Exhaust Service and Repair in New Lenox, Schererville, and Steger
The exhaust system performs several functions. It allows harmful gases emitted by the engine to safely pass out the rear of the vehicle away from the driver and passengers. It also quiets engine operation through the use of muffles and resonators. Last, and most importantly, the catalytic converters help reduce the impact engine operation has on the environment by reducing the emission of noxious gases.
On most vehicles, the exhaust system runs from the engine underneath the car to the back. It’s location beneath the car leaves it exposed to road salts, debris, and contact with the ground when going over bumps. As a result, components can rust out or become disconnected over time.
An exhaust leak is pretty easy to identify. Your car will be louder, and you may notice an exhaust smell while you drive (if you smell exhaust, drive with the windows open until you get it looked at!). Engine issues like misfires can destroy catalytic converters, and the delicate oxygen sensors can become damaged.
