Too much pressure in the system. I suspect you have a clogged catalytic convertor. Was the check engine light on recently and you had misfire codes that you ignored? Raw fuel sent to the exhaust will clog a convertor pretty fast. Time to have exhaust work done...https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t561_ds512410
