HONDA CIVIC OIL CHANGE PROBLEM

2007 Honda Civic • 43,000 miles

I will try to be as descriptive as possible. My car seems to be running a little louder than normal. When I start the car after it being off over night or during a work, it starts up and appears to run a little louder and shake a little more. When I start to drive everything feels fine until I release the gas pedal and it almost feels like it drags (kind of like downshifting in a manual transmission but not as harsh). After 15 minutes of driving it doesn't seem to be having the symptoms as bad or I just don't notice them anymore. The car seems a little louder when it is colder outside (I live in Florida so it doesn't really get that cold). When I get home from work and put the car in park, it runs louder, then I will put it back in drive and it is much quieter. I have kept up all most of the maintenance, always got my oil changes, rotated the tires, filters changed. The last time I got my oil change (3 months ago) they mentioned I might need to replace my brakes. I don't want to jump on the brake issue and assume that is my problem because the issue is still around when I am in drive and not accelerating. Let me know if any other information would help!

Have you checked for exhaust leaks?
