Introduction: Investigating My Noisy Tailpipe!
Just yesterday I noticed my tailpipe making a loud noise near the rear wheel. Something must be afoul!
Step 1: Accessing the Muffler.
Raising the car and removing the rear wheel affords an easy view of the exhaust assembly.
Step 2: The Problem!
Ah ha! A busted rubber mount caused by hot gases from a Crack in the exhaust pipe before the muffler. Why am I not surprised?
Step 3: The Temporary Fix.
I don't want hot exhaust blowing on my fuel tank and brake line. A temporary patch is needed.
Using exhaust pipe joint seal compound and a wire to support the pipe, I can use the car till a proper fix be done. Sadly I don't have the skills for this repair.
I will carry the car into a muffler repair shop to have this crack welded. Hopefully the weld would hold up this time!
