Customer Question
Hi two years...

Hi two years ago I had muffler work done on 2005 Malibu today a mechanic said the flanges had ben cut and now I would need almost 2000 work of total muffler etc replaced can less expensive work be done

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? How has your MPG been lately?

152000 and about 20 mpg as usual

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Malibu yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just called place that did previous work and he thought they could help for much less

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It is making noise when idling I can't do $ 2000 at this time
