Thanks, ***** ***** you have had a muffler internal baffle failure or there is a large leak somewhere in the exhaust system at a gasket, joint, or weld that is allowing exhaust to escape from a source other than the tailpipe. Look at the exhaust manifolds all the way to the back of the muffler for black soot that would indicate a leak.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
