Hey, I noticed that my 93 Tempo has been getting louder and louder lately. When it's idling, it makes a sputtering kinda noise, that seems to be coming from under the front driver's seat/passenger's seat area.
When I hit the gas (even lightly) it gets REALLY loud. Almost as if I have no exhaust pipe or muffler at all (I do though, so thats not the problem
). I'm thinking it might be a loose connection from my catalytic converter to my exhaust pipe (friend suggests it might just be a bad converter).
I have also noticed that when I start up my car, even with the windows closed and no vents blowing, that I can smell a little exhaust (can only smell it for a minute or two, until I start driving).
Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
