    Exhaust Manifold Gasket Repairs & Replacement in Hamilton

    What is the exhaust manifold gasket?

    Connected to the engine cylinder head, the exhaust manifold is an important part of your car’s exhaust system. It is responsible for collecting exhaust gases and sending them through to the tailpipe where they exit your vehicle. 

    The exhaust manifold gasket creates a seal between the exhaust manifold and the engine cylinders. This prevents harmful exhaust gases from leaking and causing damage. Due to the high temperatures of exhaust emissions, the exhaust manifold gasket is put under a lot of stress. Because of this, it can be prone to wearing out and leaking over time. 

    A failing exhaust manifold gasket may stop the gases from being cleaned in the catalytic converter. This can lead to increased emissions, resulting in your car failing its next Warrant of Fitness.

    *It can also lead to toxic exhaust gases entering the passenger compartment of your car while you are driving, endangering the health of you and your passengers.


    Symptoms of a damaged exhaust manifold gasket:

    Hissing noises – When the exhaust manifold begins to leak, you may hear a hissing sound coming from your engine. This sound will be the most noticeable after you first start your car.

    Burning smell – Since the exhaust emissions are so hot, they can burn surrounding components when they leak from the exhaust manifold. This can result in damaged wiring. If you notice a burning smell, we recommend that you get your car diagnosed as soon as possible. This will prevent any further damage from occurring. 

    Reduced engine performance – A failed exhaust manifold gasket can result in decreased acceleration and engine performance. It may also cause the Check Engine Light (CEL) to turn on, on your dash.

    Reduced fuel economy – Like any problem that affects engine performance, a worn exhaust manifold gasket can lead to your car using more fuel than normal. In this case, it is often because your exhaust is unable to recirculate gases back into the engine combustion chamber.
