Exhaust System and Repair

Exhaust System Picture

Tveten’s Auto Clinic in Lakewood is your stop for exhaust systems and repair.  When you need a car repair, it’s not always as obvious as you would expect, especially with an exhaust system repair. Sometimes the car seems to run fine, but an exhaust repair is needed because of internal problems in the engine or throughout the exhaust system. Exhaust repair shops are plentiful, but it’s vital to get a shop you can trust.

Your exhaust system is a big part of your car, and if it doesn’t work right you may notice that your car isn’t running like it used to. The exhaust may smell bad, it may be very dark in color, or it may be cloudy and foggy. Often, your “check engine” light will come on, as well. If you notice any of those things, take your car in for an exhaust system repair. If you don’t, you could encounter problems later that could have been avoided.

The catalytic converter if it is failing may sound like someone shaking a box of rocks when your vehicle is idling when parked or stopped in traffic. If you notice any of these issues, schedule an appointment with Tveten’s Auto Clinic right away.

If you notice a new vibration when you touch the steering wheel, foot pedals or car seat. You might or might not hear a rumbling sound, depending on the size of the damaged area. A hole, leak or disconnected exhaust system component don’t just cause vibrations, they can also signal the engine is no longer running at optimum performance.

If you notice you have to fill up your gas tank more often than normal, have your exhaust system checked out by a Pete’s Auto Repair. Similar to the vibrations, increased fuel use is a sign something is wrong with your car. When the exhaust leaks, your engine works harder. When your engine works harder, it requires more fuel.

One of the most obvious signs for many drivers is a deep or loud rumbling sound coming from your car.
