If not for the invention of the exhaust system, our roads would be a whole lot more unpleasant. The engine produces a good amount of noise and gasses during the internal combustion process. Your vehicle’s muffler has the important job of minimizing this noise, while the rest of the exhaust system guides harmful emissions away from the cabin. Therefore, exhaust system and muffler issues become much more apparent than some other common automotive issues. If your senses are telling you something is off, it may be time you bring your vehicle in for servicing at any of the 17 Boucher Automotive Group locations found throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.
Unchecked exhaust system and muffler issues aren’t just unpleasant, they can also be dangerous. For this reason, it’s important to catch the warning signs of potential issues early on. Exhaust fumes have a very strong sulfur-like smell. If you notice this scent lingering inside your vehicle’s cabin, there may be an exhaust leak that needs attention. You won’t want to take any chances of carbon monoxide poisoning, after all.
Other warning signs of exhaust system and muffler issues may include strange noises when accelerating, unusual vibrations, decreased power and acceleration, decreased fuel efficiency, or a hanging exhaust pipe.
