So i was driving back home from work like 15minutes ago. All of a sudden i hear this pop sound kind of like a gun shot or a firecracker. It scared me but i was close to home so i kept going. i shifted into 6th and then i heard it again. the rpms i guess were pretty low like....2000.

Could it be coming from my exhaust? i know it's not low oil because i checked it a couple of days ago and i recently changed it....any help would be appreciated.

I had a straight pipe exhaust on one of my last cars, it would backfire sometimes after heavy acceleration and sounded exactly like a gunshot. It was LOUD.
