I was driving yesterday going up a hill in lower gear... i think 3rd... and had the RPM's up sort of high, I heard a noise that sounded like if you stuck a stick into a fan...smoke also came out of the exhaust when pressing the gas.. smoke has come out before but I got my oil changed figured it might have just been burning off some oil....
I was thinkin the catalytic converter??

Re: Noise and Smoke coming out of exhaust...??? (337 noob)

As soon as i heard the noise i let off the gas, ... couldnt really say if i felt a power or boost loss since it was a steep uphill....but I also got my car up on a lift this morning and noticed one of the clamps on the exhaust was broken cause i heard a slight pinging noise when i made a few turns....
just figured loud noise and smoke = bad sign!
