Exhaust System Repair Kendallville, Wolcottville, & Ligonier, IN
Located on the underside of your vehicle, the exhaust system collects and directs harmful emissions away from the vehicle, reduces the number of pollutants released into the environment, and minimizes engine exhaust noise and force. The exhaust system comprises pipes and tubing designed to streamline vehicle operation while maximizing vehicle performance and efficiency. Engines produce dangerous gases as a byproduct of the combustion process. The exhaust manifold collects the emissions from the engine and funnels the gases through the front pipe to the catalytic converter. The converter transforms these harmful gases, like carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxide, into less harmful ones, like oxygen, nitrogen, water vapor, and carbon dioxide. The muffler helps cancel out the noise created by the engine. The muffler dissipates sound waves while the tailpipe releases the converted gases into the atmosphere.
Benefits of Exhaust System Repair
The exhaust system can affect your vehicle’s performance and ability to drive depending upon the problem. For these reasons, it is important to keep current with maintenance intervals on your exhaust system. A repair service may be impending if you hear excessively loud noises during acceleration. These noises may be a sign of holes or cracks somewhere in the exhaust system. Rattling noises when starting the vehicle or excessive idling may be a sign of failed or broken hangers. If you feel drowsiness while driving, this may be a serious sign that fumes are leaking through the vents and into the cabin interior. Sharp odors are also signs that noxious fumes are leaking into the vehicle. Signs of rust or cracks in any component of your exhaust system indicate corrosion. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek a service sooner than later. Maintaining routine exhaust system services will help keep your exhaust components working efficiently, like the exhaust manifold, front pipe, downpipe, catalytic converter, and muffler. Routine maintenance on your exhaust system will save you from having to replace the entire exhaust system down the road.
