Last week I took my 2000 corolla (95k miles) in for major repairs.
The following parts were replaced:
- Gas tank, seal, hose
- Left front wheel bearing
- Valve cover
- Spark plugs
- both front struts
- sway bar links and bushings
Now when I accelerate (1500-2800rpm), the engine is really loud. It’s like the exhaust is muffled (sounds like a jet engine). It only happens when accelerating 1500-2800rpm. It sounds like it’s coming from the rear (haven’t pin pointed it yet).
I was thinking that it’s the gas tank “covering” the exhaust pipe/system. Any suggestions on what it could be?
