The baffels in the muffler could be gone or the manifold gasket could be out. You may need a new muffler does it sound louder at the front or rear of the car. If its the rear its your muffler front gasket or the dounut

sounds you have a vacuum leak. Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as replacement as non-genuine are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU

I have a 2002 Silverado. At idle the truck ticks and when accelerating it seems to tick too but faster. The sound is louder under the truck and under the hood. Could this be and exhaust leak?


WEll, it certainly can be an exhaust leak. Take a heater hose and hold one end up to your ear and probe around with the other end. Exhaust manifolds are a big issue, these days.

WHERE TO LOOK FOR EXHAUST LEAK


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.

My engine light came on and car sounds louder


Take your car to Autozone and they will run a free scan to tell you why your check engine light came on.  As for your car sounding louder, might be an exhaust leak.
