Your exhaust emissions system is the only means of channeling away those noxious fumes, like the environmentally destructive gas carbon monoxide, generated by your engine. An exhaust that has failed can lead to noxious fumes being drawn into the vehicle cabin and prolonged exposure to exhaust fumes can make a vehicle occupant feel drowsy, which could lead to an even greater danger.

Unfortunately the poor road conditions: stones, grit, salt, water and mud can damage exhausts. In the event when a very hot system is doused in water or comes into contact with snow, rapid expansion and contraction will take place. This in turn weakens seams of components and the welds.

Regular checks of you exhausts can greatly reduce the chances of your exhaust failing mid-journey. Many motorists would regularly check their battery, oil, washer fluid and perhaps tyre pressure, but completely overlook the exhaust.

Noisy Exhaust?

The sound coming from your exhaust can give you a rough idea about the general overall condition of your exhaust. So listen…

  • A “tinkling sound” could indicate a problem with your silencer.
  • A “persistent rattle” could indicate part of the exhaust is loose.
  • A “loud roar” could indicate a hole in your exhaust pipe.
