Weird rumble from muffler
 
I have an 08 with a stock exhaust. The other day at a stop light it sounded like my muffler fell off. It didn't. I checked. No holes, no damage that I can see inside the muffler or on the exhaust anywhere. Still attached fine, too. My friend thinks it's a baffle. I have no idea. The sound goes away as soon as I drive and comes back when I idle.

Your friend is prob right. Shake it to see if you can hear anything from the muffler. Are all the hangers in tact?

I wish I knew about cars like I do about computers. I looked and all the hangars seem okay. Someone on another site suggested I check the downpipe, but it really sounds like it's coming from the back.

Is a silencer the same thing as a baffle? I'll try checking that out again.

Pretty much the same thing
