Question about 2004 GMC Envoy
Exhaust leaks are not typically a high pitch or a whine. a restricted catalytic converter can make these sounds. an exhaust backpressure test can be performed to determine this - this is done by removing the front oxygen sensor and threading in a specialized pressure gauge. more than exhaust, i would suspect a belt driven accessory bearing, ie alternator, ac compressor, etc, or pulley bearing. this can be determined by removing the built from the engine and starting it briefly. if the noise is gone, you know the problem lies in the belt area. at this point a stethescope is useful to determine which pulley is causing the problem, or, with the belt still off, spin all the pulleys and try to wiggle them to see if there is any binding, noise, or side to side movement. also, check the power steering fluid, if it is low it can cause a noise like this. good luck!

Its deffinitely a leak from the exhaust,, unless is your getting black smoke then its the convertor..
to fix u need a ramp and a gas welding plan,, and brass rods
1.) place car on ramp..
start vehicle and rev
2.) you will notice a place on the exhaust that smoke escapes from,, thats the hole
3.) brass weld it shut..
