EXHAUST REPAIR

Exhaust Repair in Arvada Colorado

IMPORTANCE OF EXHAUST SYSTEM REPAIRS

One of the hardest working systems in your vehicle is the exhaust system. By directing harmful fumes away from the engine and passenger cabin, they enhance vehicle performance and reduce engine noise at the same time. Leaks in the exhaust system will cause your engine to work harder than it needs to. This will reduce fuel efficiency and put you and your family at risk of inhaling hazardous fumes. If you have experienced any of these exhaust system problems, contact your auto mechanic to schedule an appointment in order to have the issue resolved.

Signs of Possible Exhaust Problems

Below are some warning signs that could let you know that you may have issues with your exhaust system, muffler, exhaust pipe or the catalytic converter. 

Reduced Fuel Efficiency – If you aren’t getting the usual gas mileage, the problem might be an exhaust problem or something entirely else. Make sure you have it checked out.

Vibrations – If your car is vibrating a lot or losing power, it could be an exhaust problem.  You’ll want to get it checked out by the professional automotive technician. We’ll determine the real source of the problem and get it fixed for you.

Rattling Noises – If your catalytic converter is failing, you may hear it rattling, as if someone were shaking a metal box filled with pennies. The catalytic converter is one of the most expensive parts of the exhaust system, so you don’t want to take chances. Have it inspected right away if you hear this kind of noise!

Check Engine Light – If the catalytic converter is failing, it may trigger the check engine light on your dashboard display. Again, this is best checked out by auto repair professionals.

Signs of Possible Exhaust Problems

Reduced fuel efficiency

The reason you’re spending so much money at the gas pump may be because of an exhaust leak. There is a chance that a leak in your exhaust system will result in fumes not being carried away. This could raise the temperature of your engine and reduce fuel efficiency. An ASE certified mechanic can diagnose the problem and fix it before it becomes a bigger issue.

Vibrations

Any vibrations coming from the steering wheel or gas pedal can be a sign of an exhaust leak. Depending on how severe the exhaust leak is, you might also feel the whole vehicle shake. They affect both your ability to control the vehicle with precision and your safety.

The engine is making noise

It’s likely that the first thing that you’ll notice if your exhaust needs to be repaired is increased engine noise. Since the exhaust system reduces engine noise, a leak in the exhaust system will cause the engine to whine loudly. You are likely to find an exhaust leak at the exhaust manifold or any joint along the exhaust system. When the manifold of the engine is leaking, it can increase engine volume significantly, allowing harmful fumes to enter the passenger compartment, placing you at risk of being poisoned by the toxic fumes.
