From protecting yourself and your passengers to protecting the environment, the exhaust system on your car has an important job to do. If one or more exhaust components are damaged, your vehicle will produce too many emissions, hastening climate change and increasing your carbon footprint.
Even more importantly, an exhaust leak can damage your health and even put your life in jeopardy. The gases emitted from your vehicle are colorless and odorless, so you may not know they are there. Over time, however, those dangerous gasses can impact your health, causing a number of symptoms and making you feel sick. In extreme cases, those leaking exhaust gases could even endanger your life.
Modern Exhaust Systems
The exhaust systems on modern cars, trucks and SUVs are marvels of precision engineering, with all the components working together to minimize vehicle emissions and keep you safe behind the wheel. That precision engineering is important, but it also means the failure of a single component can put the entire exhaust system at risk.
Exhaust system problems are not always easy to spot, but there are a few key signs to watch out for. If you notice a noise coming from underneath your vehicle, your exhaust system components may be loose. If your check engine light is on, the computer under the hood may have detected an exhaust leak. If you notice any of these problems, you need to bring your vehicle to Kurth’s Auto Repair for an expert diagnosis and the repairs you need.
