Whip’s Automotive offers exhaust system repair, including catalytic converter repair, muffler repair and exhaust manifold repair for Edgewater, MD, Davidsonville, MD, Harwood, MD, and surrounding areas.
Your vehicle’s exhaust system consists of the muffler, the catalytic converter, and the exhaust pipe. The exhaust pipe brings gasses from the engine to the catalytic converter and on through the muffler. The job of a catalytic converter is to reduce the amount of toxic pollutants in the gasses that exit your vehicle.
Over time, your catalytic converter may become clogged and fail, which often sounds like someone is shaking a box of rocks. This will also cause you to fail your Maryland emissions test.
A muffler muffles the sound of passing exhaust gasses, so if it fails to do its job, you will notice that your car becomes louder. Because the muffler essentially sits in the open and gets a beating from the elements, it is prone to rusting and may develop holes and even fall off.
If your vehicle is very loud, or is emitting strong fumes, it is time to get an exhaust system checkup. Not only does Maryland law say that people need to minimize harmful substances from entering the air, they can pose a risk to your health, as well as the environment. Not to mention that the efficiency of your car’s engine may decrease if it is unable to properly expel combustion byproducts.
Below are some of the signs that your exhaust system may need servicing or repair:
