I have a 1996 Honda civic dx that has a crack in the exhaust manifold and before it broke down it made a weird puggy noise like rough kind of knock then dies, at first it wouldn't start so I went and bought a new starter now it starts has the same noise, but after a few seconds it died out. Any answers on what may be causing it to die?
the crack in your exhaust manifold
Well the exhaust headers right on top going through the o2 sensor.
makes sense the o2 sensors is telling the computer the wrong readings because of the crack
Could that be causing the car to shut off while idleing? And also create a wierd knock like noise? Or is it possible that i need new spark plugs?
Okay cool cause i have to replace it for smog and hoping that the sound isnt something worse. Guess ill just find out thanks.
