A lot depends on where you are located and what parts of the system need to be replaced. The best approach is to go to 2 or 3 exhaust specialists and get written quotes. Make sure they all agree on what needs to be done. It is very unlikely you need the WHOLE system replaced. I have a '96 Pathfinder with 64,000 miles & have not had to replace anything yet. Most likely you need the rear expansion box replaced.

I had to replace mine recently (a '96, similar to the '98), as it was falling apart all over. It cost about $800 CAN for the parts & labour. Apparently, the exhaust is welded and so needs to be completely replaced. The new exhaust (non-Nissan) is now modular and can be replaced on an as needed basis.


I have a '98 and replaced mine about 3 years ago, and had 3 quotes ranging from $600-$800 USD. It sucked, but according to Consumer Reports, the exhaust system is the Achilles heel for the Pathfinders around that year. I wish I would have sucked it up and gone with the stainless steel option they offered me (about $400 more) because here I am 3 years later and in need of another one...

Hi there! Ijust replaced my entire exhaust system on my 1998 pathfinder. It was a diy,and it took about an hour to do.My parts were ordered from .Order the parts that are already welded together.The rest is basically "bolt off-bolt on". Make sure that you also the gaskets. The price from them is usually about 1/3 the price of autozone or advance auto. Good luck!

Cost to replace exhaust system on 94 mustang?

depends on the type of exhaust system you are wanting...also on your states emissions laws. If your state does not require an emission inspection on a 94 mustang, then you wont have to pay for a cat system (which can greatly increase the cost of the system). You should be able to get a decent complete exhaust system for less than $600 without the cats. If you want headers, off road pipes, performance mufflers and so on then you're looking at around $600 - $1000 (thats installed by a shop) you will save alot if you can do it yourself.

If you put headers on an 1978 elcamino do i have to change the whole exhaust?

The answer would be "No, you don't have to". If you installed exhaust headers to improve performance then you might consider if your current exhaust system compliments the headers. Headers are designed to help evacuate exhaust gases and minimize back pressure. If an engine has exhaust headers that collect into a small single muffler and pipe then the effort is somewhat defeated. BUT, if the headers are installed for the "cool factor", and there is nothing wrong with that, then go ahead and use the stock pipes or as much as you can.

Can a generator be installed indoors?

Yes, many generators are installed indoors. Any where that requires standby power have the generators in a room especially designed too accommodate them. Hospitals, sewage treatment plants water treatment plants to name a few all have generator backup. The major consideration when generators are installed indoors is that they have the proper ventilation. A full free controlled flow of outside air for cooling and combustion purposes is a must. The most important aspect of an indoor generating system is the venting of the exhaust system to the outside of the building in which the generator is housed. This exhaust system should not be in close approximation to the incoming flow from the outside cooling air. This is to prevent carbon dioxide from the engine's exhaust being drawn back into the building.
