Vehicle Parts Experts Share Signs of Exhaust Trouble, Brockton, Massachusetts

Your car’s exhaust does much more than keeping the engine quiet. These vehicle parts play a crucial role in your car by helping your engine function effectively, safely redirecting exhaust fumes and improving your gas mileage. As the team at Woodward’s Auto Parts in Brockton, MA, notes, damage to your exhaust can ultimately lead to several other problems for your vehicle.

By watching out for these common signs of exhaust trouble, you’ll be able to get repairs or replacement parts for your vehicle before the problem gets worse:

  • Loud Noises: While this is a fairly obvious indicator of trouble, loud noises that occur while driving are one of the first signs that something is wrong with your exhaust. Catalytic converter trouble can also cause an unusually loud noise when you first start your car or when you’re idling. Noises associated with these vehicle parts generally begin as a deep rumbling noise, which becomes louder and louder as the part’s condition continues to decline.
  • vehicle partsUnusual Operation: Other common signs of exhaust trouble affect your vehicle’s operation. While new vibrations in your car’s steering wheel or foot pedals are more common, in some instances, your engine could completely lose power while you’re driving. These serious problems should be repaired as quickly as possible.
  • Fuel Efficiency: A leaking exhaust system forces your engine to work harder than it normally would, which can significantly decrease your car’s gas mileage. While other factors can also contribute to a drop in fuel efficiency, a sudden decline in this aspect of vehicle performance is worth getting checked by a professional.
