Keeping Yourself & Your Car Safe With Exhaust System Repair
If fumes from your exhaust begin leaking into your cabin, you’ll notice it when you smell sharp odors combined with rattling while starting or accelerating or excessive idling. These are all signs that there are either cracks or rust in the system preventing the exhaust from directing emissions away from your vehicle, and that you should make a service appointment immediately to have it checked out.
Catalytic Converter Repair
Without a catalytic converter, your exhaust system will release poisonous and dangerous gases, like carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxide. Therefore, it’s important that a damaged or clogged catalytic converter be replaced at the first sign of trouble. A key sign of failure is a smell of sulfur which usually indicates a bad catalytic converter. During your service appointment, our mechanics will conduct tests to determine the exact cause of a malfunctioning catalytic converter.
