last night wqe were driving home and suddenly there was a huge explosive
noise accompanied by a yellow flash coming from under the car. The hazard
lights came on automatically. we thought we had blown a tire. Stopped and
checked and all was ok. we could find nothing wrong and drove it home
Well I don't know what exactly happen but the yellow flash is excessive fuel in the exhaust and igniting. The only thing I can think of is a flooding issue, or timing. Wouldn't hurt to take it in to have it checked out. Especially if you happen to smell gas.
I spoke to my mechanic. He agreed it sounded like backfire. Thanks
Exhaust leaks can suck air into the system and provide the oxygen needed for a backfire. The yellow flash under the car tells me that you have an exhaust leak.
