If you have a Hemi you might have a broken manifold bolt that causes a leak that sounds like a tick.

How do I fix an exhaust leak in my 2005 VW GTI Turbo?

Easy: buy or borrow a thermal camera. Start the car, point the camera at the suspect area. the exhaust leak will be obvious. More difficult: check for obvious holes or cracks or loud noise in exhaust system. Easiest of all: take car to a muffler shop, they will shoot you an estimate, maybe for free.

I just fixed my flex pip on my hyundai accent now I have a loud exhaust noise my check engine light is on saying I have an oxygen leak but took it to a mechanic in they told me that I don't have a exhaust...

Take it to a muffler shop-that mechanic must have a tin ear. I thought my Sentra had a small exhaust leak (slightly loud exhaust noise) from a previously fixed exhaust connection. But a muffler shop guy showed me I had a rusted out catalytic converter. I would suspect your flex pipe may still be leaking.

Loss of engine power, loud whistling noise

Exhaust manifold leak? That's not common. You talking about the VVT near the manifold at the top of engine above the power steering pump? Yes indeed, AC Delco is the only one our engines love. 41-103. Obviously you have P0304, what other codes?

Cluch or tranny not shure 89 toyota pickup

Do you have an actual question of a vehicle problem?

If so -what testing has been done.

By the time you need to strip down a trans & go thru it
you also do the flywheel,clutch,brg etc

I think that is what you do

It is old & time for a restoration project you do yourself

Can't afford to pay someone,that is how you learn

I would suggest getting the areas between the cylinder head and the exhaust manifold checked for leaks. Your description sounds like a classic beginnings of an exhaust manifold gasket leak.

I have a tapping in the engine what can be causing it

It's pretty tough for one of us to diagnose from afar without actually hearing it, but here are your possibilities: Lifter noise - low oil, worn - noise comes from upper engine Bearings (main & rod) - again low oil, worn - normally loud from lower engine
Exhaust leak - exhaust manifold and/or gasket - tick from side of engine, gets worse with engine RPMs
I'd have a competent shop look at it for you to get exact fault.

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.
