Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem is a common vehicle problem that happens to most car brands and models. The following is a sample list of Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problems reported in most popular vehicles.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Chevrolet Avalanche

The vehicle was a 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 3GNFK12358_. Excessive oil consumption. Initial problem occured on February 11, 2014 and gm dealer did some iinitial work, but the problem was not fixed. On April 27, the engine began running very, very rough and several lights came on (engine light, traction light, stabilitrac light and there may have been others). I immediately pulled over, checked the oil level found it was 1. 5 quarts low, so I added oil and started engine again. So I had vehicle towed to my gm dealer. The next week, the dealer said they were looking into the problem. Finally the week of may 5, they said they would need to replace pistons, rings, lifters and I don't remember the entire list. I asked what was this going to cost and who would be paying for the work. Service manager told me the total would be in the $4500 range, but he would check with gm to see if they would pay part of this. Next day service manager said gm would pay for all except a $500 "warranty deductible". My receipt shows they replaced one piston, the camshaft, 16 lifters, lifter guides, the manifold, a sensor, 8 spark plugs, added 6 quarts oil, installed oil filter, recharged a/c system and charged for numerous gaskets, nuts and bolts. The dealer told me that the reason for the problem was due to the fact that my engine was made in mexico. They said they used parts manufactured in canada on my repair work. I have read on the internet that this excessive oil consumption problem with this engine is not new - it has been reported to gm for several years. Why didn't gm stop using engines manufactured in mexico before 2008 if in fact this is the main reason for this problem. They should have been proactive to prevent this widespread problem and causing their customers to pay needlessly for repairs that gm should have paid for in total - or replaced this engine totally!. This issue happened on May. 8, 2012.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Chrysler Town & Country

The vehicle is a 2008 Chrysler town and country. I have had this 2008 t&c since 2009. Bought it one year old with 20,000 miles. After the first oil changed I noticed that oil was being consumed somewhere. It wasn't burning out the tail pipe (no blue smoke anywhere, anytime), so the engine must have been using it. When I called the Chrysler service department, I was told that it is normal for engines to burn a quart of oil every 1000 miles. I have never heard of any engine using that much oil ever! I have owned 16 cars in my lifetime and not one of them ever used oil - none! so, knowing this I had to keep 5 quarts of oil in the garage at all times and about every other week I would add another quart. So my wife was coming home from work late one night and the van died while driving. I took it into a repair shop (not Chrysler as it was out of warranty) and my mechanic told me that along with dropping a valve seat in one of the heads, that the engine had also spun 2 bearings and were shattered in the oil pan. I have always made sure to keep oil in this engine because it was using so much and would check it regularly as I was always worried about it - especially since Chrysler said that it was normal - which it isn't! now I'm stuck paying for a $3,500 engine and labor at 103,000 miles and a 6 year old vehicle. This is entirely unacceptable! I know I'm not the only person complaining about this specific vehicle as I have looked up online to find that thousand's of other people are having the same issues. Honestly I cannot believe the motor has not been recalled for this by now as it has been happening for years now! I normally drive all of my vehicles to 150,000 to 200,000 miles and when I have sold all of them they have been in perfect running condition - but this t&c has been nothing short of a failure since the day we bought it. What makes it so hard is this is the 3rd t&c we have bought and the other 2 were great!. This manifold/header/muffler/tail pipe issue occurred 03/04/2014.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Chrysler 300C

My Chrysler 300c hemi started idling rough and showing code p0300. Oil/plugs were changed, and my car worked well for ~500 miles. After which the low oil level light chimmed. After taking to the dealer the oil pressure switch was replaced and all was right. Close to a month later, while stopped at a rail crossing the car stalled with error code p1520. I checked the oil which was low and added to the correct level. In the oil, there was no discoloration or anything to cause alarm. I started the engine up and while the p1520 was gone I had the p0300. After removing the manifold small aluminum pieces where found inside. Plugs that were close to 4k miles old were ash covered and throttle body. Valves and cylinder #3 head need to be replaced. This problem occurred on Mar. 20, 2014.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Dodge Durango

