Muffler problems


Recommended Posts



I have a 1997 Accord EX. The muffler is loose and it is emitting a loud noise (both while idling and while moving). When I look under the car, I think I see emissions coming from near the muffler.


Does this mean I will need to have the muffler replaced?


If so, how much should it cost me?

yeah you probably have a hole in the muffler or a leak. get under the car and see where its coming from. if its small they do make muffler patch up type of stuff. if its really bad, and you need a new one, should be 1-200 for a new one, depends on who you get it from though

Your muffler fluid must have run out.


Gotta' get it refilled ASAP! :o


Easiest way to find a leak beneath the car is by jacking it up, starting it, taking a spraybottle full of water and spraying most of the area's you think are most susceptible to leaking. If bubbles form, there you have it.

If you got to Honda and shell out the big bucks for the OEM peice, they extend a life-time warranty to the part. Retain the receipt and the warranty transfers to the next owner.


This could be a selling point if you and the Accord ever break-up and go your seperate ways.
