1990 Toyota Camry muffler trouble

Question From Guest on 1990 Toyota Camry muffler trouble

So the other day I was driving and my car got really loud. I recognized the noise because the same thing happened to my last car. I got home and checked my muffler (the problem from my last car) and saw that there was a break in the muffler. It breaks off right after the catalytic converter (thank god not the catalytic converter). I took some pics that I will post. I had my friends dad check it out, he's not really a mechanic but he knows some guys. He said that it will cost about $250. That is $130 more than the fix on my last car. He told me my tailpipe is fine, so Im not sure why $250. Is that what it's gonna cost? If not, then how much should it be?

These 2 pics were taken from the passenger door side.. So the catalytic converter is on the right.

This was for the V6 "muffler pipe" which is still pricey. I'd have to look to see what's there as to what parts could be saved now. If some aftermarket creation instead of OE style it could need the whole deal from cat back - can't tell with a car this old what's been done already.

Get some PB on the bolts you'll need to undo. Nuts may be welded on one side and glowing red hot heat might be needed to get them out. If the bolts cooperate these types can be done in no time. Not certain but the threads may be hardware available and 8mmX1.25 or 1.5 - for threads,

Question From Guest on exhaust

I have a 2001 Chevy, Metro and the muffler is falling apart. Do I have to replace everything( tubing and all) or can I just replace the muffler?

Response From flgmtech1 Top Rated Answer

If you are replacing the with factory parts it comes with the resonator parts and muffler and tail pipe as an assembly, the muffler itself aftermarket can be serviced by cutting off ahead of the muffler but the hard part is to be ble to access over the top of the rear suspension. You can remove the two bolts at the flange in front of the resonator and lower the entire section down off of the rubber hangers and move forward of the suspension enough to access the front of the muffler pipe section, cut off and using a coupler join the exsisting pipe to the new aftermarket muffler and tail pipe.

2002 Expedition 5.4 4x4...Muffler swap

Question From hardliquor on 2002 Expedition 5.4 4x4...Muffler swap

I have a 2002 Expedition 4x4 with 5.4 Triton.

Exhaust pipe outside diameter from cat back appears to be 2.5".

I want to buy a Flowmaster 70 series big block and install. Plan on using sawzall to cut the pipe right in front of the muffler and put new one on. Any problems using clamps as opposed to welding?

Not sure what offset to get on the muffler?

There isn't much distance from the stock muffler outlet to the exhaust tip. I plan on purchasing a new exhaust tip, will that clamp directly to the outlet of the new muffler without any problem?

Response From Hammer Time

Although it's possible to use clamps, when doing a custom job like that, nothing will fit good enough for the clamp to work well. You would be way ahead of the game to let an exhaust shop do that for you as they can do a professional job for a very reasonable price. I bring my own stuff to an exhaust shop and I even used to work for one but they are better equipped and better trained to do that work.

Thanks Hammer...I'll take that advice!

Muffler fell off of my car--how to fix?

Question From jblane on Muffler fell off of my car--how to fix?


As I was driving home I went over a pothole and the muffler just fell off the bottom of my 1989 Mazda 929. I looked in the rear view mirror, saw it sitting in the street, and stopped to put it in my trunk and drive (noisily) away. So I still have the muffler and I'm wondering if it would be easy for a car novice like me to re-attach it, or if I'll need to go to a mechanic. The muffler itself doesn't look damaged, dented or anything. Thanks for any advice!

Response From asleepatdawheel Top Rated Answer

I would just go to a muffler shop and have them reattach it... Theres a reason the muffler came off initially and if you need anything related to your exhaust then a muffler shop would be more than able to repair it...

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Not sure how that one is installed but would bet by now it's been replaced and just a muffler and tail spout. If a clamped one over the other pipe it will be hard to do without the tools as once installed they don't just slide on so easy without being stretched open where a clamp would make an imprint OR if this was bolted with a gasket type that may just need a gasket and the bolts.

By now it may not be exact original so I too suggest getting some help as the tools would cost a fortune for a one time thing unless you have access to them,
