Yes a lack of back pressure can cause the oxygen sensors to read improperly, which would turn the check engine light on.
Are you trying to remove the exhaust manifold,the muffler,or just the line running from the manifold connection to the muffler?
im not too sure but i think its because ur kind of pushing it into a smaller space which means that the gas doesnt have enough room therefor having to remove some.
No, it is for noise only.
Remove the muffler (don't remove the exhaust pipe or the muffler joint band, just twist the muffler off). Remove the caliper housing. Remove the brake pads. Twist the caliper back into the body (large screwdriver or tire iron twisting to the right and pushing at the same time). Install new pads (making sure that they seat right. Re-Install the caliper housing. Re-Install the muffler.
the resonator is a separate part of the exhaust system not part of the muffler it is to change the tone of an engine sound some are mounted before the muffler and some after the muffler if you really want to remove it cut it off with a sawsall or chain cutter and weld in a piece of pipe or look at a aftermarket exhaust catalog many replacement pipes omit resonator's.
remove the muffler and add a loudener
no - you'll just earn a ticket for noise
Jack up the bike, remove the right side saddlebag, loosen the exhaust clamp at the front of the right muffler and the two bolts supporting the rear of the muffler on the saddlebag support, remove the pull-off muffler on the right side, remove the rear brake caliper, loosen and remove rear axle while supporting the wheel, note location of spacers....move wheel ahead, slip drive belt off and remove wheel assembly
Yes, it is a screw in plug on the muffler and it has a screen on the end. Unscrew the spark arrestor from the muffler, then heat the screen with a torch to remove all the carbon buildup. GOOD AS NEW!
You will probably get a ticket for a very loud vehicle. No real benefit can be obtained by removing the muffler on a small 4 cylinder or V6.
the thermostat on most mercury's is located just above the muffler. must remove exhaust pipe and muffler to reach thermostat. good luck.
Pig bites can contain up to 50 pounds of pressure. This is enough to remove a finger from a human hand.
I located the oil pressure switch but it hard to get to with out having to remove other parts. Any easier way?
I'm having the same issue. I'm trying to replace my front axle and I need to remove the muffler to get to the axle bolt. Please help. I recently replaced the front axle on my STX38 so I took off the muffler as well. The muffler's heat shield needs to come off first, I think there's just two bolts holding that in place on the front of it. If I remember correctly, there were 4 bolts total securing the muffler. There are two bolts towards the front of the muffler that connect vertically to the body of the mower, these need to be removed. If you look at the very top of the muffler where it connects to the engine you'll see another two bolts that need to be removed. I had a tough time getting these two completely out since mine were a bit rusted but they did eventually come off. Once all these bolts are removed, I had to wiggle the muffler out of the bottom of the mower. For the people doing front axle replacement - once the muffler is removed you should have access to the bolt securing the axle.
There are not two catalytic converters. Working towards the muffler from the flange, you have a RESONATOR, a CATALYTIC CONVERTER and finally a MUFFLER.
Remove the muffler
My advice is to take it to a muffler shop.
no not at all not enough room.if it's standered and you need to replace the clutch you have just enough room to remove and install the clutch remember cut the clutch tool in half
It's probably a heat shield, to protect the passenger compartment floor or fuel tank (or whatever is near the muffler) from excessive heat from the muffler. You could remove it, but why bother?
Reduce the closing rate on the valve.
The canister is located under the rear of the car near the muffler and the gas tank. Raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands. Remove the muffler. Mark and number all the hoses on the canister. You want to get them back the right locations when you install the new one. Remove the fuel tank vent hose from the canister by pinching the tabs on the hose together. Disconnect the electrical connections from the pressure sensor and switching valve. Remove the mounting bolts and remove the canister from the vehicle. Installation is the reverse of the removal. Good luck.
