    This sounds like an exhaust leak, most likely the exhaust manifold gaskets. You can get an estimate on this repair here: http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=3655
    and find a shop to perform the repair here: http://repairpal.com/directory?address=60160&car_brand_names=Buick
    The shop will need to inspect this first to diagnose the problem.
