Exhaust popping when I let off

Recommended Posts

Ok, as I said before, purchased a used 02 426, and when I let off the gas get a lot of popping back from the exhaust. Sounds almost like an old straight pipe on a 57 chevy I used to own.....ok, so I am dating myself I know...I am an old fart. Have I got a lean jetting problem? Did I mention that thing runs like a scalded rabbit?

> Air leak in the exhaust system.

> Lean idle mixture (1-Adjust, if that fails, then, 2-increase the pilot jet size)

Troubleshoot the problem in that order. If you rejet to cure an exhaust leak, your idle will be too fat, and you'll have starting problems.
