sorry for the takig so long. I",m not to good here. Dodge has only got a muffler, not even sure what CEL are or is. This is the 1st truck I've owned n 20 yrs. Never a Dodge, but now my wife has Chysler and daughter a Jeep. So I've got the brands covered. But any way, I'm guessin the Cats are the canisters right off the exhaust manifold??? The dude or Dudes that owned it, since it had two priors, left me wiyh a single in single out to a y then duals. So ttas where I"m at right now
That sucks! I'd go with new cats and a Y-pipe from Magnaflow. What about your muffler? Is it an aftermarket one? If it is you might want to look at putting a stock resonator on your tailpipe if one isn't there already.
No resonator, not sure if cats are even there, not sure what I'm lookin for. Like I said havent had a truck n a long time. The muffler, lol, sounds ok till mds then the bottom falls out. Single in an out then y to duals.
Yeah if ya got no cats and no resonator, it's gonna sound bad. My brother tried that and after riding with him on a 4 hour trip, then back, I told him there was no way I was gonna ride anywhere with him again until he fixed his exhaust.
He put the right cats on his 2009, then went with a Magnaflow muffler and got a new resonator welded on. It still sounds good but don't drive ya crazy in the cab.
Ok, so what are the cans on the side of the exhaust manifold? So, then I need to invest in a cat and at lest a Magna Flow, I here the new Rams are coming with DynaFlow mufflers. Went to the dealer the other day and that's what tech ttold me, there not marked but thats what they are.
Thanx for the info, finally found your reply. I'm new qt this forum deal. I'm n Fl. don't believe we r, but who knows at this point. Any idea what those canisters might b on each side right out the exhaust manifold.
Thanks so much for that info, I had know idea of what was goikg on with the exhaust. I really just need a decent muffler. Like a magna flow or Dynamax. Does that look like some kind of cherry bomb or what. Cuz I'm getting some kind of horrible noise n MDS, like the exhaust is in H2O.
I don't like the sound of the exhaust when the MDS kicks in,so I drive mine in 5TH instead of drive,this disables the MDs.Only about a 1MPG difference.Try it it might disable it on an 08 too.:smileup::smileup::smileup:..Rob
The "cans" just off the exhaust manifolds are the cats, and then after that there should be a y pipe(two pipes merging into one), then you have your muffler thing (it looks like a cherry bomb type thing to me), then a reversed y pipe(one pipe splitting into two) then straight pipe the rest of the way.
To fix your issue, replace the current muffler/cherry bomb with a magnaflow or similar(straight through muffler) and add a small resonator near each tail pipe. That should fix your problem...
Sweet, ya I'm near Orlando. Down here in Ft Pierce or Ft Misery as I like to call it. Nice to meet a fellow Fl, boy. This last guy or the orig. owner of my truck kind of jack up the exhaust like that, but I'm gonna fix her up sweet with exhaust in couple of weeks when I find a good shop in Vero Bch. Thanks for the replies with help.
