Mufflers & Exhaust

Did you fail your emissions test? Experiencing increased fuel consumption for the same kilometers driven? It could be your muffler & exhaust system.

Your vehicle's exhaust system is designed to reduce harmful emissions from entering the atmosphere. A properly functioning exhaust system is good for you, your vehicle, and the environment.

A clean and well-function exhaust system helps to reduce noise. A dirty or clogged exhaust can drastically increase fuel consumption and, if bad enough, prevent your vehicle from starting.

As you can see, the exhaust system is complex. With our many years of experience, we can effectively diagnose the issue and efficiently get your vehicle back on the road.

Muffler and Exhaust System

Warning Signs there is Trouble with the Exhaust System or Muffler

Fuel Efficiency Descreases

The exhaust system effectively vents gasses from the engine through to the tailpipe. At the early stages of an exhaust system issue, you may notice a drop in the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. The engine may be taking more fuel to hit certain critical pressure points. A problem with your exhaust system could increase the amount you spend at the gas station.

Fumes Inside the Vehicle

A fume leak is a sign of trouble with your exhaust system. The leak may have fumes creeping up into the passenger compartment of the vehicle. The fumes may smell like rotten eggs or some other unpleasant odor. If you suspect this leak bring your vehicle in as soon as possible for inspection.

Loud Noises from the Vehicle

Have you ever heard a vehicle drive without a muffler? It sounds like you are sitting inside a monster truck! As the muffler wears down; the sound of the engine may get louder. If a pipe loosens or separates from the muffler the sound can really ramp up quickly. If these noises become frequent or are too loud to deal with, make an appointment with us to get your vehicle checked out.

Rough Idling of Your Vehicle

Rough idling can signal a problem with the exhaust system. A vehicle that does not idle properly is very inefficient on fuel. Prolonged problems with rough idling and rattling can lead to additional problems. It is important to get this checked.

Check Engine or Service Engine Light is On

The check engine light will indicate various issues with the vehicle. One of these areas is the exhaust system – if your warning light is on it could indicate a failing or faulty catalytic converter.
