    J-Pipe has leak at flex-pipe

    So my j pipe is leaking at the flex-pipe, where it attaches to the manifold, is there anyway to fix this without having to buy a new one? The leak is covered up by the shield, so i have not exactly looked at where exactly it is broken yet however the leak is definitely coming from the flax part.

    not sure if you can repair it but I would check the engine mounts as the only 2 j pipe failures I have seen were from broken rear mounts

    I have a jpipe with a good flex pipe part, but the waterbox end has been cut short, above te welds making it unuseable. If u want it, pm me, I can give it to you for cheap

    i work in a power plant and we have custom made flex pipes made for us.
    so check yellow pages for pipe makers they can weld a new flex piece in for you cheaper than a new pipe.
