The original Photobucket link works for me. I can't really tell on the computer. It sounds like something is vibrating. Take it to a shop and have them look at it, I'm sure its minor.

I'm going to clean up the thread for you.

My guess is clogged cats or something blocking the flow of exhaust? Exhaust leaks? NO IDEA... you need to take it to a shop, its impossible for use to help with the info you provided.

I deleted your location from the first post, didnt know if you wanted that info to be visible...

Can't tell in the video but is it a small vibrating noise on the exhaust? I have that issue too and I've been meaning to open up a thread on it.

That sounds one hundred percent normal to me thats exactly how mine sounds and it smokes even after warmed up because your exhast fumes are very hot due to all maxima's exhausts being high flow and not really restrictive.

Okay wow.... that is very strange. I think you have said you don't any mods? Sounds like your muffler/resonator isn't working anymore but that is a long shot. Unless the car is old or heavily modded. (I know my exhaust is hard on those parts but I have headers) Please keep us updated.
