Mufflers & Exhaust Systems: Problems to Look For

Mufflers and exhaust systems can start to fail after years of driving on roads filled with bumps, potholes, or chemical reactions from salted ice roads. In addition, modifications can cause long-term issues, especially if you did not use professional equipment. You can prevent issues with your mufflers by taking it into the service department and letting a professional see what is causing the issue.

One of the major issues to look for is a leak. If you have a leak, you could smell something strange coming from the exhaust system or experiencing hard vibrations on the steering wheel. This is caused from a failing exhaust system. When your engine can't push out the exhaust properly, you won't get the right fuel efficiency. However, leaks could also be a much bigger problem. For example, carbon monoxide can leak into the cabin.

If you are having issues with your muffler and exhaust system, talk to the professional service team at Lithia Volkswagen of Reno located in Reno, NV.
