Does Your System Need Service?

Just like other components and systems in your vehicle, the exhaust system needs to be consistently monitored and serviced. This ensures it isn’t dealing with smaller problems that could worsen over time. To properly do this, you need to understand the signs of degradation, and that’s where the Kirkwood team can help. Here are a few signs you should look out for!

Loud Engine

If something is wrong, this will be the first thing you notice and hear. The muffler, which is part of the exhaust system, is responsible for reducing the sounds produced by the engine. If damaged, the engine won’t be able to redirect the sound into the muffler, which results in the loud sound. Outside of the obnoxious noise, this could even result in a noise violation from your local law enforcement.

Lower Fuel Efficiency

In this situation, a lowered fuel efficiency can be a result of an exhaust leak. Fumes may not fully leave your vehicle due to the leak, which will result in your engine operating at a higher temperature. This reduces your fuel efficiency and can lead to more visits to the gas pump. Make sure you quickly have your vehicle serviced, or risk spending more money on gas and repairs.
