    its supposed to be new. i got a new engine and it blew after a week. i took it in he said he replaced the gasket and then a couple days later the problems right back. it sounds HORRIBLE.

    Find outwhattype of gaskets he is using, Get a seconds opinion, If your car is idling and your behind it can you feel exhaust coming out? I doubt its clogged unless when they were changin the motor they dropped something down in your exhaust. Is it just one side or both?
