1999 Honda Accord EX
approx 111K miles
The original thread seems to be describing exactly what my car is showing right now. Although he never posted back to share what eventually happened to his car.
My car is producing an extra roaring noise that is very noticeable between 20 40mph. The car seems to be still ok and performing as good as I expect it to do. I do not notice any difficulty in handling or during acceleration.
I tried to visually check the exhaust pipe from where it's connected to the engine to the catlyctic converter to the muffler all the way to where gas exits out. I was looking for any sign of rusting metal, broken gasket or leaking holes along the pipe but did not see one.
What could be producing this roaring sound? You have mentioned heat shield and I have read somewhere that heat shiled is a common problem for hondas at mileage like mine. I am not really sure what this heat shield looks like. Could you please lead me to the right direction?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
