Re: exhuast system noise
Yes, They are Regular Bolts. Take some WD-40 and spray on the Bolts and let it set for about an Hour and Spray it on the Bolt heads and Wipe them off. You may need a Wire Brush for this also. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

is the intake pipe on top of engine, not with huge bolts hold it to the exh top rear header tight, many are loose. fix that now.
once you prove all this is good, then bad engine.? by process of elimiation. works.
Check your exhaust system for leaks holes in the pipes or gasket problems at pipe connections and exhaust maniflod It won't be loud if the problem is befind the muffler in front it will be .You can usauly feel the exhuast comeing out if you cheak it right after you start the engine and the pipes are still cold because the exhauts will be hot . Try to pin point ware the noise is comeing from first like the day before .Don't get burned these things get vary hot
The metal shielding around your catalytic converter could be rattling or the rubber donut that holds the rear tailpipe could be bad. When your car is cold shake your tailpipe and see if you can reproduce the noise. If you can your tailpipe donut is likely bad. Three dollars at any auto parts store. If it does rattle when you shake your tailpipe then the heat shield for your convert could be loose. You need to tighten it up another piece of metal between it and the converter to keep it from rattling. If you hear the rattle when you go over bumps too then your exhuast is probably, loose. Crawl under there and stake shaking things, I am sure you'll find the problem
sounds like the manifold gasket is bad, or the exhaust pipe coming from the manifold head was not properly seated. Got back to auto zone and get a repair/maintence manual for your car , and it should help you get the manifold head gasket/muffler assembly back together.
Hello and thank your for choosing fixya.com. As far as your car being hard to start in the morning, you may have a dying batter.Look on the battery for a date (which indicates the date of purchase) There should be a whole on the month, and day of purchase. If there isn't any, have the batter tested. You may need to replace it. Also, make sure that the battery terminals are clean and tight. Make sure that the wires on the starter are secure and as clean as possible as well. Check for frayed or damaged wiring. For the exhaust, it sound like you need to replace the donut in the manifold (exhaust). It's fairly simple to really so long as you can get to it. Disconnect the exhaught pipe from the manifold (should be 2-4) bolts (usually 3) and take out the old donut (if any of it's left) making sure there are nothing left of in the exhuast pipe. Put the new donut in, and bolt the pipe back to the manifold (see repair manual or parts dealer for torque specifications).
