Call to schedule an appointment today or for tips on examining your exhaust system yourself.
Every so often, it pays to check your vehicle's exhaust. The best time to perform this inspection is during the warm part of the day. A check in the cool of the morning often results in a false reading in the form of clouds of exhaust caused by condensation. While this is generally nothing to worry about, dark smoke may be reason for concern. This is usually a signal that your vehicle is burning oil, which may warrant a ring job. If the exhaust emits dense, white clouds, the culprit most likely is a leaky head gasket that is allowing coolant to seep into the engine. This problem should be addressed right away.
Rust and Corrosion: Rust is a common cause of your exhaust system's malfunction. Road damage can cause small holes to develop under normal driving conditions as well.
Catalytic Converter: A catalytic converter is used to convert hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrogenoxide into harmless compounds. It is necessary to make sure it is operating correctly.
Another common problem is oxidization of the pipes, also known as rust. This corrosion is caused by moisture reacting with the iron in the steel, forming iron oxide. The moisture is a byproduct of combustion and also comes from rain. The earlier you notice rust, the easier it is to repair.
