Silencing a Loud ExhaustExhaust systems are very resistant to temporary fixes due to their heat and locale. If there is a hole in the exhaust have it patched or replaced, If the muffler no longer quiets the engine Replace it, If your header is leaking Get a new gasket and install it, Nothing else will work for more than a short time. An exhaust leak is an automatic fail on emissions testing, and carbon monoxide from the leak is dangerous. When replacing mufflers use the oem model they are quiet enough, aftermarket silencers cause excessive back pressure ( more than the muffler and Cat converter are already giving you) and will hurt performance and gas mileage.

Loud exhaust noise from the front end is usually caused by one of several problems. The exhaust manifold gasket could be blown, the doughnut gasket could be bad, or there could be a crack in the exhaust itself.

Listen to it. if it is making loud noise you will hear it... assuming by noise you mean sound wave vibrations within the range of human detection...

It is possible that a part of the EGR valve has fallen out. This will cause a very loud exhaust noise.

The loud noise is probably attributable to a bad exhaust system.

Loud engine noise is usually a result of a hole or disconnection in the exhaust manifold or muffler.
