Engine making hissing sound


Mix a bit of soap and water and spray near the sound to determine from where the sound is coming, and post more information. If it's a gas car, try not to spray much water on wires like spark plugs or coils. Post information like make and model of car. Engine size, turbo or not, diesel or gas? Not much to go on here. Could be a small vacuum leak or a busted manifold, a bad intercooler, who knows with this bit of info?

I have a 99 expiditon dont idel and exaust pipes turn red


If the exhaust pipes are getting red hot I would suspect that eh exhaust header is drafting in air from bad gaskets missing bolts. I would start by making sure the system is sealed. Next I would check o2 sensors and Cat/s

Hi guys! Own a golf 1.4 carb! 2004, I'm having problems with idel! Heavy on fuel and my compression is low now, I've changed my base plate, set the co,z on my car but still can't seem to get it...


Does exhaust smell like petrol - low on power? If so it's running on 3 or 2 legs, meaning ignition in one of the cylinders is not burning fuel. This causes irregular idle and high fuel consumption.

Low compression might indicate a leaking head gasket, worn cylinder rings. Remove the oil dipstick and check if there's pressure coming from the sump. This indicates worn cylinder rings - loss of compression.

Car died rotton egg smell


Not sure if engine coolant smells like rotten egs when it burns inside the cylinders , but it sounds like you may have blown a head gasket. Coolant and/or oil could be getting inside combustion chamber. Another possibility is that the catyletic converter might have broken up and colapsed onto the screen where it goes into the exhaust. Might give the rotten egg smell and block the exhaust enough to cause backpressure sufficient to cause the engine to run poorly too.
Try putting your palm over the exhaust pipe , if the exhaust is coming out in pulses (pop ,pop,pop) thats normal , if it is just slowly flowing out with no noticable pulses , I would check into the cat converter problem.

Backfiring, rough idel


I would check the exhaust pipe a little closewr. White smoke can also mean a blown head gasket. Check the tail pipe to see if moisture is present. Also check coolant level. A blown head gasket can also cause related problems.
