What Are Some Common Exhaust System Issues?

The exhaust system is an underappreciated part of the vehicle. It is responsible for handling all the engine byproducts and moving them out of your vehicle. Over time, you may experience problems with your vehicle’s exhaust system. Regular maintenance and checkups are the best way to protect you from costly automotive repairs down the line. Read on to learn more about some common exhaust issues.

Common Signs of Exhaust System Issues

  • Broken Gaskets and Seals - Faulty gaskets and seals are responsible for keeping things in and out of your exhaust. These things can include toxic fumes. If you notice hissing or knocking sounds coming from your engine, you should have a professional check out your engine and exhaust system.
  • Malfunctioning Oxygen Sensor - Failing O2 sensors are also another common problem when you have an older engine and exhaust system. When this sensor goes out, it can't perform the essential job of regulating the air and gas mixture in your car, SUV, or truck. Your check engine may come on, and eventually, your catalytic converter and other parts can be impacted. If this is broken, please take it to our auto repair shop ASAP.
  • Exhaust System Leaks - These leaks occur due to cuts, holes, or abrasions with the pipes in your exhaust system. These leaks can cause inefficiency, rough rides, and even exhaust poisoning. If you notice an unpleasant smell coming from the exhaust, please get help immediately.
  • Exposure, Rust, and Natural Elements - Rust on your automobile may not seem like a huge deal at first. It is just an aesthetic flaw, right? Well – rust can lead to exhaust leaks and more. It can become holes if you don’t take early action.
