exhaust leak

  1. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a check engine light on, wondering if a bad exhaust leak can trigger it? Don't know of any other possible obvious causes. She doesn't run hot, exhaust smoke isn't black or anything, starts on a dime and runs great with good compression. Oil level is good. Hmm. What about oxygen sensors?
  2. C900 Workshop
    On startup, and maybe a little bit at idle, I'm getting an exhaust smell in the cabin. I looked around and couldn't find anything, and so eventually took it to a shop where they smoked it. They claimed they could not find a leak, and so I am back to square one. Any ideas, something that could...

    Seems like the exhaust is leaking from somewhere where the cat seals with the rest of the exhaust. I bought a new gasket for the rear of the cat and a new sealing ring for the front. I cant tell from the bentley but does the cat just drop out once its unbolted? or will it require moving the...

    Here is a photo of the issue. As you can see I have a crack on the down pipe connected to exhaust manifold. This whole section is connected to the catalytic converter. I replaced the intermediate pipe... meaning its welded on to this whole piece (mechanic welded on). I don't know how to weld and...
  7. 9-5 Workshop
    I just noticed a few days ago that there is exhaust noise from under the drivers side when the car is first started. I just noticed it so I scheduled an appointment with the exhaust shop in town. But yesterday, after my daily commute I noticed that there was no exhaust leaking noise. It seems to...

  9. 9-5 Workshop
    While a friend had my 9-5 wagon over the summer (I work on boats in the summer and ski industry in the winter) it required a new oil pan, maybe she hit something, maybe the oil pan drain plug was over tightened. Either way: pretty blond girl brings my Saab into 'the only shop in town' that...
