Default Civic muffler/pipes

Car is a 98 Civic EX coupe. Need to replace the muffler, the pipe that
is attached to the front of the muffler.....it routed over te rear axle,
and the straight exhause pipe at the other end of the muffler. How much
do you figure a shop would charge for this work?

Depends on country your in, the currency you use and the quality you want.
Pick up yellow pages look under muffler shops and ask for heaven's sake.
Call three or four if you like.
Then drive vehicle to the one you think best four your budget.
It ain't rocket science.
Pardon the sarcasm but I am in a rotten mood today. But now I feel better.
Thanks for getting me unwound.
Mike

Despite the sarcasm--it was still great advice.

look in yellow pages and call a muffler shop and ask them... i had a 75
datsun pickup years ago and needed a muffler.. called one of the big
muffler companies that always advertises and was quoted a price of
$150 for the muffler and tail pipe.... i went to auto parts store and
got what i needed for $40 and it took me about 20 minutes to do the
job.. i got a pretty good discount on the parts(when calling for the
parts they quoted $60).. went there and got it for $40...

I have replace both the muffler and the resanator
(the pipe infront of the muffler) The resanator goes
for about $150 -200 the muffler was another $125
In mosst likely hood you have had the resanator
break at the welds, mine has 3 time. Poorly built/designed
by honda in my opinion.

You looking at about a $300 repair all together.

I have a 98 Civic DX and I am on my 3 resanator since
owning the car. I live in NY and the salt and weather
have a field day with a hot piece of metal close to
the ground.


Goodluck with it,
- Jay

Thanks for all the input. After checking a few places for the repair, I
found them to be pretty close in price. Got it done for $215. I live
in S. Florida, so road salt wasn't a factor. So the pipes and muffler
lasted six years since the car was new, so I can't complain.