The car is a 2004 Dodge Durango. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1D4HB48D74_. Moisture entered into the cylinders via that air intake manifold due to a water seal design defect in the area of the windshield wiper arms. When the vehicle is parked, rain water coming down the front windshield will flow directly under the cowl and onto the engine block. This water intrusion causes undue stress on the pistons, rods, and crankshaft eventually causing a rod to break and puncture the engine block. If this happens at highway speeds, the results could be deadly. The other known scenario is after the car is parked for a period of time (exposed to rain), the cylinder will fill with water, causing a hydro-lock condition and the vehicle will not start. The engine usually is found to also have a bent or fractured rod at this point. This is a known problem by Dodge / Chrysler and they refuse to do anything about it. See the numerous complaints on edmunds. Com blogs and on youtube regarding this topic. This issue happened on Friday, Apr. 18, 2014.

When accelerating at about 40 mph the cruise control would not work when I tried to engage it, however the car began speeding up quickly while my foot was off the gas peddle. I tried to engage/disengage the cruise control but got no response, except the engine rpm and car was still speeding up, the car was getting close to 60mph and I began putting on the brakes the car was still trying to accelerate and rpm still going up as I was stopping the car. This car continues to accelerate faster on it's own when driven and today 5/19/14 again from about 35 to 50 in about a mile, this was not as severe as the first time but is troubling and a waste of my gas and brakes. This is a Taurus sel with automatic trans. And a 3. 9l v6 engine. I found the cruise control cable off of the lever it connects to near the intake manifold( after reading about other Taurus models/years with the same problem). I will be contacting a Ford dealer to see if they have a fix as cable is still very loose after I tried to reconnect it. It was Fri., Oct. 11, 2013 when this manifold/header/muffler/tail pipe issue happened.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Hyundai Elantra

My wife purchased a 2000 Hyundai Elantra VIN#[xxx] from brown Hyundai of toledo OH. On 4/18/05 she brought the car to brown Hyundai at 63,000 miles due to a notice about possible for cracks forming in the exhaust manifold, specifically TSB 05-01-001. No replacement was made at that time. Recently, I noticed an existing crack in the exhaust manifold and performed some research on the internet about the problem. I am sure you are aware how common of a problem this has been as there are numerous complaints on various automotive forums, the NHTSA, and various states' department of consumer protection. I had the vehicle recently (10/08/12) inspected at voss Hyundai of centerville OH who has confirmed the existing crack. At 125,000 miles the car is passed its powertrain warranty. Simply because it was not visibly evident in 2005 does not mean the manifold was up to Hyundai's quality standards. Exhaust manifolds are cast iron or steel and are not a moving part subject to friction. Therefore, I cannot accept that this current problem is the result of standard or expected wear-and-tear but caused by a pre-existing defect that has surfaced over time. Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). This problem occurred on 08/18/2005.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Hyundai Elantra

The car involved is a 1999 Hyundai Elantra. I have read many of the complaints about the Hyundai. I've eliminated practically all the same complaints about the engine performance by tuning the engine every 30 to 35 thousand miles. The gas mileage and performance has been very acceptable. Yes I too have had to replace the manifold, mas air sensor, and other small maintenance parts. The only thing I haven't been able to repair is when I'm setting at a stop and idling, the engine tends to overheat. But when I began to drive it quickly cools back down. My Hyundai now has approximately 230,000 miles and is still in service but still overheats. Any suggestions?. This manifold/header/muffler/tail pipe issue occurred Friday, May. 7, 2004.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Jeep Wrangler

