Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content



Recommended Posts

I read with fear the advice on buying an LS discovering that my Mk1 has a blowing sound from the driver's side exhaust. It's coming from right up near either the catalyst or manifold. I can't feel it but I can sure hear it.

Is this the fabled cracked pipe do you think. If so what should I do about it?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you have found the problem. The frustrating part is that they still hadn't remedied this in the Mk. III, because my '96 did it too at about 65,000 miles. It sounded like an exhaust leak, and it was my mum that first heard it (she drives it most of the time).... it got better as the engine and exhaust warmed, but I hear that is not the case with most of the Mk. I cars with this problem.
