Exhaust System Repair & Muffler Service in Bolingbrook, IL 60490

Exhaust & Mufflers

Why is the Exhaust System Important?

Your exhaust system relieves pressure created by your engine’s combustion process. The pipes draw spent gases and hot air away from the engine and dispose of them safely. This limits the stress on the internal metal components. The exhaust pipes also contain all of the poisonous vapors created by burning fuel. Repairing a leaky car muffler or exhaust manifold keeps you safe and restores the performance of your engine. Custom and aftermarket exhaust systems further reduce inefficiencies in the original design to increase the available power output from your engine. If you think your engine’s exhaust system could be improved, ask one of our technicians at our Meineke #1776 in Bolingbrook, IL, to evaluate your vehicle.

Signs Your Exhaust System Is Failing

It's important for drivers to know the signs of a failing aftermarket exhaust system. The easiest way to tell if there's a problem is when your exhaust system starts producing a louder sound. This means there is a leak in your high performance exhaust system. Leaks are usually caused when the flexible weave of the exhaust system starts to rust. This is the most vulnerable part of your exhaust. If you've noticed that your exhaust is louder and you're worried about a leak, contact Meineke #1776 at Bolingbrook, IL. and we'll diagnose the problem and take care of any muffler repairs you need.

How Do Problems in the Exhaust System Affect Fuel Efficiency?

A common question we receive at Meineke #1776 in Bolingbrook, IL, is whether fuel efficiency is really affected by the exhaust system. The answer is yes. Your exhaust system should include an oxygen sensor. This sensor is designed to detect the amount of oxygen that is coming through the entire exhaust system. It sends a signal to your engine to either increase or decrease the amount of fuel it burns to maintain maximum efficiency. However, if the oxygen sensor is defective, it can cause your vehicle to expend unnecessary fuel. Having your oxygen sensor changed every 60,000 miles can help eliminate this issue before it begins.

When Should You Get a New Exhaust System?

Exhaust systems do eventually wear out. The combustion process inside of your engine creates a tremendous amount of heat. This forces chemical changes to occur. While much of your fuel is burned up, one of the remaining byproducts is water vapor. This vapor comes into contact with the metals causing oxidation and rust. Eventually the metals of your manifold, pipes, and car muffler wear out. They develop cracks and weak spots. You may hear loud engine noises or notice an odor as you drive. Fixing the problem may require an aftermarket exhaust or even a custom exhaust system to be installed. If you are experiencing any of these warning signs, contact our in Bolingbrook IL, and have your vehicle inspected.
