Customer Question
Hey, I need to...

Hey, I need to replace my muffler in 97 f-150 but i just want it to be as quiet as possible. What mufflers should I be looking at?

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

470,000, about the same around 17 -19

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I recently replaced the cats, but still need to replace the muffler

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

That's it

Are you looking to replace just the muffler or do you need the tail pipe assembly as well?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
maybe the tail pipe, it in good shape
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

Okay, Walker makes a fair priced muffler that matches the OEM Ford muffler and is as quiet as a new truck. See the link below. They can also get you the tailpipe if needed.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
