but just like stainless it's prone to blue during use. If you like the blue coloring, titanium is probably your best choice. If you want the shiny look, chrome is the way to go. If you want a tip that you can shine up every once in a while - but that's also resistant to the elements - stainless is a smart choice.
Exhaust System Labor Costs If you purchase a cat-back or axle-back exhaust system, labor costs are often very low. These systems bolt-on and use the existing factory hangers. In fact, many performance shops will install a cat-back exhaust system free of charge if you purchase it directly from them.
If you decide you want to purchase a muffler only, you'll want to get an install estimate from your local exhaust shop BEFORE you buy that muffler. Sometimes, installation is very straightforward and the cost is as little as $100. Other times, fabrication is required and the cost can be as high as $300 (or more). If the installation requires a lot of fabrication, you may be better off buying a cat-back or axle-back system instead.

Why is oil coming out of the exhaust pipe?


If your previous turbo had leaked oil into the exhaust system there would still be oil residue left in the system. (1) The catalytic converter/converters would need to be replaced if you have one plus any O2 sensors. (2) If your muffler/mufflers are a glass packed type, replace it with a new one. If muffler is a chamber type you can clean it with a solvent or replace your call. The muffler/mufflers are were most of the oil will be pooling. (3) Clean as much of the exhaust as you can with the solvent that you used to flush the mufflers with.

Why is my car riding hard. I just had the complete exhaust system replaced on my 99 intrigue and instead of the dual exhaust muffler the mechanic put a single exhaust muffler on it and now the car is...


its important to have the right amount of backprettiar in your exhaust, so if going from 2 mufflers and 2 pipes to a single one would need to enlarge the size of the pipe to compansate. or it wont breath right and end up gutless.

My car sounds like a motor cycle is it a problem with the muffler?


Easiest way to find out is to put the car on jacks or ramps. Then roll under and examine your exhaust system. It could be your muffler, exhaust pipe, or catalyic converter. More than likely its a hole in the exhaust pipe before the muffler or your muffler has seperated from the rest of the exhaust.
