How to Tell if Your Exhaust is Leaking

August 7th, 2019 by

Properly maintaining your vehicle can be difficult, especially if you don’t know if it is broken. A common fault that can happen to your vehicle is the exhaust will develop a leak. Your vehicle’s exhaust is responsible for taking gasses from the engine, scrubbing and muffling them, then ejecting them out the rear of the vehicle. The roads can be rough on vehicles and can cause them to break down prematurely.

One sign that your vehicle may be having issues with its exhaust is if you hear random hissing or popping noises. This is usually a telltale sign that your exhaust is leaking or having an unexpected restriction. Another sign that you have an exhaust leak is burnt paint near the exhaust ports. This means exhaust gasses are escaping and discoloring your cylinder head.

If you are not quite sure about how to handle an exhaust leak on your vehicle, you should take it to the service department at The Sharpe Collection. Our expert staff will diagnose your vehicle and get it back on the road as soon as possible.
