why is my galant engine so loud when accelerating?
when pushing the gas petal/acceleraing, the engin is just loud! Its a 4 cyl. Sounds like a muscle car and its not the muffler. When I reach desired speed, it levels out and is quiet again. I know acceleration can produce more noise in any car, but Ive never hear an engine this loud. The car runs great.
possable bad harmonic balancer,not sure take to your local mechanic for a check.
Could also have a small leak in the manifold or one of the pipes. Not all loud exhaust noise is caused by muffler alone. I would have the exhaust system checked out completely.
another thing you can ceck out it the hedder! if there is a small hole it will sound like it is comming from the engin and it might loose a little bit of acceleration
