Check your exhaust system for leaks holes in the pipes or gasket problems at pipe connections and exhaust maniflod It won't be loud if the problem is befind the muffler in front it will be .You can usauly feel the exhuast comeing out if you cheak it right after you start the engine and the pipes are still cold because the exhauts will be hot . Try to pin point ware the noise is comeing from first like the day before .Don't get burned these things get vary hot

Why am I hearing this exhaust sound under my car? It sounds like a sound that should be coming from my tail pipes but under the car.


Sounds like you have an exhaust leak. Take it to your local exhaust, or mechanic shop. They should be able to fix it for pretty cheap. Please rate this. Hope this helps, James Booth

Screeching sound at the back of engine at the top of head


Check all the bolts and fastenings for the heat shrouds around the exhaust manifold to make sure they are there (and firm). If you can undo them without snapping them, take the shrouds off to check for gravel trapped in that area. It could also be a failing cat converter, but a lot less likely. My next step would be to remove the rocker cover and have a look......

A lot of white smoke coming from tail pipe.


Sounds like the bearings in your turbo, or your return pipe for the turbo is blocked and oil is building up to the point of leaking out the bearings into the exhaust.Let me know :)

Loud engine whine (like a jet noise) from 2002 subaru forester


Have you crawled under the vehicle and personally inspected your exhaust line from manifold to tail pipe? The roaring sound usually occur when there is a hole in the exhaust line. I had it happen to my forester before. A hole half the size of a dime made my subaru sound like my old 74 chevy pickup.
