I crawled underneath my car today to try and find where my exhaust is making a noise and i'm about possitive that i found the spot, it looks horrible, has anyone else had this problem before?
...some of the images were brightened in photoshop and are a bit blurry, i appologize, but you get the picture. I've only had my car for about 5-6 months and i don't think they have done this while i've had them cause i've heard this sound for a long time. What do you think caused them to do this?
not sure if there is a hole in the patch or not, i'll check it tomorrow if i get a chance, and it's too much work to crop them all, lol, besides, i thought the john deere looked good in the background, lol

The paper thing will work. Or you could just run your hand around the pipes, don't touch them, and see if you can feel a leak. Do I have to say, BE CAREFUL? If you can get it on a lift, walking around and listening should help you spot it.
PS: is that your converter or resonator with the patch?

To find leak:
get a plastic squeeze bottle. Fill with small amount of glycerin soap or children's bubbles, dilute with water. With car cold and exhaust accessable, start car. Squirt soap on suspected area of leaks. If bubbles form, there is your leak!
hey i've been looking into getting some new cats. bavauto has them for $500 and pelicanparts has them for $600. Does anyone know of a better deal than these anywhere? I need some that are affordable, lol. Any help would be great! Thanx!
