so i'll be driving a long stoplight to stoplight and when i downshift from 3rd to 2nd, i hear this popping noise like an air bubble coming from what sounds like more towards the front of the car. i'm thinking its exhaust related but i'm not quite sure. i really only hear it downshifting to 2nd and sometimes 3rd. i haven't tried listening for 4th and i never downshift to 1st. i know this seems kind of a vague description but any suggestions would be helpful

exhaust leak?

that's what i'm leaning towards since it also sounds like air is coming out when i step on the gas. somewhere in the exhaust towards the front of the car
