Question about Blueair Blue Air 402 Smokestop Particle Filter Air Purifier
I HAVE A SUV , ISUZU RODEO LS 2001 V6 136000 MILES.
EXHAUST IS LOUD LATELY AND WHEN I START IT ,SOMETIMES DIES RIGHT AFTER.
WHEN I START IT I PRESS THE GAS AND GET RPM A LIL HIGH AND I CAN BACK UP AND DRIVE IT, BUT EVERY TIME I GET TO A STOP SIGN OR RED LIGHT AND I HAVE TO LET GO THE GAS AND PRESS THE BREAK WHILE IN DRIVE ,THE CAR DIES.
SOMEBODY TOLD ME THAT IT MIGHT BE THE FLEXPIPE, I LOOK UNDER AND IT SEEMS LIKE THE Y PIPE (I DON'T KNOW IF THAT Y PIPE OR FLEXPIPE IS THE SAME OR PART OF IT, BUT IT'S DEFINITELY PART OF THE ENTIRE EXHAUST UNDERNEATH OF THE SUV.) HAS A NET THAT GOES AROUND THE PIPE AND IS OLD AND ALMOST BROKEN. I THINK THAT LIL NET IS PART OF THE Y PIPE.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
THE LOUD NOISE DEFINITELY COMES FROM THERE FROM UNDER THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER AREA UNDERNEATH.
SOMEBODY TOLD ME THAT IT MIGHT BE THE CATALITIC CONVERTER?
I went to my mechcanic the same day my engine started to make the same loud noise that you are talking about. he said that it was the flex pipe. just this morning (5:30am 8/3/09) i went to dunkin donuts for my morning coffee and while waiting in line, my car just stopped running. like you said, when you take your foot off the gas and press the break, the car stops. no doubt about it, it is the flex pipe. im sure by now you got your car fixed but i thought that i'd share my car troubles with you :)
