Noise coming from rear end!

Not sure if this is where to post this or not. My wife was in a very minor fender bender in which the rear bumper was just barely scratched a little bit.

Well ever since then the car is really loud in the rear end...kind of sounds like something is dragging or like a helicopter is about to take off. It happens even when the car is idle. It isn't a constant noise but happens more often than not. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? I have looked under the car and don't see anything...maybe the muffler was bent a little bit and this is the noise of the gas coming out from the bented muffler?

Anyone have any ideas?? Thanks in advance!!

i thought a tire at first too but it makes the noise even when idle so i doubt that is the issue...what does the exhaust hanger look like? I tried googling it but couldn't find anything

By the muffler, bent shape like a "s" or "l" with a rubber stopper/grommet on the end between both of them. can't miss it if you look under the rear.

I will let you know what I find out. I don't know how such a small bump can cause such a loud noise...I dont think anything could be broken that bad

this could have came loose or tore . This stretches so exhaust can move some with the road conditions ( bumps , etc. ) . It slips on two metal rods , 1 attached ( welded ) to undercarriage and the other welded to muffler itself . This was an issue with our 2000 Chevy PRIZM ( Corolla ) . Overtime the rubber grommmet weakens from the elements and stretches from the torture of pour roads . The grommet had weakened so much that the muffler would move up and down from rough surfaces or bumps , thus the tailpipe would hit on the rear plastic bumper . To test this , grab tailpipe and move up and down to see the play in it , if hits the bumper , that could be the culprit . This is a very expensive item , think I was quoted at about $150 ! So , we decided to just deal with it . GOOD LUCK

I had a 05 Taco that had one break(almost flip my truck one day going fishing) so I took it to a muffler shop and they fixed it for $10.

Where was the bumper hit? Could the exhaust tailpipe have been hit too without you noticing it? If so, the muffler or pipe could have been bend in (toward the front of the car) and be contacting an exhaust heat shield. There is not a lot of clearance for movement of the exhaust pipe side to side or up and down, and if the pipe is bent (even just a little) it may be contacting one of the thin aluminum shields. This could be why you hear it at idle as the tail pipe has some vibration at low RPM's.

Just a thought...

through CHEVY or TOYOTA parts department . I don't believe this part is available at your KRAGENS , A.A.P. , PEPBOYS , etc.. It's not very common part .

yes , it would hit the very bottom of the rear bumper . Anytime I was looking to possibly buy a used Chevy PRIZM ( Corolla ) I would grab the tailpipe to check the tightness of the exhaust by grabbing the exhaust pipe and pull it up and down to see if it would hit bottom of rear bumper . Seems like most of them did this , maybe it was a flaw in design or part . But the more the miles the greater the possibility for weakness of rubber grommet from the elements ( road salt , etc. ) or pour roads or both .

Its a universal part. You dont ahve to get a exact dealer part. Or you could go to any muffler shop they have all different sorts. I changed one on a ford mustang The guy brough his own part he got it at kragens for like 8 bucks. Didnt look like th eone that broke but it worked.

I dont see how a piece of rubber can cost 150 bucks. I mean a motor mount has more rubber and they are no more than 100

Oh yeah btw my job is a service writer. So i order parts and give customres estimates daily.

FYI if you live in the local bay area my shop only uses OEM toyota parts. Every box says toyota including fluids like transmission or coolant.

If anyone needs any services done we have the cheapest prices around and beat nearly everyone. Email me for estimate.

Are you thinking of the same part?

Should be something similar to that. Its really cheap to obtain.

same part , as above . Maybe they were trying to screw me . Just trying to help . Seems like a majority of TOYOTA employees have crappy attitudes as well . Is that part of the crudentials ? Or do you get training for that ? Just called CHEVY parts department and the rubber grommet costs $52 and the brackets are $99 , so apparently the parts person a few years back was trying to sell both parts which would be > $150 with tax . They are special order items .
