Typical Exhaust Issues

Although we don't recommend fixing an exhaust system issue yourself, we do suggest learning about why some they're happening. Outside of just knowing when to bring your vehicle in, having this knowledge can help make your service visit quicker, as you'll be able to point our team in the right direction. Here are two common problems to look out for:


It should come as no surprise that rust is not good for your exhaust system. Any sign of it should be an automatic red flag in your mind, and it's best to schedule a visit as soon as you see it. Rust typically happens when water vapor collects in the exhaust system but isn't burnt off. If you don't act promptly, the rust will spread and corrode the exhaust system from the inside out.

Strong Vibrations

Do you feel vibrations in your steering wheel or gas pedal? If so, it's a strong sign that the exhaust system needs repairs. These can be attributed to several things, ranging from a loose bolt to a clogged catalytic converter. Regardless of the issue, the vibrations can seriously compromise your ability to drive safely. We highly recommend you visit us for service as soon as possible.
