Installation of the Lexus ES300 muffler consists of course of the muffler and bolts to attach the muffler to the tail pipe, it also has wax like donut which is inserted into the muffler where the tail piple meets. My problem is there are a couple of long springs that go either between the muffler and the tail pipe OR on the tail pipe side. Which ever way it goes the bolts go through the springs to (I suppose) ensure proper spacing to ensure the wax like donut is not over compressed. The question

I have a 2004 Grand Caravan with 140,000 miles. I have had a front end alignment that checked out fine as well as having the vehicle scanned and there are no motor problems the only thing that came up was the need for a new gas cap however, sometimes when driving between the speeds of 60-80 the vehicle goes into a vibrating shake. This at times disappears for weeks at a time. It is something like what you would hear with a muffler problem but the muffler checks out OK. Any ideas as to what


My guess is worn drive axle components. If the inner joints next to the transmission on the front drive axles get worn it can cause a judder or shaking at certain speeds. Sometimes this judder or shake happens after good axles are ruined after hittin ... 2004 Dodge Caravan

Hello. I am having an issue with my power steering on my 1991 Pontiac Grand Prix. The fluid is rapidly leaking out and I believe the culprit is a leaking pipe. The leak is right where the pipe meets the fluid reservoir so I believe it might be a faulty O-Ring. The fluid is dribbling out quickly and not spraying out. Has anyone else had this problem before and would the O-Ring be the culprit usually. Also, what is the average cost for the metal pipe that goes to a hose that I assume attache

I have a 2000 chevy impala 3.8. i am having problems changing out my [ thermal bypass pipe o ring seal] This is a little black plastic pipe with o ring on each end, a elbow shape piece. [[ i can get one end in, the end that goes into the back of the engine head, but the adle tension housing i might call it, i can't get that end to go in. do i have to remove that tension house to allow that bypass pipe to snap in place ?


Yes, you have to remove the tensioner to install the elbow. There is another fitting that goes in the other side of the tensioner that you may also need to replace as they tend to get damaged when removing the tensioner. I would replace both at the s ... Chevrolet Impala

I have an exhaust leak in my 98 ford ranger 3.0 auto long bed that I can not seems to solve. I have replaced the exhaust manifold gaskets, egr tube, and the muffler which all were leaking. I have taken the vehicle to two different muffler shops and they were unable to find any leaks in the under side pipes, muffler, converters.

After receiving the error code p0036, (Heated o2 sensor 1 Bank 1) I replaced my o2 sensor, Cleared the computer and drove it for a day in a half.... Then the Check Engine Light came on again.

Problem is with temperature control. Even on a very cold day the needle goes up to the top and red light comes on. Had the car to the dealer and he replaced cross-over pipes, thermostat, and and another item I forgot what it was. Cost was very high. Had the work done about a month ago and now it is starting all over again. When I stop at a light the temp gauge goes up to 3/4 and then back down, and sometimes I hear what seems like water sloshing around under the dash. I had the car tow


It may be anything. The good news is that if the cylinder head gasket is blownup, then the temperature goes up and never comes down. If you wil not correct the coolant temperature soon, a bloun gasket will complicate the situation. Sounds like a poor ... 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue

The engine sounds very loud as if there were no muffler, therefore I was told I need to replace the "flex pipe". However I think that the problem is something else, possibly with the valvetrain. When you listen to the engine, this sound only comes from the back side of the engine. I have videos showing the problem. Hope this helps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYlQPFRuT-A http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdOE563FZxs


The flex pipe is located towards the rear of the engine, under the vehicle. It will be very obvious, you mentioned it was loud as if missing the muffler and coming from the rear of the engine. That sounds like a flex pipe and/or front pipe problem. ... Hyundai Sonata

Catalytic Converters It is not a problem. However, I want to know # of Cats 04 Quest has. How many Cats are there? I know there is one cat on each of exhaust manifold. Is there another one just before the main muffler (portion that exhaust pipe's diameter is bigger)? Is this portion considered as Cat?


You are correct. That portion of exhaust is indeed a catalytic convertor. This would be in the rear portion of the pipe with a flexible section that goes underneath the oil pan. Then you have a long muffler and a final muffler in the rear of the v ... 2004 Nissan Quest

I have a sluggish 1994 suburban. It just started this problem. I can tell when pulling my boat or going up hills. I had just replaced the EGR valve because of the service engine soon light. I had also replaced the fuel filter. I also just had the muffler, center and tail pipe replaced. None of these were done because of it running badly. That didn't start until after I did this stuff.


I would start with this basic tune up procedure. Replacing the engine components secondary electrical circuit parts (plugs,wires,cap,rotor) is considered regular maintenance and will pay off in the end, if not solve your problem all together. In othe ... 1994 Chevrolet Suburban
