A hole in the muffler would cause a knocking sound in your muffler. A loose exhaust pipe can also cause a knocking noise.
A lack of water in your cooling system will cause your 2002 Pontiac Sunfire to overheat. A malfunctioning thermostat can also cause it to overheat.
Maybe the muffler is bad.
Because of condensation the inside of your muffler, the muffler will begin to deteriorate (rust) over time from the inside. This can and will cause holes in the muffler. Along with the hole (s) the internal structure of the muffler will eventually break apart and plug the muffler, preventing the exhaust gas and the pressure from the engine from exiting the vehicle. This will cause what is called "back pressure" on the engine, causing it to lose power. Extreme example would be "you push the gas pedal to the floor but the car will not go more the 25 miles per hour". I would recommend you have you muffler replace. That should solve your problem.
Damage. Hole. Perished gasket. Incorrectly fitted. Corrosion.
Not likely. But you know you have a hole in your muffler so unless you want to have an accident from carbon monoxide poisoning you should have it replaced ASAP. Then reset the light and if it does not come back on, you know that was the cause.
A buildup of raw fuel in the exhaust system is then ignited and damages the exhaust muffler or blows a pipe apart.
No. It will cause a problem with both back pressure and noise.
Answer: Welded onBelow would be how to repair if the muffler has broken away from the exhaust pipe.If you have a welding machine:If your just attaching the muffler, You would need to attach the muffler to its hanger, then find a way to secure it to the exhaust so you can then weld it in place.If you do not have a welding machine:Most auto repair shops, have a welding machine so that they can do these kind of repairs if you lose your muffler, you can also purchase some special muffler/exhaust tape to tape around the break. Using the tape is a temporary fix.
In world war one all tanks upgraded to muffler bearing. The exhausted would leak and cause the engine to lose compresion and flood muffler bearings stop that
if is the 2.3l, only when started the car,its the supercharged seal to will be replaced. Just'n Style
what causes a roaring sound in a 2004 pontiac sunfire after it warms up? it runs great and idles great and quiet except for this.Anonymously
maybe you would have to check with the rules around your town. most muffler shops wont touch that cause bye law in some places you have to have that on.
start with your head A muffler with holes in it would sound like a muffler with holes in it, terrible. Drilling holes in the muffler would increase the chance of getting exhaust fumes in the vehicle which is a bad thing.
A 1997 Pontiac Sunfire would have a voltage regulator and it would be found inside the alternator.
A free flow muffler can improve mileage but by not by much. It would take a long time to recoup the cost of a new muffler.
That's a pretty tough question but I would suspect maybe someone got careless with a torch and burned up something connected with the O2 sensors. If you had more than a muffler installed maybe they forgot to reconnect a O2 sensor.
Um... Only internal combustion engines have spark plugs. But I could be wrong so check next to your halogen fluid reservoir. If that does not help I would recommend replacing your muffler bearings
Engine is running extremely rich.
It COULD, but more likely it would just cause it to run poorly once it starts.
Hey Al==Check the tail pipe and see if it is mashed closed. Good luck Joe
That would be called a mute.
On a 1992, I would just put a "universal fit" turbo muffler on it and be done. An Official Honda Muffler is going to cost you hundreds of dollars.
