Looking for a bit of advice... I've have my 1970 96 v4 for about 6 months. Recently when starting to drive from cold it keeps on making a phut phut noice from the exhaust, particularly when accelerating. Sometimes it gets louder, like an old banger (which I guess it is!). It goes away when the engine warms up fully though.

Any idea what it is and how to remedy it? Sorry - I'm not that mechanically/technically minded!

Thanks a lot
