Saint Paul Muffler and Exhaust Service
The lifespan of an exhaust system on today's vehicles can vary widely. Most manufacturers use high-quality steel, but under harsh conditions the system may need repair of replacement within five years. The factors that will increase wear and tear include higher than average annual mileage, driving in winter conditions where slush and road salt are common.
Because a damaged or leaking exhaust system can allow harmful exhaust fumes to enter the vehicle, it's best to have the vehicle inspected as soon as possible.
Signs Your Muffler and Exhaust System May Need Rpair or Replacement
- It's making vibration or rumbling noises. This could be the result of a loose mounting bracket or a hole in the muffler.
- There is a loss of power and fuel economy. While there can be many causes for reduced efficiency and performance, in many cases, replacing a worn out exhaust system with a new system will improve fuel efficiency.
- The vehicle is louder than normal or makes unusual sounds. This may occur under idle and/or under acceleration. Rattling noises are sometimes heard when the catalytic converter has failed.
