In brief: None

Usually none unless it leaks or bursts and then it's very painful, there is large possibly pulsating lump, and, in the worst case, your blood pressure drops with faintness.
Prior to rupture, one may discover an unusually easy to feel pulsation in the crease in the groin which is painless. There's normally a strong pulse there so distinguishing it from an aneurysm may be hard without ultrasound.

These aneurysms are usually painless but sometimes they can cause blockage of arteries in the foot by releasing clot into the circulation. This leads to cold, discolored (or ulcerated) skin.
