Do you have a noisy vehicle? You may need a new muffler or exhaust system. The purpose of your exhaust system is not only to reduce the noise, but also to redirect fumes away from your vehicle. Redirecting these fumes protects passengers in the car from toxins created by burning fuel.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless chemical that can escape from an unsecured exhaust system, and if inhaled can pose very serious health hazards. If you experience an unusually loud sound coming from your vehicle, it is vital to get your exhaust system checked immediately! Here are a few checkpoints that we recommend:
- Have your vehicle's exhaust system inspected periodically.
- Make sure mounts are secure and there are no cracks in your exhaust pipes.
- Proper maintenance of your vehicle is essential to your catalytic converter – the devise that redirects those damaging emissions.
