Possibly you have a leaky or cracked exhaust manifold. After the engine heats the metal expands and creates a larger gap. As the engine speeds up the engine noise overcomes the exhaust leak noise and you don't really notice it much until the vehicle gets in to a hard pull or comes to and idle.

I would like to know what causes the popping sound under my Hood on my 2003 Buick Lesabre only when I am leaving and coming to a complete stop do I hear the Popping Sound and not when its on Idle, Can


Sounds like you possibly have bad motor mounts, causing the engine to shift when you accelerate or brake. One of the mounts is located on the lower driver side toward the front. Another is located on the passenger side and runs from the frame between the engine pulleys to the engine. Visually check to see if the rubber is intact in it. If it is missing or damaged, replace. Bad engine mounts can damage the trans-axle and other components.

Could be something jumping around in the exhaust. Is your catalytic conv in that area?

The manifold gasket is a good guess, as far as driving to the shop if it's otherwise running well, I'd go for it.

Burning smell,check engine light-misfire, rough idle 96 cavalier


Sounds like there is a blown piston, to be sure have a compression test done on that #2 cylinder, if the reading is low, then you'll know.
A friend of mine had a 95 that did simular things only a little more,
it started smoking, dash lights flickered, etc. Finally, he had to get rid of it, the piston rod went through the engine block.
