TOP 5 SIGNS SHOWING YOUR EXHAUST SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE REPLACED

by Mechanics Direct November 1, 2018

Your vehicle’s exhaust system is composed mainly of metal which is subject to deterioration caused by moisture, salted roads, plus normal wear and tear. The highly-skilled auto mechanics at Mechanics Direct in Lowell, MA, advise that harsh New England weather often speeds up the deterioration of your exhaust system.

Be on the lookout for:

  1. Muffler sounding louder than normal

  2. Leaking pipes

  3. Rust and corrosion

  4. Vibration from cracked or broken mounting brackets

  5. Rattling or knocking sounds from your muffler

  6. Leaking exhaust you can see or smell

In addition to poor engine performance, failing exhaust systems often do not meet Massachusetts state emissions standards. Mechanics Direct is a State Registered Emissions Repair Station able to ensure your vehicle meets or exceeds those standards.

If you notice any of the above indicators that your exhaust system is in trouble, bring your vehicle to our expert auto mechanics at Mechanics Direct. For best service, schedule your appointment today. Find us at 1375 Middlesex St. in Lowell, MA 01851.
