Loud noise

I have a 2009 Jetta with 174,000 miles. When Iím driving the exhaust is REALLY loud...except when going around a right curve... then itís normal sounding. Any ideas what it could be before I bring it in. I donít know much about vehicles thatís why Iím asking people who know. Is it the catalytic converter?

Re: Loud noise

I don't think it is the exhaust at all. I think it is a wheel bearing.

Re: Loud noise

The tires were replaced last year all the brake system was replaced last year there is no shaking nothing to do with steering so I wasn’t thinking that it would be the brakes or the bearings And the noise does not seem like it’s coming from anywhere near the wheel wells

Re: Loud noise

Exhaust doesn't change sound when you turn. Bearings will get silent, or louder, when you turn. A bad bearing doesn't have to have any shaking, it could just be loud.

Ah Ö.. Mmmm ÖÖ Not exactly.

If you have a crack in the exhaust system somewhere, it can open and close depending on which direction you are turning - because the exhaust system is supposed to be able to move (it is hung on rubber.)

Re: Loud noise

It’s loud but when I get up to 30 and higher it’s really loud, especially when the accelerator is engaged
