Does My Exhaust Need Checking?
To ensure your vehicle runs smoothly, a well maintained exhaust system is crucial. Your vehicle’s exhaust system, including the catalytic converter, ensures that the engine performs efficiently and removes harmful gases from the engine. In turn, you can enjoy a safer, more comfortable drive every time you get behind the wheel.
At Tyre City, we are here to help if you experience any problems with your exhaust or catalytic converter. To help you determine if you need a car exhaust repair or replacement, here are a few things to look out for:
If you find any sign of rust on your exhaust, you should check to see whether the damage is internal or external. External rust that is surface level is not usually an issue. However, if the rust has come through from the inside, this may suggest structural damage.
To check areas of rust, gently touch the area with a screwdriver and see if you can feel any weakness or if there are any visible holes. If this is the case, then your vehicle may need a new exhaust. You may find that it’s more cost effective in the long term to replace more than just the affected part.
The silencer is one of the parts of your exhaust most susceptible to damage. So, if you can hear an excessively loud roaring noise coming from your exhaust, this may indicate that there is a problem with your silencer.
Another noise to listen out for is rattling under the car. This may suggest that the system has become misaligned. If you hear a hissing sound, it could be that there is a crack in the exhaust, while a chugging noise suggests that the system is blocked. In these instances, it’s likely an exhaust repair is needed.
Problems With The Catalytic Converter
The catalytic converter is integral to the performance of your exhaust system. If the converter isn’t working, the exhaust emissions contain more harmful gases and, fuel efficiency is decreased. Some of the most common catalytic converter issues occur due to temperature changes in the exhaust system which can prevent it from functioning efficiently. If we find that this part of your vehicle is not working as it should, we may suggest a catalytic converter repair or replacement.
