Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo
I failed my inspection because i think there is a leak in the pipe, i checked under the car on the passengers side and about 2 feet in a covering seems to have rusted off of one of the pipes so i pulled it off and it sounds pretty eh. The piece that it was covering has a rubber webbing on it and is larger than the pipe itself, like 5" x 5" x 3" and it gets REALLY hot, like unable to even touch it. Im just trying to find out what replacement part i need or what that is even called!? Thanks in advance...
This is a flex pipe and VERY expensive to purchase from the dealership("Y" pipe). Just go to midas or the local mechanic and have them use a universal joint. Won last as long and may crack later leaving you with exhaust noise, but nothing more depending on the size of the crack.
Mine is hanging in there since March 08...

Yeah, its your flex pipe, i would recommend just spending the extra money. also, for the guy above me, a u joint is on your drive train, not the exhaust, so dont listen to that, a u joint wont do ****, u need the flex pipe, or if u wanna risk it, just put a straight pipe in there, but the problem with that is the flex prevents ur exhaust from cracking and then falling off...so, in the long run, ull definitely want a flex pipe, so put the extra money into it now, and ull save money in the future
