    Unhappy Heeeeelllllpppp!!!!

    Hey you guys!!!!
    BIIIIG question
    Just recently about 2 weeks ago, sometimes when I'm slowing down I hear a sound which sounds like a back fire. It's not because, it's not coming from the exhaust. The sound seems to be coming from the right side and I've pin pointed exactly when. It happens typically when I'm stepping on the break but not every time just randomly
    Annnnnnny ideas I love my baby I just want it to be healthy!!!!

    Can you pinpoint at least which system its coming from (brake, suspension, engine, trans. etc etc )? What model/year vehicle? How many miles are on the vehicle? Any recent maintainence history? So if you slow down without stepping on the brake it doesnt make the noise?

    If you have an aftermarket exhaust (especially aftermarket catless downpipe) this is pretty normal.

    Only time you would hear a backfire from your car is when your over fueling between shifts (bov to blame) or you have an aftermarket exhaust system with a non or crappy tune...
