Maintaining Your Exhaust System
Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Your car’s exhaust system is much, much more than a muffler. Other than controlling the amount of noise that your vehicle puts out, the exhaust system makes sure that toxic fumes stay out of your car and that your engine runs smoothly. On top of this, a properly running exhaust system is crucial to getting the most out of your car’s fuel efficiency as well as reducing your car’s pollutive emissions.

It’s important to keep your car’s exhaust system maintained. Having your exhaust pipe inspected should be a regular occurrence since built up fumes can damage your engine. Exhaust issues vary from car to car, but there are a few tell-tale signs that you need to look out for when you’re driving. If any of these apply to your vehicle, bring it into our shop right away for an inspection:
  • Vibration Noise: If you hear or feel a vibrating noise while your car is running, make note of where it’s coming from. This could be the result of a leak in the system which reduce engine performance.
  • Louder Than Usual Exhaust: This is the most obvious sign that something is wrong with your exhaust system. If you notice that your exhaust is unusually loud, bring it in to us for an inspection before it leads to other problems.
  • Lesser Gas Mileage: If your car isn’t getting the mileage that it used to between fill-ups, this might also be a sign that there’s a problem with the exhaust system. If you have a leak, your engine has to work even harder which leads to it using more fuel.

If you’re having issues with your exhaust or if you’re just looking for a routine check-up, request an appointment today. We’ll make sure you’re safe out there on the road.
