Hello, i have a 2002 chevy camaro V6 automatic with 124,000 miles. Driving to work was normal until i stepped on the accelerator to quickly get into next lane on freeway, and thats when the car got louder. It sounds almost like a motorcycle now. No lights came on dashboard, RPMs are normal. Need to take it to a shop still just wanna get some information so im not clueless when i take it in. I also had engine and transmission oil changed at 122,674 miles.
Have your exhaust system checked.
You have an exhaust leak. Can’t see it from here.
You are going to a shop. Ask why they recommend the repair and if it is something they can show you. If that makes sense then do it. If not get a second opinion.
Concur, rule out exhaust leak first.
Yup, you figured it out. Nice work.
The pipes look in good shape. It looks like the joint simply came apart. I suggest you google “exhaust repair clamps”. Here’s an image of one type.
Took it to a muffler shop, $20 to weld it back on
Good work there OP, you stuck with it, asked for advice, then diagnosed the problem yourself. Excellent.
