It depends on what tipe of welding you are using. An exhaust fitting company will most probably use a MIG welder without taking it off.

I have a 1997 chev cavalier, and as I was driving I heard a dragging noise, I looked under my car and the tube from the exhaust that connects to the muffler is off, what will i need to fix this, my brother...

Take your car to a muffler shop and ask them if it's possible to reweld the exhaust pipe to the muffler. If the exhaust has rusted too thin, they wont be able to weld it safely, at that point you will have to replace the entire system unfortunately. Exhaust systems comes in sections, so ask them if its possible for them to replace the exhaust from the catalytic converter back only. It should be cheaper if they can do that. Good luck!

My 1992 Saturn SL2 needs a muffler. Don't want anything expensive since I don't know how long the car will last before needing something major. I can buy a muffler, but my question is about installing. ...

Usually you can get an universal muffler, around $20 or so. You can install it with a muffler clamp to hold it on to the existing exhaust pipe instead of welding it.

Rusted muffler

If it is welded to the muffler you will have to get a cutting torch and cut it off. I would recomend going to a muffler shop and having them weld on a new piece. It is cheap. It cost me $40 to do one on my truck. Dont go to the dealership, it will cost you several hundred dollars.

How do i replace the muffler in a 1991 jeep cherokee?

Is the muffler welded or clamped? If welded, Taking it to a muffler shop would assure a good job. Welding a muffler in place is a trade andneeds special wquipment and skills. If it is clamped, Removing the clamps and peripherals is not the issue. Removing the muffler and properly fitting the a new muffler can be not only frustrating and difficult but time consuming as well. You have to buy the muffler in either case so you need to weigh your time against the labor charges. It's like dismounting a semi truck tire. Even the tire guy fights it, but in half the time.. I've done two in 40 yrs and would sit and wait for a tire man all week before I would mess with it. Mufflers are much different. Good Luck _Ned_
