Probably a leaking exhaust manifold or front pipe. could possibly be welded for fairly cheap. try meineke, they have welded exhaust components on one of my cars before. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. even if the welder does a great job, sometimes the weld doesnt adhere well and it will break again. hope this helps! (ps, if it doesnt work but you know where the leak is coming from and you need a replacement, check and

All of a sudden my engine sounds like a diesel, never did that before, someone said it needs a water pump, anyone hear of that?

Water pumps go bad and begin to leak water. If that is not the case (and bad water pumps rarely make a loud noise unless the bearings went really bad) I would check to see if the exhaust manifold is cracked by listening with the hood open to see if you can locate the noise in the area where the exhaust comes off the engine block.

Like motor cycle noise near muffler area

This kind of noise usually indicates an opened area in the exhaust system. You can find the trouble spot by looking at your exhaust system from front to back. You will see a darkened area around any exhaust leak that looks like ash. If this is the case take the car to a reputable muffler shop and get it fixed, you are probably due for a new muffler. GOOD LUCK.

There are several areas to check for possible exhaust leaks. i will list them below.

1. Exhaust manifold gaskets - This will be the most common area. There is a gasket that separates the block from the exhaust manifold. these gaskets can fail, thus, causing a exhaust leak at the manifold.

2. Lower manifold gasket(donut gasket) - This will be a possible leak spot as well. This small circular gasket is placed in between the upper exhaust pie and the lower side of the manifold. It basically separates the pipe from the exhaust manifold.

3. Exhaust pipe - The entire pipe can rust overtime, thus, creating small holes along the pipe structure. These holes will cause the exhaust to leak ,thus, filling the vehicle will moderate fumes and causing louder than normal engine sounds during revving.

4. Muffler - This component can also deteriorate to the point that it cannot filter out the noise. It will also cause leaks as well.

You will find the leak in one or all of the areas stated above in the list.

95 nissan quest - strong smell of exhaust in the cabin area

The exhaust leak is almost always broken studs on the exhaust manifolds. It makes a tick noise when cold and usually goes away when the engine warms up. After a year or so, the noise doesn't go away.

Your heater-a/c air intake is at the base of the windshield through the screen on the passenger side. WHen the exhaust leaks from the manifold, the exhaust gas gets sucked into the air intake.
You can put the heater in recirc mode and it will draw air in from inside the car instead of though the outside air intake. You can't leave it in recirc for long in winter or your car will get ice or fogging on the windows from too much humidity. Take it off recirc after 10 minutes.

Loud noise from exhaust front end ..check engine light on dash permanent display, hyundai accent gsi 2001 manual says emission problem..make appointment with dealership, can't afford at moment...I...

Start the car open the hood. with the hood open listen and smell for the leak. Probably the frt exhaust manifold leaking. Independent mechanic can repair just as easy. No need for dealer. If the leak is bad enough you will smell exhause leak. Look for the area with the greatest amount of noise.

Engine noise

If it is not a knock then it might possibly be an exhaust leak, I have one on my Civic that sounds like engine tapping.
