    Car Exhaust Leak Repairs in Hamilton

    What is an exhaust leak?

    Your car’s exhaust is responsible for filtering and expelling petrol fumes from your car’s engine. An exhaust leak can cause these fumes to find their way out of the wrong part of your vehicle. This can lead to the fumes entering the car’s cabin. It can also affect engine performance and increase your car’s fuel consumption.

    Exhaust leaks can cause harmful levels of carbon monoxide to enter the interior of your car which can affect your judgement and health. For this reason, we recommend that you get your exhaust leak repaired as soon as possible.

    Causes of an exhaust leak:

    There are several different parts that can leak in your exhaust system. Common causes of an exhaust leak include:

    • Damaged / leaking muffler.
    • Damaged / leaking tailpipe.
    • Connecting exhaust pipes between mufflers
    • Malfunctioning catalytic converter (often accompanied by sulfur-like smell).
    • Problems with the exhaust manifold.

    Symptoms of an exhaust leak:

    • Exhaust smell inside your car – When the exhaust system is leaking, the gas can find their way into your car. This can produce a noticeable smell of very harmful exhaust fumes.
    • Rumbling noises – Another commons ign of an exhaust leak is a loud rumbling noise from beneath your car. Usually, a louder noise will mean the leak is closer to the engine.
    • Increased fuel consumption – If the leak is located close to the oxygen sensor, it will trick the sensor into thinking there is too much air and not enough fuel in the combustion mixture. The engine will then send more fuel, resulting in your fuel tank becoming empty much more quickly, costing you more money.
    • Check engine light – An exhaust leak can trigger the check engine light on your car’s dashboard. This is due to your car’s oxygen sensor detecting incorrect air/fuel levels.
