Q: Loud motorboat noise when starting

asked by on

On many vehicles, the exhaust joints are held together with bolts that have a spring coil on them and allow for a little movement as the engine twists under load. There is a possibility this coil fell as the result of a broken bolt and the motor boat noise can be a large exhaust leak. I would recommend having an experienced technician look over the exhaust system to detect the cause of the noise.
