Exhaust Repair & Maintenance in Colorado Springs, CO
When thinking about the performance and longevity of their cars, most people don’t give the exhaust system a second thought. However, it is a very important component of any vehicle.
A proper exhaust system will help keep the car running smoothly as it diverts harmful fumes away from the engine, through the muffler and out the exhaust pipe(s). When there are problems within the exhaust system, exhaust manifold or catalytic converter, it is not good for the health of the car or the driver. The engine will deteriorate if those emissions aren’t being pumped out. Worse yet, an exhaust leak or backup can lead to deadly carbon monoxide getting into the passenger cabin.
When your exhaust system is performing properly, it will reduce emissions. Your fuel economy can even improve with routine inspections, maintenance and repairs of your exhaust pipes, manifold, catalytic converter, muffler and other vital components of your exhaust system.
