Is a car repair in my future? For most drivers, having an engine light come on can cause some initial panic. What does the light mean? Is my car safe to continue driving? What will happen if I ignore the light? These tips will help you know what to do when your engine warning light comes on.
If you have gotten the factory exhaust off, you are pretty much in the clear. You will install your Magnaflow system in the reverse order of taking the old one off. You can start by matching up the resonator section with the flange to the flange on the catalytic converter recycling and bolting them together. They slip the connecting pipe into the resonator pipe and clamp it down with the supplied clamp. This piece also connects to the factory chassis mount you removed earlier. Be sure to secure the hangers into the rubber bushings.

Another aspect of those ads, that very few people are aware of, is the Cobalt gets better EPA fuel mileage ratings than the Aveo. The Cobalt is a larger car, weighs more and has a bigger engine. The engine is the same basic design as the Aveo. Why does it get higher MPG? Because the profit margin is higher!
I hope none of my readers experience this. If do, shop around before running to the auto dealer or the first repair shop. I would also weigh my options before filing an insurance claim. Shop around. Thanks for reading.
