There are a few clear signs that will indicate whether your exhaust requires repairs or replacement parts. These include:
If your car is making a loud noise, this could indicate damage to the muffler, cracks to the exhaust pipe, or a leaking manifold. This can affect your fuel economy and the emissions produced by your vehicle. You could even fail your MOT or be fined as a result.
You may notice your fuel economy drastically decrease and find yourself getting a lot less mileage from your car. This is a clear sign that your exhaust is not doing its job correctly.
You may notice a smell of noxious gases, which could indicate that your catalytic converter is damaged, or a burning smell from your engine could be a sign of a leaking manifold gasket.
Your exhaust hanging low or dragging when driving is a clear indicator that the exhaust clamps need replacing and should be fixed before further damage is caused to the muffler or pipe.