The VIN of this vehicle was 1J4GA39189_. I found leaking transmission cooler lines on my Jeep Wrangler. I contacted Chrysler/Jeep by phone to inquire about a customer satisfaction notification l05 transmisson oil cooler lines issue pertaining to TSB: 2008-2010 jk Wrangler: transmission oil cooler lines may weep transmission fluid. TSB: 2008-2010 jk Wrangler: transmission oil cooler lines may weep transmission fluid subject: extended warranty -transmission oil cooler lines may weep transmission fluid at the hose to tube crimp joints (7 years or 70,000 miles warranty extension) overview: this bulletin involves installing new transmission oil cooler supply & return line assembly. Models: 2008 -2010 (jk) Wrangler note: this extended warranty bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with 3. 8l engine (sales code egt) and an automatic transmission (sales code dgv) built before March 10, 2010 (mdh0410xx). Symptom/condition: weeping transmission oil cooler lines at the hose-to-tube crimp joints. Diagnosis: if the symptom/condition is experienced proceed to the repair procedure. I was told my vehicle would not be covered by this and I would have to pay for the repairs. If these lines were to burst or open up enough to spray fluid it would ignite off the exhaust manifolds and burn the vehicle to the ground. This has happened to several Jeep owners I have found in my research and one owner had their vehicle burn even after the lines were improperly replaced by a dealership even. My Jeep meets all the criteria in the customer satisfaction notification l05 yet I was told it wasn't covered. This issue happened on January 14, 2014.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Lincoln MKS

The vehicle involved is a 2009 Lincoln Mks. I purchased a mopar vehicle protection plan as my first extended plan from Chrysler for a pre-owned 2009 Lincoln Mks model. I took the vehicle into a reputable Lincoln-Ford dealership to have a few issues resolved. These issues are: 1) bad smelling fumes entering the cabin of the vehicle when the air is on in any mode setting such as the windshield or base mode. The fumes smell so toxic that sometimes it results in nausea and headaches. You have to turn off the air and put down all the windows to air out all the fumes in the car. The smell comes and goes and usually happens when the car has been driven for over 20-30 minutes with the air or heat on. The dealer quickly found the issue and gave me a diagnosis. There was a leak and they even showed me where the leak was coming from. The leak was burning into the exhaust manifold and created harmful fumes which was going into the cabin of the vehicle. I left the vehicle at the dealer because it was not healthy to drive it, especially since I did not want my family going into the car; especially my new born and being exposed to potential nausea, headaches or any illnesses. The car was at the dealership for almost two weeks before an inspector came out to inspect the vehicle. 1) the inspector felt it was not a serious leak and that he qualified it as a seepage and not a leak? this raises a lot of questions on the inspector since I believe that mopar is paying him a percentage to keep the repair costs down by rejecting honest claims 2) the inspectors claims raises questions on whether or not he is truly qualified to inspect this vehicle. If he was doing his job correctly he would have made sense that if the vehicle is seating (not driving), the gasket or seals won't expand causing the heat to shrink the seal or gasket causing the oil to pour out! any professional would know the difference! overall my car was not fixed. This manifold/header/muffler/tail pipe issue occurred Monday, September 30, 2013.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Mazda Cx-7

I purchased a brand new 2007 Mazda Cx-7 in April 2007, the vehicle started experiencing engine problems in September 2007, I was told it may have something to do with the vvt (variable valve timing) and timing chain. The vvt was replaced by the dealership a short time later; however, not the timing chain. After the vvt was replaced my vehicle starting to experience thick white smoke coming out of the tail pipes. My dealership technician advised this was due to a turbo issue with the engine. All of this occurred within the first couple years of my ownership. I have had the turbo repaired (out of pocket expense), as well as the vvt (2 times) and the timing chain it all seems to no avial. The car is revving very high on cold start ups and is now experiencing a code as of the last couple of days that is stating there is a decarbonization issue with the engine that is linked to the timing chain. Of course this is now the 5th time this vehicle engine will be opened up to diagnose one of the known issues that Mazda north America is aware of. I have had this vehicle since 2007, and has just over 120,000 miles on it. I have maintained a very good service history on the vehicle taking it to "reliable" Mazda dealerships in the area where I live. My main concern is Mazda is doing nothing to rectify the issue and it's only a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt or even worse. The vehicle safety is impaired due to unstable engine performance. There is obvious technical issues with the engines for this Mazda engine model. It was 09/19/2007 when this manifold/header/muffler/tail pipe issue happened.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Mercedes Benz E350

