My 98 GMC Jimmy has had a rattle in the exhaust for a couple years. Now its
getting worse and I am going to have a new muffler installed. I took it to a
local shop. They can put one on that meets original specifications or a
universal muffler. My concern is engine damage or fuel economy if the
universal has more back pressure. The universal is $69 verses $99.
Money is short not worked in over a year. Social Security as is true with
80% of the claims has denied me and I have to appeal it with an attorney and
that will take another 1 or 2.
My question is will the cheaper universal muffler cause engine damage or
