Making the streets of Johnston safer by spotting exhaust leaks!

At Acura of Johnston, we think it’s important for all vehicle owners to be able to spot basic problems, and diagnose them. While they should always get second opinions from our expert mechanics, they can save a lot of time and money by spotting them early, and knowing the problem when they bring it to us. Exhaust leaks can become serious, so let’s look at four symptoms that can help you spot them before things get bad.?
  • Reduced Gas Mileage – Various problems with your system can culminate in severely dropped performance, especially gas mileage.
  • Small Leaks – Your gaskets get hot and cold as your car runs, and sits inactive. This can result in various cross contamination and leaks, including with your exhaust.
  • Hissing noises – Pressure and contamination can also build up as your lines become choked, clogged or loosened, resulting in hissing and popping.
  • Vibration – Condensation can rust your exhaust system and, as we said, things can become loose as well, which can cause vibration as you turn, and when you idle!