The vehicle is a 2006 Mercedes Benz E350. While driving 70 on hwy, check engine light came on, so I immediately stopped and called a tow truck. Mechanic's diagnosis was that the tumble flap was broken in the air intake manifold. The only fix is replacing the entire manifold for $2000 plus labor, tax and gaskets. The flaps are small and could be an inexpensive fix but all dealerships that I called confirmed that the only fix available is to replace the entire air intake manifold. Research tells me that this is a very common problem on this and many other models within the same years. It was 01/12/2014 when this manifold/header/muffler/tail pipe issue happened.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Mercury Grand Marquis

The car involved is a 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis. The VIN of this vehicle is 2MEFM74W8W_. I observed a coolant leak around the thermostat. I found the plastic intake manifold to be cracked around the thermostat and leaking coolant. I made contact with Mercury and found that there had been a recall on the plastic intake manifold in which they would have replaced the part at no charge during the safety recall campaign. I was not made aware of the safety recall and have owned the vehicle since 04/17/02 when I purchased the vehicle used from a Mercury dealership. The dealership would no longer honor this recall although there are still thousands upon thousands of these engines still on the road. The all plastic manifold was replaced with an intake manifold with an aluminum crossover channel for the coolant. I was forced to replace this defective part out-of-pocket at a cost of $800. It would have been more had I not been friends with the mechanic. The vehicle had 102,281 miles at the time of the failure. It was Saturday, June 6, 2009 when this manifold/header/muffler/tail pipe issue occurred.

The car only has 63,000 miles on it. . !. My mechanic told me this was "famous" for this type car & model, and that mishisbishi should know about this! upon further research I found he was correct. I went on line to see ratings for this car and found 4 other owners of this car had the same problem and that was just one page of my research!! my mechanic told me no way should this happen at 63,000 miles! the cost to repair this is approx. $2000. 00. . It is a major repair. Since others have had the same problem, I really feel mishibishi should pay for this repair!!! it is their screwup. And this is unfair to me, the buyer to encounter this costly repair!. The failure date was Thursday, September 9, 2004.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Saturn VUE

The car is a 2003 Saturn Vue. My car has 103,000 on it and has been very well maintained. It suddenly died with no warning while I was driving up a hill. I had it towed to the shop, where they ran a diagnostic. I have a transmission leak, a bad intake manifold that causes the engine to run incredibly lean, and a sensor problem. This car is babied, and with such low mileage should not be experiencing any issues with the intake manifold and the transmission. The sensor I can understand failing, but the amount of issues that this vehicle has had, and the amount of complaints I have seen from other owners of the 2003 Saturn Vue v6 awd is staggering. These are clearly vehicles with issues and Saturn owners should receive some sort of compensation for the amount of money we are putting out to make repairs for shoddy workmanship. It was Tuesday, July 26, 2011 when this manifold/header/muffler/tail pipe issue happened.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Suzuki SX4

The vehicle is a 2008 Suzuki Sx4. After taking my Sx4 into kipo motors for inspection and check for rich fuel and ticking, it passed NY emissions but I was told I needed a $2000 catalytic converter and not to worry about the slight tick. With in 6 months my engine blew up well driving to dinner with my family in the car. Flames shot out of the hood and other drivers reported flames pouring out the bottom of the car after it exploded. Kipo/Suzuki replaced the engine, after assembly two cylinders didn't work. Kipo never heckled any other parts and had to rebuild it again after they found the valves broke causing the engine to explode. Now the car has no power and at 2084 miles on the new engine they say the catalytic converter is stoping the engine from working and due to the closeness of the warranty end they are not going to fix it. The engine exploded in the front. There was a hole the size of my fist in the block behind the catalytic converter. Chunks of the engine block were in the exhaust manifold as well but they say none of this is a result of the engine exploding. I have seen others with the same rich fuel and engine tick and wounded are these ticking time bombs?. The failure date was June 20, 2013.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Toyota Highlander

