1998 Camry Exhaust Diagram?

I have a '98 Camry that has an exhaust leak. The leak is coming from a "woven" cylinder that seems to connect the pipe fromthe manifold and the rest of the exhaust. I was looking for a diagram of a camry exhaust to see what this exhaust part is called and whether it is something that can be easily replaced at home. Thanks for the help,
Doug

that's called the "flex pipe" section.. dealershit won't change it by itself- so you're better off going to a mom n' dad shop to get it done- shouldn't be more than $100.

The flex pipe is not sold as a seperate part by Toyota. You will have to purchase the whole exhaust piece, including the catalytic converter if you go to a dealer. I think that part is around $1200 at the dealer. A muffler shop can cut out that rusted out flex pipe and weld in a new aftermarket one. I had this done recently on my 94 Camry at an independent muffler shop. Cost was $150.

I have the same leak or break, would Midas perform this sort of repair? My experience with them has always been they want to replace the entire pipe.

Is there anyway of fixing this in my garage, meaning without welding?

Nope. Who says people don't have welders in their garage? You can pick up an arc(or if you prefer) stick welder pretty cheap these days. Plug it into a socket and you're off; no need to worry about shielding gas like with the MIG or TIG.

You can definitely replace the flex pipe, instead of buying a new system. They just cut the section out (or you can do it with a grinder witha cutting disc) and then weld in a new flex pipe.

Not without welding, and this is not a job on which I would want to try and learn how to weld. It's much safer with the car up in the air. Midas, or any other independent shop should be able to do this repair. Make a few phone calls to muffler shops in your area.

I'm not saying you should learn how to weld with the exhaust, that's what scrap metal is for. Learning how to weld can come in handy at times, like now. Also, they would not weld with the exhaust still on the car, there are a few reasons why. Whoever is fixing it will have to take the exhaust off the car. Depending on models, you may end up removing most of it, leaving only the exhuast manifold. Then you cut on either side of the flex pipe, tack the new one in place and then finally weld it all around. Of course, re-attach afterwards

Simple as that!

This repair is done with the exhaust system still on the car. There is no reason to remove the exhaust system to replace just the flex pipe. It is cut from the system and a new aftermarket flex pipe is welded in it's place.

Canada 2004 camry ehaust question

When I am under the car between the flex piece and the catalitic converter there is a hanger. On the hanger there is a small ventrical (bronze looking) facing the front of the car. What is it? Is there supposed to be a hose that fits over it or is supposed to be open to the air. Have I lost a hose?

The hanger is just a hollow tube. The piece you see is just a larger diameter section added on the end so that the rubber hanger doesn't slip off. You are not missing a hose. It does look kind of like a hose would fit over it, but really, it's just that the hanger is hollow.
