The exhaust system is responsible for reducing the amount of pollutants released into the environment, collecting and directing harmful emissions away from the vehicle, and minimizing engine exhaust noise and force. The exhaust system is designed to streamline vehicle operation and maximize performance and efficiency. The exhaust system can affect your vehicle’s performance and your ability to drive. Some common signs that indicate the need for immediate exhaust system repair are: loud excessive noises while accelerating, rattling noises when starting the engine, excessive idling, feeling drowsy while driving due to fumes leaking through the vents into the cabin, sharp odors, or signs of rust or cracks in any component indicating corrosion. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek service immediately. Maintaining routine exhaust system services will help keep all of your exhaust components working efficiently. Routine maintenance on your exhaust system will save you from having to replace the entire exhaust system down the road.
