In order for your vehicle to keep running as intended, all of its components need to work together. This means that you will need to spend a little time and money to have a car inspection and the appropriate vehicle maintenance done. This inspection should include the exhaust system. A good exhaust system will keep your car running smoothly, divert harmful exhaust fumes from your engine, reduce toxic emissions, and improve your fuel economy. So when it comes to exhaust and muffler repair, don’t wait until you start to hear the rumbling sounds of trouble before you visit your auto shop.

Here are 6 warning signs that could mean you have issues with your exhaust system, muffler, catalytic converter or exhaust pipe.

  1. Noisy muffler - When working properly, the muffler should operate quietly in the background. When something goes wrong, it may sound like a roaring monster.
  2. Rattling Noises – A failing catalytic converter may sound like someone is shaking a metal box full of pennies. This is one of the most expensive components of the exhaust system, so have it inspected immediately if you hear this kind of sound!
  3. Decreased fuel economy - Stopping at the pump more than usual to fill the tank could mean there is a problem in the exhaust system. Newer vehicles have a computer sensor that can pinpoint a problem before it gets serious by monitoring fuel economy and overall performance.
  4. Bad odors - When working properly, your muffler funnels exhaust fumes outside and away from the vehicle. If there is a leak or other problem, those fumes could be circulating inside your car. This is dangerous for you and your family as exhaust fumes can be fatal over time.
  5. Vibrating - If you’re the car is vibrating a lot or losing power, it could be an exhaust problem. However, it could also be something else. You’ll want to get it checked out by a professional auto repair technician to find the source of the problem.
  6. Check Engine Light – If the catalytic converter is failing, it may trigger the check engine light on your dashboard to display. Has it checked out at your auto shop?

Tip to Remember: Don’t forget to have your exhaust system inspected on a regular basis. It is most effective when it is neither seen nor heard. Unfortunately, this can also mean that it is out of sight and out of mind. At the first sign of muffler problems, schedule an inspection of the exhaust system as soon as possible.
