Exhaust System Repair and Diagnostics In Penticton

About Exhaust System Repair and Diagnostics

Integra Tire Auto Centre provides automotive repair service of the highest quality. Our technicians can diagnose your muffler and exhaust issues and have you back on the road in the shortest amount of time possible.

The purpose of a muffler is to decrease the amount of noise emitted by the exhaust of an internal combustion engine and your exhaust is tasked with removing harmful fumes and emissions from your vehicle. Both these components are referred to as the “Exhaust System.”  Exhaust systems are crucial to your safety, as a defective exhaust system can cause potentially fatal gases, such as carbon monoxide, to leak into the cabin of your vehicle. The catalytic converter, which is part of the exhaust system, helps convert dangerous gases to mostly harmless ones that do less damage to the environment. Finally, your exhaust system is responsible for reducing the temperature of emissions – protecting other vehicle components from being damaged.  For these reasons, regular inspections of your exhaust system and muffler are critical.

When you need expert advice, you can count on the team at Integra Tire Penticton to get your vehicle up and running in tip-top shape.

Troubling Signs

  • Overly noisy engines can indicate signs of exhaust problems. This will likely be noticeable when accelerating if you have a crack or hole in your exhaust system; however, small leaks in the manifold gasket will sound like a hissing or tapping noise when starting or accelerating.
  • Burning Smells and Fumes– As mentioned, your exhaust system protects other vehicle components from heat – if a faulty gasket is causing heat to escape, the plastic components or wiring may burn.  Don’t wait to see smoke before bringing your vehicle in, as smoke may not escape. If you smell gas inside your vehicle when driving, this may be a sign of a leak as well.
  • Decreased Fuel Efficiency and/or Acceleration – Problems with the exhaust will affect your engine performance. You will notice your vehicle does not accelerate as well or as quickly.
  • Visual Problems – Obvious problems such as hanging exhaust pipes, excessive rust, or holes in mufflers should be addressed immediately.
