SOURCE: why does the muffler make a popping sound it ...

This is what's called an oxymoron. Because with straight pipes there is no muffler! Haha. Sorta like Jumbo Shrimp.
But the cause of your popping sound is because of afterburn in the exhaust system. With no back pressure because of the straight pipes, some of your engines' combustion is happening in the exhaust. That is a super way to burn a valve BTW.

SOURCE: my muffler system there is 2 or 3 emission part in

The only component that must stay in place to pass federal emissions is the catalytic convertor. If you are not concerned with emissions then a straight pipe will be fine. There will not be any adverse performance problems with a straight pipe. Please rate my help this helps me out , Thankyou RJ

SOURCE: MUFFLER CAN YOU RUN STRAIGHT PIPE GO WITH OUT

I have done that in the past and it ran a whole lot better by getting rid of catalytic convertor.

Title: Increase Fuel MPG by Replacing Back Muffler

Overview:
When your back muffler fails, and or if you want a bit more gas milage, replacing the back muffler with a straight pipe seems to work fine and increase MPG. This is much cheaper than purchasing a back muffler with DIY or to have a local customer shop install a straight pipe.

Symptoms:
Back muffler failing, onion peeling and / or holes in the back muffler.

Experience Level:
Medium

Tools Needed:
Hack Saw, Ratchets, Wrenches, etc.

Time Needed:
About 1 hour:

Parts Needed:
Pipe parts from local auto store. Exhaust sealers, hangers, pipe tip (stainless)

Procedure:
Remove the back muffler by cutting the pipe before the muffler about 2 inches in front of the muffler. Replace with straight pipe components or have a shop do it. You will need some time to get it 100% right. It took me a couple of tries.

Outcome:
- Money savings in replacement.
- Slightly louder, but not much. Actually a better sound (subjective)
- 1-5 MPG gas savings, especially on open road.

Discussion:
I have done this on a 99 9-5 I4 for about 1 year now and it seems to be working fine. I am getting about 3+ MPG on the open road since this was done. It is an automatic with 140k miles solid 29-30 MPG with regular fuel on the open road. I really do not see the need for the back muffler / resonator at the present time.

I will be doing this on a 2001 V6 wagon soon. The muffler will be failing soon.

2003 Saturn vue v6- excessive water, moisture dripping out of tailpipe- same vehicle that's making the roaring noise


Water does drip out of the tailpipe as a matter of course. That's perfectly normal.

If you have a 'roaring' noise from the silencer/muffler area it's probably because there's a hole in it due to age/corrosion and the exhaust gases are leaking straight to atmosphere without being silenced by the muffler.

Water WILL drip from a holed silencer or pipe. This is normal. The water isn't your problem - you have a hole or split in the muffler or pipe

Exhaust Pipe broke/Rust on muffler


Flex pipe will work, or if it's a straight section of pipe you can buy a universal piece of exhaust tubing with flared ends, trim off the rusty ends on your original pipe with a hacksaw or Sawzall and slip in the new section. Clamp it with 2 muffler clamps and you're set. Total cost should be under $40.

Is there a honey comb baffle in my system ,if so can i chissle it out with out many problems and will it increasr the power i dont have...she is gitless


Cold air intake and straight pipe. Baffle would be a smog pipe. Looks like long bullet pipe. I would just use this and no muffler. Or get turbo muffler, and no cat or no smog.

96 grande cherokee 6cyl. replaced o2 sensor and code still shows bad sensor so changed out again thinkjhg it was faulty but code still shows bad sensor.Drove for while and back fires to the point were...


Sounds more like an ignition misfire. Sometimes also, an exhaust leak in the pipe above the sensor can add enough air to cause the mixture in the pipe to ignite and cause the same problem. The first "weak point" in the exhaust is the muffler which is why it blows it up. Cutting out the cat will not solve this.
