Get Your Exhaust System Repaired or Replaced at The Service Centre

An issue with an exhaust system can often worsen over time until it fails. While a car in need of exhaust repair will usually still be able to drive, it will be regarded as unroadworthy, and the noise will draw unwanted attention. 

Your exhaust performs a vital role in allowing your vehicle’s engine to “breathe” by directing harmful gases and fumes away from your engine through the catalytic converter and out the tailpipe. 

However, the oxygen sensors in your car have a finite lifespan. This is ​​due to the same pollutants and gases, the precious metals in your catalytic converter, and even the metal with which these components are manufactured.

Anything from a terrible ‘rotten egg’ odour to your engine failing to start can be caused by the failure of these components!

Symptoms of a Failing Exhaust System

  • Unusual Vibrations and Rattling
  • Increase in Volume of Exhaust Tone
  • Decrease in Fuel Efficiency
  • Unpleasant “Rotten Egg” Smell
  • Water Dripping From the Exhaust Pipe
  • Major Rust Around the Exhaust

If you’re not sure if your car’s exhaust is the issue, start it up and listen to where the noise comes from. The engine bay produces most of the noise generated by an automobile when it is stationary. 

We propose that you stand behind the wheel and have someone else operate the engine. Listen to the rise and fall of the vehicle; a rattling sound indicates a faulty exhaust. If the noise is coming from the middle of the vehicle, the catalytic converter is most likely to blame.
