I have an exhaust leak...

I'm not to sure how to find it though, I was thinking just having a peice paper and hold it by the exhaust, im almost positive its on the top of the exhaust so I cant really run my hand on top of it.

Re: I have an exhaust leak...

usually if there is a pinhole, there is a build up of black junk around the outside of the hole. Maybe look for a black area on your exhaust.

Re: I have an exhaust leak...

or get someone to stand at one end and cover up the tailpipes with a couple towels balled up or whatnot, forces more out of the leak and easier to hear/find it.

Re: I have an exhaust leak...

Alright sweet, ya theres alot of black on top, guess I should look around there, and the way I can tell is CLEARLY hearing the exhaust come out from the side of the drivers side, especially in my garage.

Re: I have an exhaust leak...

yes, your exhaust leaks out of those two large holes behind your bumper, check those out

do as bane said, we did that to his car before he got the exhaust proper, and you could hear it clearly

Re: I have an exhaust leak...

Alright sweet, it was actually really easy to find, it is where the 2 pipes connect on my H-pipe, I guess when they put the exhaust on they didnt bother to weld it, I just found it by turning the car on and feeling for it on my hand, I got this special exhaust sealent tape Ive had it on for about a month now and it is working perfectly.

Re: I have an exhaust leak...

Yea exhaust sealer tape, it was only like $2 bucks, you wrap the tape around and then it comes with this, like exactly what paper clips are made out of but its just a really big circle of it and you wrap it around the tape to make it stay.
