View Full Version : just making sure (another noise issue)

12-12-2007, 11:41 AM
My car has always been quiet.. but in the past 2 months it sounds like I am developing an exhaust leak. Its def coming from the front of the car and its louder with the hood open. If I do a lot of down shifting and rev-matching the car tends to make a lot of popping noises/burbling. It sounds like its getting gradually getting louder also over time. I'm assuming its an exhaust leak, but since its coming from the front of the car could it be a bad gasket or something also? Let me know what you think.

edit: its loud enough now that people think I have an aftermarket exhaust.. I'm just like.. "yea its the shittiest exhaust you've heard right"

Check the flexible section of the downpipe. At least thats where mine broke some months ago.
