Question about 1998 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Car starts to Get Loud at 30-40 mph

I recently had a new flex pipe installed and the car still gets Loud when I get up to 30-40 mph. I had them check to see if the exhaust pipes were sealed to the engine properly and they said yes. Could this be my engine and maybe needs a tuneup or a resetting of the timing? or maybe the converter is bad?..I think there is two of them..there are two pipes going to the engine.

i HAVE A CHRYSLER SEBRING 2001 LXI LIMITED 3.O. MY CAR WAS MAKING A LOUD HUMMING OR SQUEALING WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE THE HARMONIC BALANCER AND A NEW POWER STEERING BELT HOWEVER IT COULD BE THE FLEX PIPE AS WELL OR THE SHIELDS THEY PUT AROUND THE FLEX PIPE THEY RATTLE AND SQUEAL... WHEN THE GET OLD OR DUE TO THE WEATHER CHANGES IF YOU LIVE IN CHI-TOWN BIG POSSIBLITIES THAT IT'S ONE OF THESE. THE HARMONIC BALANCER WILL COST ABOUT $130 AND FLEX PIPE REPAIR NO MORE THAT $80 LET ME KNOW IS THIS WORKS OUT FOR YOU.

GOOD LUCK! FOXY-KIM@HOTMAIL.COM

Still loud


Have you checked the flex pipe section under the engine, and the gasket between the manifold and cat/flex pipe section? Those are two places they usually start to leak from either a blown gasket, or the flex section rusts out under the protective covering.
