It could be the exhaust baffles inside the pipe have given away from its spot weilding whn new, this is due to rust and off course usage.
Try to kick the exhaust pipes (gently and see if theres the same kind of nosies you get when you ride and cruise.

Why is there muffler noise?


Could be a loose element in the muffler that vibrates at certain engine RPM. Or a small hole in the muffler. Sometimes the problem is as simple as a loose clamp, either a clamp that holds the muffler to the chassis or a clamp that joins two exhaust pipes. A loose clamp can allow the muffler or pipe to vibrate against the frame. Clamps are cheap - a lot cheaper than a new muffler or exhaust system.

Micra K13 Loud Noise at Higher Speeds


I've just bought a K13 Nissan Micra and it doesn't sound quite right. The noise I hear also seems to be coming from the back but it sounds like when you chop down a gear in a manual going down a hill and the engine revvs, well this is the noise I get in the automatic speeding up and slowing down, even just cruising at a steady speed. Any ideas people? Apart from this noise I love this car.

Vibrating noise coming from the muffler. It seems like there is a loose part, but I have examined and found nothing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


If it sounds "tinny" it is most likely the muffler heat shield. Check the exhaust and muffler clearance to all heat shields to make sure there is at least a 1 inch clearance between the components. Make sure no hangers are broken that would allow the exhaust to move about.
good luck

I can feel friction while driving above 15 mph.


If you have a bad wheel bearing then you will have a vibration that you will notice. If that is the case then you have a bad wheel bearing.

If you had a hole in your muffler it would be loud all the time and be even louder upon acceleration. You could check this first by getting under your car while its running and see if exhaust is coming out where it shouldn't be.

Loud & smoky smell


could be open at the top of the muffler .......or may be a flange connection between the headers and the intermediate pipe or the connection along the seam or to the muffler

you will need a light and with the vehicle running {{Visually Inspect}} for smoke or louder noise to seclude the area /s of this issue .

Loud muffler noise up front of vehical.what is


If the noise sounds like your muffler, but isn't coming from the area of your muffler, then you have an exhaust leak upstream from the muffler.

From the front of your muffler, follow the tubing forward to the catalytic converter, then forward to the engine exhaust manifold.

If you start with the car sitting for a few hours to make sure it's cold, you can use your hand to feel for blowing leaks while the engine is running, but chances are you'll be able to hear it. be careful of the catalytic converter itself, as it heats up fast, so check that first.

Once you've found the leak, the fix depends on the emissions laws in your state. If you have none, and the leak is in the middle of the pipe, you can buy pipe patchers (metal preferred) through auto parts stores or catalogs/websites. If you have strict emissions laws, or the leak is at the junction of the catalytic converter and pipe, you'll need to replace the failing part.

Loud noise (like a motorcycle) coming from 1994 Nissan Murano


check your exhaust system and your muffler. a noisy fuel pump doesn't make sense, especially because a new one didn't change anything. if your muffler even has a tiny hole in it, it would make immense amounts of noise. the fastest way to check it (and you have to be very careful here) is to cover the exhaust pipe entirely with your hand RIGHT after starting the car (so it's still cold) if your hand is pushed off by a lot of force building up, then your exhaust is fine, if your hand can stay there with no resistance, and the noise gets louder, there is a leak in the exhaust system

Rattling noise when applying gas,sometimes when idling in park.Maybe muffler/drivetrain vibrations No noise cruising


You just might not hear the noise when it is at speed or the engine vibrations are not at the right frequency to cause the resonance.
I'd check the heat shield around the catalytic convertor; they are notorious for doing this and we have one rattling currently too!
