Popping on idle

Post by Jamesq123 » 3rd July 2018 - 7:27am

Quick question...when the car is up to temp and I'm sitting in traffic or at lights...you can hear some popping from the exhaust...but not when cold...she had recently had a tune up and runs spot on..this just happens when idling...anyone come across this?

this can be caused by an air leak in the exhaust system, does she idle smoothly?

Mine does this, there's a small air leak at one of the exhaust joints causing it.
