Flex pipe exhaust leak. What happens when flex pipe leaks. However a few people have had good luck with cutting off the existing flex pipe and welding on a new one to the catalytic converter. If theres a crack in your flex pipe it will cause an excessively noisy engine. After the car is resting on axle stands let the car run for a few minutes to determine the only damage is to the flex pipe.
Or you can take it. And found that the flexpipe located right after the header was cracked. Its not always easy to notice a flex pipe exhaust leak or even when it starts to break down in the first place. Cut off what you need clean off the rust add piping and flex pipe as needed. Alright so heres the situation I have a 2004 saturn ion redline and recently driving a leak has developed in my exhaust from a slow leak to now an awful sounding hellish leak. Hastelloy x alloy is an excellent metal for high temperature applications. This is due to a loss of backpressure from the leak. Im thinking around 150 for this repair.
And found that the flexpipe located right after the header was cracked. And noticed that there was a crack where the passenger down-pipe met the flex pipe. I took it to a buddy of mine who works at a midas auto shop. However I can get a whole new AY pipe bolt-on section which INCLUDES the flex pipe for about 10000.
Ill get under the truck when I have some time but this is how theyve done it. They didnt even have to take the wheel off. On front wheel cars since the motor is mounted transversely when you accelerate the motor rocks and the flex pipe protects your exhaust system from breakage.
