Keeping Your Car Exhaust Pipe Maintained

The exhaust pipe plays a key role in diverting exhaust fumes out of your engine, which in turn keeps your vehicle running smoothly. Built-up exhaust fumes can ultimately cause engine deterioration, which makes it important to have your exhaust pipe regularly inspected at a professional muffler shop.

If You Hear a Vibration

If you hear vibrating when your car is running or if it experiences a loss of power, bring it in for a free exhaust inspection. Let the shop know where you noticed the vibration coming from: the steering wheel, operating pedals, or even the seat. This symptom could be a result of a hole, disconnected part, or a leak in the exhaust system. The problem may or may not include a rumbling sound – that depends on the size of the damaged area. The vibrations are not just signaling a problem with the muffler or exhaust... they are also signals that your motor is likely not performing at peak levels.

A Failing or Failed Catalytic Converter

The catalytic converter is the most costly part of your exhaust system. If your catalytic converter begins to fail, you will hear loud sounds. A failing catalytic converter sounds like someone shaking a metal box filled with pennies while your car is in idle. You may also notice your check engine light is illuminated.

Increase in Exhaust Volume

A deep rumbling noise coming out of your exhaust pipe is an obvious signal that you have a muffler or exhaust issue. Having it repaired quickly is the best option. Delaying needed muffler or exhaust repairs causes other exhaust and engine problems that make repairs more expensive.

Decrease in Fuel Efficiency

If you notice your regular fill-ups aren’t getting you as far as they used to, take your car to a local service center for an inspection. As with vibrations, loss of fuel efficiency might be a sign of a car exhaust system problem. Exhaust leaks makes your motor work harder, which requires more gas.
