Condition 1



Some customers may comment on a pinging/popping/snapping noise from underneath the vehicle at idle or immediately after the vehicle is shut off.



Pinging/popping/snapping noise from the exhaust system during cool down is a normal condition. The noise may be intermittent depending on the



outside temperature and or temperature of the exhaust system at the time of testing.



Cause 1



Exhaust Pinging/Popping/Snapping



As the exhaust system cools, the muffler shell and muffler internals contract at different rates. Pinging/popping/snapping noise from the exhaust



system during cool down is a normal condition.



Correction 1



DO NOT REPLACE THE EXHAUST SYSTEM COMPONENTS.



Exhaust Pinging/Popping/Snapping Noise (Normal)



This condition is normal to the muffler design and does not indicate poor quality or part failure. No repairs are necessary for this condition.



Replacing the muffler heat shield straps will NOT eliminate this noise. A new muffler may sound quiet for this condition, but as it ages may again



produce this same condition.



Condition 2



2010 Cadillac Truck Escalade/ESV RWD V8-6.2L Page 203



Some customers may also comment on a buzz noise coming from the muffler during vehicle operation.



Cause 2



Muffler Heat Shield Buzz



If the muffler heat shield straps are loose, the heat shield may be free to buzz during vehicle operation.



Correction 2



DO NOT REPLACE THE EXHAUST SYSTEM COMPONENTS.



Muffler Heat Shield Buzz (Perform Repair)



Confirm the origin of the buzz by shimming (use metal shims) the straps tight and rerunning the vehicle. If the buzz concern is gone, then it is



caused by the loose shield. Using the following procedure, install new straps to secure the heat shield to the muffler.



1. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in SI.



2. Mark the position of the heat shield (1) and straps (2) on the muffler shell.



3. Cut and remove the heat shield straps using tin snips along the muffler shell seam (1), and remove the shield from the muffler.



4. Position the heat shield to the muffler and install new heat shield straps on the muffler shell in the positions marked prior to removal.



Important



Do Not position the strap screw heads directly across from the propeller shaft. Ensure the strap heads are positioned below the



2010 Cadillac Truck Escalade/ESV RWD V8-6.2L Page 204



midpoint of the muffler.



5. Position the strap screw heads (1) on the inboard side of the muffler. Ensure that the strap screw heads (1) are below the midpoint of the



muffler.



Tighten



Tighten the straps to 4 Nm (35ē€šę†€bē€šę…½n).



6. Cut off the excess strap material and ensure that the ends (2) are flat against the muffler.



Parts Information



Warranty Information



For vehicles with Exhaust Pinging/Popping/Snapping Noise, NO repairs are necessary as it is a normal condition.
