Question

Hi, I have a 1999 (S reg) 1.3L 3 door ford fiesta finesse and it has recently just developed a 'boy racer' sounding engine coming from the front of my car! I'm aware that this means that a part of my exhaust has gone but when i've had it checked over i've been told i need the catalytic converter replaced...is this a big/expensive job? How urgent is the job? Many Thanks

Question

For some reason (I know I didn't knock it) my exhaust is loose and when I accelerate, it makes a vibrating noise which makes it sound like I'm driving a tractor! Is this a major problem, or can I leave it a few days as money is very tight at the moment? How much (roughly) can I expect to pay to get this fixed?

I've noticed some black smoke coming from my exhaust occasionally. I'm worried this could be dangerous, so what could be causing this?
