Loud engine knock

I had an exhaust leak repaired. When I got the car home it started making a very loud engine knock that same day. Mechanic said it sounded like it was about to sling a rod. Makes no sense that it wasn't making this noise before the exhaust repair. Any wild ideas?

    That should have said engine KNOCK. Sorry for that.

    Fixed (most everyone is fluent in chat typo these days anyway). You can also edit your posts for 4 hours after posting - look for the gear to the right of your post.

    Sorry, no idea on your engine noise unless it's something silly like a heat shield rattling after the exhaust work.

    Can't say without hearing it. Maybe you should get a second opinion---but don't let anyone touch anything, just in case mechanic #1 has to correct his own work. Hopefully he didn't drop something in the engine if he had the manifolds off.
