Car Exhaust System Diagnostic & Repair

If the exhaust system on your vehicle isn’t working properly, it can lead to major damage including the premature deterioration of your engine. An effective exhaust system decreases fuel emission while increasing the fuel economy of your car.

The exhaust performs a critical function to safely move harmful fumes from your engine out to the tail pipe, which is why it’s extremely important to perform regular maintenance on your exhaust.

The first signs of a faulty exhaust

 

The gas analyzer and the catalytic converter are the two most expensive parts. The gas analyzer sends messages to the central computer, while the catalytic converter burns toxic nitrogen oxides. Without engine maintenance and tune-ups, these two exhaust system parts will stop working properly and will need to be replaced.

Some things to look out for with a faulty exhaust system are:

  • Seeing smoke or smelling gas
  • Vibration while driving
  • The Check Engine light turns on

Exhaust gas contains a number of pollutants and the catalytic converter scrubs some of these harmful substances out. Overtime, the catalytic converter eventually wears out and will need to be replaced.

With proper fuel system cleaning and air filter replacement, you can extend the life of your vehicle’s catalytic converter.
