    Unhappy "Wet" Rattle

    So driving to work this morning and i put my foot down coming off a roundabout and the engine didn't sound quite the same!

    I can only describe it as what sounds like a wet rattle, is if water was bubbling out a small hole or something.

    Sounds like its coming from the front end of the car and only happens when I'm putting my foot down. Any ideas what it might be?

    Cheers

    is your engine using coolant when cruising ie not putting your foot down

    Not sure what you mean?

    Noise is a bit louder now and pretty sure its the exhaust somewhere. Think its developed a hole. Ouch

    Didn't you fit a GT3 cat back a couple of weeks back? I would check to see it ain't blowing. Mine was peeing water everywhere from the join with the cat.

    Yeah that's right, Think the join there was pretty solid, blowing sounds like its coming from front end of car but il give it a look to see if it's leaking tehre.

    Turns out it was the flexi pipe running from cat to manifold. Easily sorted apparantly. Cheers
