Left side as in drivers side or passenger side? An easy way to check is to have a buddy shove some rags in the tailpipes while you try to feel for air coming out of the flanges (be careful not to touch the exhaust).

Could be a spark plug coming loose, a problem in the head (engine head, not your head lol), bad wrist pin, exhaust leak...etc... etc... you definitely what to get that checked out. Could be very bad. But hopefully not.

Yeah I saw your other post about the Fox. To be honest, I've got a 2000 GT and a 90' GT, and the New edge is leaps and bounds better than the Fox. As far as handeling, performance., etc....etc... But the reason why I got the 90' was because I have a soft spot for that generation. And you're right, they are different!

Oh man, I swaped a t-5 into my Fox, and got rid of that aod slushbox. Like most people say, an auto (built) is better for the drag strip, but call me a control freak, cause I like deciding what my car will do. Lol

.. Let your car sit for a few hours before attempting that for your safety .. And I wouldn't suggest you clog up your exhaust.. You'll really have your self a serious ticking noise .

If you have aftermarket manifolds then most likely the bolts have backed out because no one buys the expensive arp locking header bolts ..

Just make sure everything's cool, and start it up and rev it while someone feels around the headers with their hands ..

Those bolts always come lose ,

That's your problem if you LUCKY
