Need a pic of your exhaust


Recommended Posts

 

Here's what I'm talking about. Does the spacing in between the mani and the downpipe look spaced too far apart?

 

I'm trying to diagnose a strange noise my truck makes that sounds like a chair rubbing across the cafeteria floor in grade school. It happens when I turn a corner or I'm sitting still idling at a light and blip the throttle.

 

I've gotten four differnt responses from mechanics ranging from the tie-rod is hitting the diff cover to my engine is blown.

 

So what do you guys think about the space in between the two?

I know when I start my truck, and at certain amount of throttle at certain engine speed, the end of my front pipe is rattling on the transmission cross member.

 

See I think something like that is happening on mine. Except I think the noise is coming from that gap that's getting bigger when there's a load on the engine.

From that picture it's hard to tell. Can you snap another looking absolutely strait?

 

I don't think if there was a gap there that it would make the noise you descriped. I could be wrong. :roll:
