My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This indicates that there is an exhaust leak on your vehicle here.This is usually due to a damaged exhaust pipe or manifold leaking or loose connections or a leaking exhaust gasket.What needs to be done is to have the exhaust checked over for any leaks and if any leaks are found the leak found will need repaired to correct this issue here,Most common are leaking exhaust manifolds or where the pipe connects to the manifold.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
