05 Kia Amanti gets "louder" when put in drive. It sounds like a broken exhaust, but only does it in drive. Problem does not duplicate in reverse, neutral, or park. Only in drive. Any ideas? I know it isn't the exhaust, just using that term as a sound reference.

Can you take an audio clip with your smart phone and post both 'normal' and 'not normal' sounds?

Was able to diagnose this issue. The front motor mount is worn out. When put in gear the motor shifts and it causes the exhaust gasket to separate, thus causing the louder exhaust. New motor mounts should cure this issue.
