LOUD popping noise
 
Hey guys, maybe someone could give me some insight on something...

last night i noticed a loud poping noise coming from the Jeep. I had just drove it to my cousins house for Hanuka and was walking to the front door and heard the sound. It wasn't the sound of air suddenly escaping from something... it was more similar to the releasing of a spring or something involving tension, and it only happened once.

I've heard similar noises in the past but this one really caught my attention. I was about 60ft from my Jeep when i heard it so its hard to say if the noise came from the front, back, right or left of the vehicle.

Any body have ANY clue what this might be??

Im baffled.

your muffler is about ready to pop open. look under after you get out, it will be glowing hot in the middle part of the bottom. mine popped for a few weeks and then eventually cracked open.

to be honest, im not sure lol... I'm doing a favor for a client of mine who works with custom cars... in return he said he'd throw on a cat back exhaust w/ a magnaflow muffler... didnt ask what model, i just smiled and said OK!

How noticeable is a hole in your muffler when driving?

I used to get this popping sound after turning the car off, but haven't noticed it recently.

Coincidentally (or not) I've noticed a HINT of what I can best describe as "the 2Fast2Furious Honda Civic exhaust" sound when accelerating from stops. You know, like a weed-eater.

I briefly looked under at the muffler and didn't notice any holes.

Thoughts?

So I was told by the mechanic that my muffler is rotting from the inside out causing it to vibrate/clank loudly at higher RPMs. Apparently it's 3 pieces from the factory after the converter. $680 for parts and labor for the exhaust pipe, muffler, clamp, and tail pipe. Lifetime warranty on those. Thoughts on that much just to cure a noise? There are no leaks or holes.
