The weld for one of the hangers for the exhaust may be broke or it could be the inside of the muffler falling apart. I would take it in to have a new muffler installed and have them check the hangers while it's on a lift. With the car being a 96, the muffler could use a change considering it is most likely burned out.

Actually the damage is internal - one of the baffles inside the muffler has failed. You will have to replace it.

Have the engine properly inspected as it may be a engine failure due to big end failure causing a hole in the engine block.

Loud brake noise in 97 buick lesabre


When you had the drums off, did you inspect the shoes for excessive wear? And How do the drums look? Are they grooved? Can you be more specific about the loud noise. Does it sound like a grinding noise, or a screeching or pulsating noise. Is it lower pitch or high pitch?

This type of noise is likely to be a universal joint that is worn out in the drive line. have a shop put it on a lift and inspect the joints.

My 924x4 make a loud noise at the front end when turning right on unevenground


Check engine mounts, Check the hub that retains the wheel bearing and hub assembly to the steering knuckle to make sure the bolts are tight and have not backed out.

Then inspect the front suspension for worn bushings, broken anti-sway bar links, and broken springs and or shock mounts.

Also look for damaged CV joint boots. Especially the inner plunge/Rzeppa joint. If a boot is damaged, remove it and clean/inspect/replace as needed. The outer as well. but check the inner for excess play and inspect half shaft for damage or straigtness.

Air conditioning fan makes loud noise the faster you ru it.


Concerning your broken vent -- this can be caused by a broken linkage or a malfunctioning servo motor as well. these vent have air ducts the sway back and forth to adjust the dual air flow function. if the servo o linkages are malfunctioning or not connected for some reason, it will not allow total control of the air flow and temperature range. Now, if you have a combination of a flow error and temperature error as well, thai can be caused by a combination of the two.

In this case, you will need to inspect the linkages as well as the servo motor function as well. in addition, i would test the air temp sensors for there operational value. they control the temp when you adjust the coll or hot function.

Concerning the Loud noise coming from the blower fan---

This issue can be caused by a misalignment within the blower housing or, it can also be caused by some minor damage within the motor itself, causing it to rotate in a erratic manner, in return, forcing it to rub against the housing itself. the best solution here is to extract this blower fan housing and inspect for lose fan propeller and motor stability. replace parts accordingly.

PLease rate and have a great day:)
