    Could it be that you have something stuck on the front of your radiator?

    You could have a plastic bag that stuck on the exhaust, it happened to my friends T/A. As long as the cars not running hot, you shouldnt have anything to worry about.

    Yeah, sounds like some kinda plastic on the exhaust, it can be a real pain to get rid of if that is the problem. It will melt to the pipe then stick badly. At work we get customers in for this problem 2-3 times a year. What we do is scrape as much off and tell them only time will do the rest.

    Unusual item on exhaust

    HEEHEE, I laugh just remembering this. My first car was a lebaron convertible and one night a possum was on the road. I thought it was dead an was driving over it when it stuck it's head up. Long story short I had a possum stuck to my catalytic converter for about ten mile till I was home and could beat it off with a shovel. Damn that thing was stuck on there good. Anywho... just thought I'd share a funny story.
