I was driving on my way to school this morning, when I noticed my exhaust started making a loud noise. I parked and checked out my car and it seems be be coming from the headers/catalytic converter instead of what I suspected to be my muffler. What are the possible parts that could be causing this noise. Its not a farting noise, its more of a steady load roar when I give the car gas.
Do you

Hi AdamJasonG,

Looks like the exhaust is leaking. It could be due to a cracked manifold, loosened or broken manifold bolts, or a bad manifold gasket.

Remove the exhaust cover and look out for signs of carbon, indicating leaks.
