Exhaust System Service

1.) How do I know there is something wrong with my exhaust system?
Noise coming from your exhaust system always means that your vehicle is in some form of trouble. Even if you can’t hear anything, however, there is a chance that it may be leaking. So, anytime you look under your vehicle, take some time to inspect your exhaust system. Most exhaust systems are designed to function properly for about five to seven years before the mufflers and pipes begin to deteriorate; in some cases they will deteriorate even sooner. Some symptoms that will let you know something is wrong with your exhaust system include an intermittent hiss or popping noise when the engine is running, discolored paint next to the exhaust ports on the cylinder head and/ or burned spark plug wires or boots. Also look for holes in the muffler, cracked pipes and/ or broken hangars. The most common leak points are where the pipes come together with the muffler, resonator and converter, and where the pipes join together.

2.) What are the dangers of leaving my exhaust system unrepaired?
Exhaust leaks should never be ignored. Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas; it is also lethal if the windows of your vehicle are open and if it finds a way inside the passenger compartment. As little as 0.08 percent carbon monoxide in the air you breathe can cause dizziness, nausea and headaches. In only three minutes, a one percent concentration of carbon monoxide in the air you breathe can cause death. If you suspect problems with your exhaust system, don’t wait for it to get worse and get your vehicle serviced today. Call us to schedule your appointment today!
