Know the Signs of a Leaky Exhaust System

The exhaust system removes toxic gases from your vehicle and exhausts it to the outside via the tailpipe. A malfunctioning system can cause gases to accumulate in the vehicle. This can lead to the suffocation of people inside the car as well as vehicle damage.

At Lincoln of LaPorte, we think that knowing the signs of a problem with your vehicle is equally as important as knowing how to get an issue fixed. Here is what drivers should pay attention to as you drive around town.

If a vehicle suddenly has reduced gas mileage, there is a good chance that this may be due to a leaky exhaust system. Have the vehicle checked out and fixed. This small problem can develop in a larger one quickly. Vibrations are another sign that the exhaust system could have an issue. They can occur on the steering wheel, gas pedal, brake pedal, and car seats. This is often due to rusting of certain parts.