The vehicle involved is a 2003 Toyota Highlander. The VIN of the problem Highlander is JTEGD21A23_. Head gasket bolts stripped out causing coolant to leak and loss of cylinder compression. This occurred on a Toyota 2. 4 liter engine. This is a common failure mode on these engines due to a design defect. The thread fatigues at the intake side of the engine because the manifold is plastic and there is a rubber insulator between the manifold and block which traps the heat in that part of the block and fatigues the aluminium threads on the head bolts. This happens on many models from 2001-2006 that utilize the Toyota 2. 4 liter aluminum engine. This is a $2,500-$5,000 repair. Toyota has issued a service bulletin on this. I believe they should have some responsibility in fixing this design problem. Engines shouldn't fail at 100,000 miles without cause such as overloading or abuse. I don't have a tow package and have garaged this vehicle. There was no cause and effect. This failure I've come to learn is common for this engine. This problem occurred on Monday, Apr. 14, 2014.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of Volvo S40

The vehicle involved is a 2009 Volvo S40. My wife was driving home from a grocery store 3 miles away. A quarter mile from the house she noticed a burning smell. She thought it was from the outside since brush fires are common around south FL. She parked onto our driveway and noticed smoke rising from around the hood. She took the key off of the ignition and the engine kept running. She called the fire department while a neighbor helped and opened the hood. Immediately smoke started billowing and they observed fire in the engine. Two fire engines showed up and contained the fire before doing any further damage. Most of the visible damage is between the air intake manifold and the air filter housing. On that drive no warning lights came on, the car radio was working my wife said it was uneventful until the she noticed the smoke. My wife was scared and stressed beyond from what she had to go through. The cars warning system did not work, there was severe failure for this to happen on a 4 yr old car. I called the local Volvo dealer and the rep I spoke with was totally unhelpful and did not offer anything. I contacted the Volvo customer service and so far I have gotten a couple of emails . The failure date was 10/22/13.

car   Manifold/header/muffler/tail Pipe problem of BMW 745

I have a 2004 BMW 745i, I noticed a lot of smoke coming from tail pipe when the car is idling/driving. I took it in for a diagnostic at a replicable repair shop, and I was told the valve guide seal's where worn and needed replacement. The problem is that the valve guide seals becomes hard over time and doesn't provide a proper seal for the valve stem's. This allows oil to pass through the valve stem seals and enter the combustion chamber and the exhaust. ( not only does this cause pollution) it damages the cat converter therefore you can not pass a smog test. This is a well known issue by BMW, BMW repair shops, and certified mechanic across the united states. I contacted BMW corporate office regarding the problem, I was then contacted back by [xxx] with BMW executive customer care. I was told I needed to take my car to BMW of ontario to get a diagnostic, because they don't except third party opinions. BMW of ontario contact me to tell me it will be $6,500. 00 because they need to remove the engine and tear it down for inspection. I was later contact by [xxx], who told me that her field manager denied any further diagnostic or repairs on my car. Something needs to be done about this very inevitable issue that happens to 5,6,7 and x series BMW models that are on the road causing nasty pollution.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2000 Jaguar S-type. I work for a auto shop and have a customer that has a 2000 S-type and has had some issues with it. The first time I saw the car it had a misfire and was making a ticking noise. After pulling the engine apart I found that it needed the time chain tensioners replaced. The next time the car came in it had no acceleration and constantly set the fault code air assisted fuel injection motor fault. After disassembling the engine once again, we found felt packing material in the intake manifold that had clogged the #8 intake port in the cylinder head and we also found that the timing chains and tensioners needed to be replaced again. The felt packing comes from the car and is a danger the engine and the lack of acceleration. This is a danger and can cause an accident.
