Q: Exhaust manifold makes noise

asked by on

The front exhaust manifold makes a loud noise when I drive.

Hi! It sounds as if you have an exhaust leak. The leak is likely from a cracked header, or a faulty exhaust gasket; a smoke machine can be used to help identify the exact leak location. I recommend that a well-trained technician, such as the staff provided by YourMechanic, inspect the source of the exhaust manifold noise.
