If you’re looking to get your new car tuned up, you’re going to want to make sure you’re not putting it through the paces of a car with a problem.
The more a car’s been driven, the more likely it is that it’s been affected by noise.
“When I first started driving, I would go in and have a look at a car that was really hot and then I’d be like, ‘Oh, this car has a problem with noise,'” says John Echols, owner of Echol Engine Works in St. Petersburg, Florida.
“It’s like, this is just a hot car, but I can’t see how this can be that loud.”
It’s a common scenario, says Echuls, who says his company has seen a decline in the amount of noise complaints that he hears from his customers over the years.
“Most of our customers, they’re not even going to tell us what it is,” he says.
“We’re not going to ask them.”
But if you’re in the market for a new vehicle and want to know what kind of noise it’s made, you can use a noise meter to check out the quality of the car you’re buying.
“You can use your smartphone, your phone’s microphone, a microphone, and a camera,” Echoll says.
That way, you don’t have to take a ton of pictures of your new vehicle.
The best way to find out what noise is making your car is to take the car to a professional, like a car mechanic.
“They’ll look at the engine and see if there’s any problem,” says Eichols.
“If there’s no problem, then it’s probably not a problem.”
He suggests you take the vehicle to a mechanic and get a test drive.
If the noise is still there, then there’s probably a problem that needs to be addressed.
If it’s still there and the vehicle is running fine, then the problem is likely related to the engine’s compression settings, not the vehicle’s design.
If that’s the case, Echolls suggests you get a new engine or a car to run it on.
“The engine has to be a low-cost, low-compression engine, and they should run in your local, local, high-performance engine,” he said.
If you find a problem on your vehicle, you’ll want to check the car’s exhaust system to see if it’s leaking or leaking in your exhaust pipe.
“Check out the exhaust,” says James, who also sells engine modifications and maintenance on his website.
“That’s the easiest way to look at it.
If there’s something that looks bad, you want to take that and look into it.”
If it does, you might want to look into replacing the exhaust and its piping.
If not, you could look into modifying your exhaust.
“I’ll look into exhaust modifications,” says John, who adds that he’s also heard of a few people who had problems with the way they got their engine running.
“Maybe the engine was in good condition and they just didn’t have the right amount of compression,” he adds.
“Some people have said that they have a bad exhaust that leaks, so maybe that’s why the engine doesn’t run.”
There are a number of different types of exhaust, depending on the engine that you have, and Echolson says you’ll probably want to do a lot of research before buying a new exhaust.
That includes looking at what the factory has done to improve the quality and safety of the exhaust system.
“In the last couple of years, there’s been a lot more attention paid to this,” says David, a car repairman from St. Louis, Missouri.
“And so, we’ve had some really good improvements in the last few years, so we’ve been able to improve things.”
But don’t expect a simple exhaust modification to get the job done.
“A lot of people that are modifying their cars to be quieter will end up getting very expensive,” says Mark, owner and president of Mark & Mark Repair in St Louis, Illinois.
“What they’re doing is basically buying the same engine and going from there.”
Mark says you need to get a brand new engine to work with your car’s original exhaust system and that he does a lot to ensure the engine he sells has a properly functioning exhaust system, including installing a new system filter and a new intake manifold.
“At least, I’m trying,” he explains.
“So I try to make it as simple as possible.
You can see how much I put into my exhaust and I’m happy with that.”
If you want a better idea of what the new exhaust system will look like, Eicholson suggests you check out his site and the exhaust video he made on YouTube.
