Do you have a noisy vehicle? If so, you may need a new muffler or exhaust system from our team here at Autoworks in Ithaca. The purpose of your exhaust system is not only to reduce the noise but also to redirect fumes away from your vehicle. Redirecting these fumes protects passengers in the car from toxins created by burning fuel.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless chemical that can escape from an unsecured exhaust system, and if inhaled can pose very serious health hazards. If you experience an unusually loud sound coming from your vehicle, it is vital to get your exhaust system checked immediately!
In order to promote safety, here are a few checkpoints that we recommend:
1. Have your vehicle's exhaust system inspected periodically.
2. Make sure mounts are secure and there are no cracks in your exhaust pipes.
3. Proper maintenance of your vehicle is essential to your catalytic converter – the device that redirects those damaging emissions.
Properly functioning exhaust systems can also help protect our environment from harmful emissions released into the atmosphere. If your exhaust system is efficient, it can reduce these harmful emissions, which is better for our environment, your car, and most importantly – you and your family. At Autoworks we offer a full line of exhaust service options, from high-performance mufflers to replacement systems. Call or come by the shop today so that we can get your vehicle taken care of.
