Q: Exhaust sound

asked by on

The exhaust is not sounding right.

The exhaust would need to be inspected to determine the cause of the noise; it could be coming from the muffler, or indicate a problem with piping, or the converter. I recommend that you have a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the exhaust to find the source of the noise, and recommend the best path to repair.
