The vehicle's exhaust system has four main functions: control noise, carry away gases, improve engine performance and improve fuel consumption.
A properly maintained exhaust system is essential to the clean and efficient operation of the car.
An exhaust leak from a broken pipe can cause the vehicle to experience a decrease in power, acceleration, and fuel efficiency due to the loss of backpressure.
The first signs that your exhaust system needs attention or replacement will be noise. The exhaust system not only expels fumes, it also muffles noise. If the exhaust system starts to wear then your car will start to make a different or more noise.
