Check your exhaust manifolds. I had one and the exhaust manifold on the back side against the firewall cracked. Of course it was the one that is hard to get to and not the easy one. You will probably need to remove some heat shields to get a look at it. On mine it was easier to look at from underneath the car. But be sure to check your muffler and exhaust pipe as well for damage or possibly rusted out. Start the car and track down where the noise is coming from. If you end up finding that one of your exhaust manifolds is cracked I recommend buying an OEM one and not an aftermarket one. They will tell you that the aftermarket one might have a lifetime warranty but that does not include labor. I bought an aftermarket one and a few months later it broke and I ended up buying and OEM one and put it on and had no more problems.

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.

After a 45 min highway drive,I get an exhaust smell inside the car. with no exhaust leaks how that possible? on my 2001 grand am 4 cyl 185000 klms

Make sure there are no leaks into the trunk at the rear of the car. When you drive at higher speeds a vacuum is created at the rear of the car and exhaust tends to fill that void. From there it can enter the trunk. Driving with a window open can make it worse.

2001 Ford Focus Flex tube exhaust leak

OK, flex tubes are notorious for leaking exhaust over time due to the overflexing of the tube due to engine mounts not being strong enough over the service life of the vehicle.

One solution, is to take the car to a custom exhaust shop and have them fashion a sleeved exhaust that will not break as easily as the original equipment.

For instance, in my area, we have Midas or Meineke Exhaust centers that can fashion a custom exhaust for the vehicle solving the problem for the life of the pipes, anyway.

Good luck on fixing this problem.

Exhaust smell in cabin of 2001 dodge ram

Is it exhaust or is it a fuel smell? Exhaust, i would say you almost have to have a leak, check the manifolds and the head pipe really well. Check to see if ti even has an EGR valve at the rear of the intake to the top of the intake manifold, it depends on the emissions label it has under the hood, federal or california. If it is more of a fuel smell check to be sure all of the charcole canister lines and hoses are hooked up and not gone or broken.
