My 03 Jetta was making a lot of noise coming from the muffler, with some investigation I found that the middle part of my muffler has a far amount of rust. OK so I need to replace it sooner then later, but for the time this is going to hold me over. I don’t know how long that the hose clamp will last, but its a nice temporary fix and it only cost $1.79. I also have to say that I don’t know that much about cars.

When you are pulling your car onto the lift, have a TechShop DC help  you. When your car is on the lift, set the wheel breaks behind the tires, this will make sure that the car will not roll off the lift as you are working it. The TechShop DC will rise and lower the lift for you.
