Exhaust Repair & Replacement
Your car’s exhaust pipe serves a number of purposes, but it needs to be in good condition and working well for you to get the best fuel economy possible and reduce the CO2 emissions produced by your car. We carry out a free visual exhaust check as part of our vehicle health check, which checks the exhaust, catalytic converter, and mountings for physical damage, leaking joints, and corrosion.
How do I know if my exhaust needs replacing?
Exhaust systems are prone to damage from plenty of different sources, whether they come from external knocks and bumps or from corrosion caused by the age of the vehicle. For that reason, it’s recommended to check your exhaust pipe for physical damage at least once every 10,000 miles, or once a year- whichever comes around first.
Your car’s exhaust system may show some tell-tale signs of failure that indicate repair work or a replacement that you may notice, including:
- Excessive smoke coming from the exhaust
- Louder engine noise while driving
- A knocking or rattling sound indicating something may have come loose
- Visible holes
- A low-hanging or dragging pipe
