In order for your vehicle to keep running at its peak performance level, it’s important to keep all vehicle maintenance items up-to-date, including an inspection of the exhaust system and muffler. A good exhaust system will keep your car running quietly, reduce toxic emissions, and improve fuel efficiency. Visit your auto shop if you find yourself asking, “How do I know if my exhaust needs replacing?”

Your exhaust system is most effective when it is neither seen nor heard. Unfortunately, that means that it is “out of sight; out of mind.” Don’t wait until you hear the rumbling sounds of trouble before scheduling a maintenance service

Your exhaust may need replacing if you notice any of the three symptoms below:

  1. Loud noises – When the muffler is in good condition, it will operate quietly in the background. However, if it develops problems, it may sound like a roaring monster.
  2. Lowered fuel economy – Having to fill up the tank more often than usual could mean a problem in the exhaust system. Newer vehicles have a computer sensor that monitors fuel economy and overall performance. This sensor can pinpoint a problem before it gets serious.
  3. Obnoxious odor – The job of the muffler is to funnel toxic exhaust fumes outside and away from your vehicle. If there is a leak or some other problem, those fumes could be circulating inside your car. This is hazardous for you and any passengers.

A word to the wise: At the first sign of exhaust problems, schedule an inspection of the exhaust system as soon as possible to prevent bigger and more costly problems down the road.
