What noise is this from my engine?


Its hard to tell from he video, but it sounds like an exhaust leak. You have a 3,0 v6? Sometimes the studs break on the manifold cat where it connection to the cylinder head. They also tend to crack the manifold cats around the body of he converter near the top.

What type of noise do you hear if flex pipe on exhaust goes bad


Like any exhaust leak, it will be noisier. When the car is started, and before the exhaust gets too hot, put your hand along the pipe and feel for exhaust air being pushed out. You don't have to touch it, just feel close for an exhaust leak. If it's leaking, you should feel it.

To me antifreeze smells like cat wee but look for oil leaking from there on to the exhaust. I would assume something is leaking on to the exhaust then burning off

First, your oil consumption could possibly be a bad PCV Valve if it sticks open, it will **** oil out and pass through air filter, engine and out through exhaust w/little or no smoke. The whining noise sounds like a vac leak, check all small vac lines in and around intake manifold. A vac leak could also be contributing to your oil consumption problem.

Sounds are one of the hardest things to figure out without hearing them. Check to see if the exhaust system is hanging lower than it should, if it is it maybe hitting something as you drive and has probably broken a hanger which a muffler shop can fix for you. Also you can check to see if it is an exhaust leak by cupping your hand making a seal over the tailpipe with the vehicle running. Do this check right after the car has been started, be careful not to hold the pipe or burn yourself sometimes a rag in your hand can be helpful. If there is pressure against your hand your exhaust should not have any leaks on the other hand if there is a leak the noise you hear should change and there maybe suction on your hand. Suction=Leak Pressure blowing away from the tailpipe=no Leaks

Ticking/Tapping when car starts but goes away???


I had what sounds like the exact same problem. It was an exhaust leak from the left (driver's) side exhaust manifold. This engine has a history of the manifold bolts breaking and causing the exhaust leak. The engine is also used on some Dodge vehicles. It sounds like a tick and I almost mistook it for a bad lifter. I took it to the local Jeep dealer who confirmed the exhaust leak. I replaced the left manifold completely and replaced bolts/gaskets on both sides (left/right) and it fixed the problem. Be careful, as the dealer tried to gouge me on the price. You are looking in the ball park of $600 parts/labor. I got parts for $120 and it took the better part of a work day to do the job.

best way to find a vac leak is get a can of engine start, with the engine running spray it around the intake but not into it, be carful not to get any on the exhaust. If there is a leak the engine revs will increase due to the engine start being sucked in.

The sound you are hearing is an exhaust leak. Sounds like a ticking noise, goes away when driving, but can be heard when sitting. You probably have a bad manifold gasket, or loose clamp or broken weld on exhaust. Best way to tell is start it up and listen as to find leak. Or take to a muffler shop and have them repair it.
