No you don't. They can cut the pipe and weld the flex pipe into place...otherwise it will get VERY costly

How do you replace the flex pipe on a 1995 Toyota Camry LE?

The 1994 -1996 Toyota Camry has a flexible joint inline with the Rear Catalytic Converter. (Yes two converters!) The Flex joint develops a leak and then the vehicle sounds like a tank driving down the road. The Flex joint is welded onto the pipe so it is not replaceable. Fortunately the cost for the entire pipe with the converter is very reasonably priced! Replacing the entire Converter pipe will have the vehicle back on the road in very little time.

Bad knock on engine people say flex plate on 1979 gmc 350 engine?

If it really IS the flex plate, that's a lot cheaper than other problems that could cause a bad knock. The flex plate is a steel plate that bolts to the rear of the engine and has gear teeth around it. The starter engages with the teeth to start the engine. The torque converter also bolts to the flex plate. All power produced by the engine that is used to move the vehicle goes through the flex plate. Flex plates get old and sometimes crack. When that happens you want to get the old flex plate out of there as soon as you can before it breaks completely and destroys the torque converter. A flex plate is relatively cheap, compared to a complete engine rebuild or replacing the torque converter. To replace the flex plate, simply pull the engine (or transmission, whichever is easiest), unbolt the flex plate from the crankshaft, bolt up a replacement and put the transmission (or engine) back. Of course, there is more involved than that, but it's not as bad as some repairs.

Where is the warm up catalitic converter located on a 2002 Mazda 626?

Pre/ warm up catalytic converters are usually found attached right below the exhaust manifold and before the flex pipe. These converters are made of a ceramic substrate for greater heat protection, while still allowing decent emissions control while the catalytic converter is warming up to the required temperature to start reacting with the VOCs such as carbon monoxide. These warm up converters are generally smaller in size and located under the heat shield that is over top the exhaust manifold.

How do you change Torque converter?

major job for the inexperienced you must first remove the transmission then you remove torque converter from flex plate. flex plate is equivalent to a fly wheel in a standard gear box to replace torque converter, is another job in itself as it must be installed loosely until transmission is installed , then properly filled with transmission fluid then tightened properly if not sure about all this, it is likely to not work or fail going down the road WAIT!, ..unbolt the torque converter from the flex plate and remove with the transmission! If you pull the transmission separately, you risk damaging the pump in the transmission! Same applies going back in, the torque converter needs to be meshed into the front pump of the transmission before putting into the car. Then once the transmission is bolted to the engine, THEN you bolt the torque converter to the flex plate. If you do as described in the first answer, you will very likely end up replacing the entire transmission! This job requires experience and special tools, not for the beginner.
