So my car is suddenly making these strange noises and I have no idea why. I'll try to describe it best as I can.

Whenever I turn on the engine and start driving, what seems like the engine or something sounds louder than usual. The usual sound of the engine being revved and such sound deeper and louder, to the point I can hear it over the radio at times.

My only though is transmission fluid which I will check in the morning but any other suggestions? It's quieter when parked, or not pressing the gas, but otherwise its louder than usual.

Also where can I find a map out of the inside of my hood, like what fluid goes where and such for a 98 Nissan Maxima, but ... I'm a car n00b and dunno what fluids go where other than anti-freeze and oil ... and transsy fluid lol.

it could just be an exhaust leak?

That's probably what it is. Yes, braedon, I have a few on my car. It's noticeable, but not too bad.

I thought exhaust leaks made ticking noises, god damn ... how much does this cost to repair usually, because I'm getting tired of all the problems with this car anyway, but it cost 5000 and I haven't even had it for a full year YET ... that's in a month.

Mechanic. Call a phucking mechanic


No mechanic is awake at 3:53 AM over here which is why I was simply asking for "phucking" suggestions, chill out.

I like my cars to be excessively loud

I had a bad leak in my 'bird though, and it was irritating because 60 degree gm V6s sound like ass

my subaru was straightpiped though, and who doesn't love the sound of a boxer engine

no no no

if you get ticking, then there is something wrong with your head, which is usually a sign your engine is not long for this world

definitely an exhausts leak now this can range from 90-300 dollars aussie,

by the description it sounds like its at the front of the engine, it could just be off its hinge or it could be a hole just under the manifold

if its a hole or off its hinge 90-180 dollars which its mostly the case

are you handy at all?

you can do this by yourself


as a temporary fix, go to an auto parts store, and buy a roll of exhaust tape (special heat resistant stuff for leaks, and buy a few ring clamps, clean the pipe around the leak and apply the tape, then put the clamps around it jsut for added strength, you should never have a problem again


if its a serious leak, just take it to a shop and save some hassle

Depends on where the leak is. If it's a crack in your pipe, you might just be able to get it welded up and sealed for 20 bucks or less. If you are completely ****ed like me, it's gonna cost a grip.
