Pontiac GTO 2004-2006 - 2004 Stock exhaust gurgle?
01-11-2007, 09:52 AM
Anyone else with an '04, on cold start experience a gurgling noise from exhaust? I have started to notice it more and more the colder it gets. I am thinking its probably condensation in the exhaust, but wonder if anyone had experienced the same thing and what if anything the dealer did to address.
Note: This is not the standard exhaust rattle. I am having the dealer address that next week. I know they probably won't fix it, but hey might as well complain! LOL

I'm thinking its pretty normal, but I haven't had a stock exhasut in so long I can't really remember. Does it go away once its warmed up? There are weep holes in the mufflers, take a look and see if water is coming out.

LOL, well when I am in a hurry to work I don't take the time to see if it goes away! LOL.
IIRC it does go away though.

Normal. Especially in winter with the cold start idle. Just jump in and drive.

Cool. Thanks guys. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one! hahahaha.

Yeah, after a minute or two of warm up, mash the gas and you'll see a half pint of water behind your car. It is normal. Mine does it too.

This is only a problem if you have a really short commute and the condensation doesn't have a chance to get out.

It does it on my 06 as well. Not sure if its to the extent that yours is but it definitely spits a little condensation and gives a little gurgle out of the tips.
