Thanks everyone whose replied so far!
Going out today to check the transmission fuel, (After reading a
primer on how to do so online) while idling the car, as I was told I
have to do so to properly check transmission fluid, I realzed that the
rediculously loud sound was indeed not coming from the front of the
car, but from the back!
After using scooby-doo taught logic, I realized nothing was coming out
of the exhaust pipe, and fter crouching down for a closer look, found
a big ol’ crack in the muffler, at least I think thats what it is, cuz
it’s not a pipe, its more of boxish thing.
Oh yeah, and the trans fluid seems to be fine, red and inside the
little markers on the stick.
