TOP 5 SIGNS SHOWING YOUR EXHAUST SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE REPLACEDby 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:
- Muffler sounding louder than normal
- Leaking pipes
- Rust and corrosion
- Vibration from cracked or broken mounting brackets
- Rattling or knocking sounds from your muffler
- 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.
