My customer had transmission work done. He brought it in because an exhaust leak developed. I assumed at first that the flange gaskets were not replaced when the exhaust was reinstalled. I even ordered them before the truck arrived. I'm glad I checked it out before repairing. This could have been quite embarrassing and unprofessional, had I fixed the wrong thing.

    After 20 yrs my car exhaust flange had to go. The mechanic had to cut it off and then widen the cut. He cleaned the rust off of the pipe, and slid in another pipe. He welded it in and then put steel putty all over the pipe. All that took about 2 hours. I paid $309.00. Labor and pipe with trimmings!

    just spray detergent water on the tube and it will bubble up where it leaks.

    Ray, if someone had a smoke machine, wouldn’t that be safer to check for exhaust leaks and not worry about burns, or missing something?

    My car still has an exhaust leak, even though i had the body shop send it out to get checked while it was in for rear ending damage repair. The flex pipe i had just gotten replaced before i was hit i think is the culprit, since it sounds the same as before i had it replaced. However, they didnt wanna deal with it so now i have too

    At work we had an exhaust leak on an old F250 we parked outside because we were getting rid of it. Of course, it was because someone stole the catalytic converter…

    Youtuber Precision Transmissions had a split cat converter on a GM truck. Also had a jillion miles.

    JB Weld and your good. Right?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randall Smerna says:

    So, can you weld or braze the cat converter split Are you going to replace the whole thing at a gazillion dollars?

    Putting his hand THAT close to the exhaust gave me anxiety

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh Nabours says:

    Is "soapy wooder" a valid test method for an issue like this?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Russell MacLeod says:

    I use a stethoscope with a piece of brake line on the end of the hose to isolate exhaust leaks. It helps keep the skin on your hands and forearms

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike says:

    I worked in an exhaust shop for more than 10 years. When you see the same problem a thousand times it's so easy to make a mistake. If I told you that this never happened to me, I would be full of shit. Don't get complacent. Inspect every car like it's your first time seeing one.

    My 2008 dodge RAM 1500 had that same problem at about 5000 miles. Warranty covered it.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The RealButcher (Peter from Holland) says:

    Didn't we see a guy welding that crack. Same problem, he could weld it, because the catalyst was about 12 mm off the side there.

    Pros bro. Damn

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vincent Gotter says:

    Great job diagnosing my father always said anyone can change parts but it takes the mechanic to figure out what's wrong

    I miss them that all you have to understand

    I saw the water, how i knew you was close to leak.

    I didn't see broken sway bar links, I did however notice that the sway bar link bushings were MIA.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ja Lee says:

    Easy just get a welder and weld up that split.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shekhar Moona says:

    Scotty Kilmer would put paper thereto check the leak.

    Mighty putty that sh

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Big Country says:

    I can't believe how clean that truck is for the mileage. You Must be in the south, otherwise you would have scaling rust on the frame and the exhaust would be in alot worse shape.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil says:

    Wow seem profesional thorought would 100% do buisness with you

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FUBAR LIFE says:

    Looks like that truck needs to go out for a potty walk, it's pissing all over the place 😳

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PannenTheKoek says:

    We have something called gungum and it'll hold just fine. Untill it gets old and just put it on there again

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Irving waters says:

    The dodgy suspensions joint's is probably what knocking the shit out of the catalytic converter. Small problems lead to bigger one's.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Edmunds says:

    Please tell me what state this is. The bottom of this truck looks great for 250k

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee Last name says:

    Put some Bondo on that

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ceasar Salad says:

    Did it bother anyone else that he didnt lower it to the locks before goin under?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jar-Hed says:

    I'm not a professional, but I've always worked on my own vehicle to save money, and I've learned that with my luck, it's best to be safe and be thorough. It seems like every single time I'm "sure" about something being the problem, I end up finding out I was wrong. Usually after buying and installing parts that didn't fix it. You only do that a couple times before you learn to do your research.

    Nice detective work.
