If this is the Husqvarna 350, then there was an issue with the muffler coming loose, there was a retro fit muffler with a third fixing screw available, if the muffler comes loose there is a chance that it will melt the tank underneath, so you need to address this problem.

Blower bogs down and kills at full throttle

Check the following, then clean or replace:
  • Fuel Filter - Located IN the fuel tank
  • Spark Plug
  • Spark Arrestor - at muffler port, creates resistance of exhaust flow, engine then bogs
  • Carburetor - may need a rebuild kit
Then watch this...

I was driving and all of a sudden i hear a noise thats sounds like my muffler fell off, i still have power,

This is simple. Get on the ground and take a look. If the muffler is there, it didnt fall off. If it is not there ... well .. it fell off.

I suspect more likely your muffler and/or exhaust pipe are rusted through and ready to fall off. Do not operate your car in the routine manner until you get this repaired. It will only annoy the neighbors and could damage your vehicle. There are probably laws where you live that you should also consider.

Get it repaired please.

Thank you for your question @

I purchased a Husky 350 in 2003. Other than the usual problem of the muffler falling off from time to time it's proformed well otherwise. Until a week or two ago. The saw started running faster than...

The muffler falling off was a common fault, there was a later muffler with a third fixing screw in the top, you can retro fit this if you wish, as for the running, it certainly sounds like a fuel issue, the rubber boot conection on the cylinder also incorperates the impulse tube, make sure the tube has not split and come off, it is a short curled pipe from the bottom of the rubber induction boot, this creates the pulse to the carb pump, als make sure the clip around the boot has not come undone.

I guess the muffler is blocke inside with carbon, burn it out with a small gas torch, the carbon will burn and eventually fall out.

Quite honestly, seek out a trusted muffler repair shop nearest you. They may have to replace if it is too rusted ($100-$150?) or with any luck they can weld it back into place ($25). Not dangerous (unless it falls off) but definately annoying!!

The exhaust/muffler is rusted through and falling apart on my 1991 oldsmobile bravada and it is running rough,sounds awful, and spits and sputters when i try to accellerate

It sounds like you have a hole somewhere in your exhaust. More than likely your muffler. I would recommend replacing it. You would have to cut out your existing muffler and clamp on a new one. You could also take it to an exhaust shop and get a new one put on (the easier one). Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

When running metalic vibrating sound from muffler

Hi there
Just take it into the exhaust people and tell them that you need a new muffler ONLY. welded into the place of old one as all your problem is the BAFFEL plates have come loose and the welding is only spot welded and isent any good So a new muffler is ALL YOU WANT

I have a 97 SL2. Muffler "liner" falled?

You may be looking at the heat shield above the exhaust pipe. For the most part this is not an expensive fix unless you live in the socalled "saltbelt" where the salt from the snow removal eats away the mounting points on the shield.
