Our vehicles need air filtration systems because they (and the other cars around us) emit exhaust gases while they’re running. These gasses are an unfortunate byproduct of our cars’ operation, we can limit their impact on the environment and our health with a properly functioning exhaust and emission control system.
If your vehicle seems to be having exhaust problems, we invite you to contact us today. Our trusted car repair professionals have been changing the way customers experience automotive service. We’re committed to an honest, transparent approach that empowers our customers to make informed decisions about the health of their vehicles.
Your Exhaust System and Its Possible Problems
When people think of a car’s exhaust system, they usually think of the muffler. But there are other components to the exhaust system, and over the years, automakers have developed more and more sophisticated ways to increase efficiency, reduce noise, and limit emissions. Your exhaust system includes your muffler, piping, and a catalytic converter, which reduces pollution. Generally speaking, exhaust systems are resilient, and problems that arise with them are often a sign that something else in the vehicle isn’t working properly. Still, it’s important to be vigilant about possible exhaust problems.
Signs of an exhaust system or muffler problem include
- Excessive loud noises while driving
- Engine misfires
- Gasoline odors
- Decrease in acceleration or power
- Decrease in fuel efficiency
