If the noise sounds like your muffler, but isn't coming from the area of your muffler, then you have an exhaust leak upstream from the muffler.

From the front of your muffler, follow the tubing forward to the catalytic converter, then forward to the engine exhaust manifold.

If you start with the car sitting for a few hours to make sure it's cold, you can use your hand to feel for blowing leaks while the engine is running, but chances are you'll be able to hear it. be careful of the catalytic converter itself, as it heats up fast, so check that first.

Once you've found the leak, the fix depends on the emissions laws in your state. If you have none, and the leak is in the middle of the pipe, you can buy pipe patchers (metal preferred) through auto parts stores or catalogs/websites. If you have strict emissions laws, or the leak is at the junction of the catalytic converter and pipe, you'll need to replace the failing part.

Car drives good and smooth, new tires on car but when I aclerate car sounds loud like truck or motorcycle


Could be they did something when they changed the tires, or you have since poked a hole in the muffler, or knocked some rust loose exposing a hole in the muffler "OR" it is the tread noise from the new tires (cheap tires will do this)

2005 Cadillac CTS is making loud noise, sounds like it's coming from underneath the car.


-Muffler pipe connector could be loose.
-Could be a "hole"
And depend on how many part need to replace or just tight down.
-It could run from 150-400 (If replace the whole muffler line, it'll
go up to 800)

Exos pipe loud noise


That most often happens when there is a big hole in the muffler or exhaust pipe somewhere. Visit a muffler shop.

When driving my 2000 Olds Bravada, it has a loud roar noise that sounds like when a semi truck is taking off before the gears are shifted. Transmission shifts easily into gears, just this loud roar noise...


If there's a loud roaring noise all the time, then your muffler probably has a hole in it, time to get a new full or partial exhaust pipe.

If the noise goes when it changes gear, then you've probably got a gear box or thrust bearing problem.

I can feel friction while driving above 15 mph.


If you have a bad wheel bearing then you will have a vibration that you will notice. If that is the case then you have a bad wheel bearing.

If you had a hole in your muffler it would be loud all the time and be even louder upon acceleration. You could check this first by getting under your car while its running and see if exhaust is coming out where it shouldn't be.

There does not have to be a visible hole for these symptoms to occur. You probably do need a new muffler. The rough idle sould subside when the new muffler is installed.

Very loud sound when driving as though muffler not functioning. Drivability okay otherwise. Service Dept can"t see me for a few more weeks and not sure if it's safe?


You should be okay for short trips . I think the muffler went out has a hole or leak.
The noise is going to get louder and louder if it is the muffler.

Terrible Front End noise


Good Day,
It would make sense that it is suspension related as it does not make noise at idle but going down the road it does. I would lean towards it being a bad wheel bearing. Does it sound like it's coming from one side or the other? Also how many miles on the car? Does it get louder when the wheels are turning?

You can check the bearing easily by jacking up that wheel and moving it side to side and up down checking for play, a little bit of play is normal.

Hope this helps and Good Luck
