i have a 2000 olds silhouette with 130K on it. While stopped at a red light, the exhaust suddenly became very loud. i believe that it was coming from the front of the vehicle rather than the muffler in the rear. Before this, it would occassionally miss and/or small backfire if in a lower gear other than D. Any ideas on costs?

    sounds like poss head pipe came loose,ck with a muffler shop for est. this needs to be looked at for proper est due to poss broken bolts.if it just came loose maybe 60.00 if bolts are broken who knows
