My car recently started making a loud engine noise when I drive it or start the engine, even when I am idling. It sounds like a sports car. Usually it revs and idles quietly.
<br/> I took it to the dealer and they said I had a crack in the exhaust pipe. They said I would need a whole new exhaust pipe assembly and 2 exhaust gaskets.
<br/> I don't know how big the crack is.
<br/> Do I really need a whole new exhaust pipe assembly? Is this something that can be repaired with a weld? What do you recommend and what experiences have you had with this?
<br/> What kind of cost would a repair be?
