Not going to lie, I’m pretty noobie when it comes to cars. Recently, I got my girlfriend to buy her first car, a Toyota Corolla 2001 with 92’000km for the price of 1400$. It seem a pretty good deal since it was own by a old man not really using it and always keeping it clean. Everything looked fine exept some rust under the car.
Although, last week it started to make a loud sound coming from under in the middle (approximately where the exhaust pipe is). What had to happen happened, the exhaust pipe broke on the highway. I am not really able to provide the name of the part from where it broke but it is in the middle just after a bigger “pipe” (will post a video and photo).
I am asking your help to give me some tips and to not get scam when I will go to the mechanic.
What are my options here? Change whole pipe? Weld a small piece of pipe? I would like an estimate of what it would cost…
I hope I will be able to help my girlfriend with your tips and suggestions
