Exhaust Repair

 

Weíve all heard a car or truck in our Providence and Warwick RI suburban neighborhoods that needs a new muffler. But thereís more to the exhaust system than just the muffler.

 

 The exhaust system has three main functions:

  • To safely get hot exhaust gas from the engine out the tailpipe

  • Treats the exhaust to remove harmful pollutants

  • Muffle the engine noise

Exhaust gas is poisonous. You donít want it getting into the passenger compartment. For example, carbon monoxide can be deadly. Thatís why you should never run your engine in a closed garage. If you have a leak in the exhaust system, exhaust could get into the passenger cabin and make you sick or even kill you.

 

If you smell exhaust in the vehicle, roll down your windows and get it inspected. You may smell or see exhaust coming from the engine compartment or under the vehicle if you have a leak. Sometimes the sound from an exhaust leak is loud and obvious. Sometimes itís a ticking sound when you start the engine that goes away as you drive. That could be a small crack or a bad fitting that leaks when itís cold but seals up when the metal heats and expands.

 

Now, letís address the environmental issues for our Providence and Warwick RI communities. Exhaust gas contains a number of pollutants and particulates. The catalytic converter scrubs some of those harmful substances. And diesel vehicles have systems to deal with soot.

 

 

DID YOU KNOW? Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths. It's a dangerous and potentially lethal toxin. Excessive exposure to auto exhaust can cause brain damage and even death. If you see, smell or hear exhaust anywhere but the tailpipe, get an auto inspection right away. Call International Motor Group at 401-885-4044 or Schedule an appointment online and help keep yourself safely and economically on the road.

Catalytic Converters

Catalytic converters eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Theyíre expensive so you want to help them last as long as possible by keeping the fuel system clean and replacing your air filter. These components need to be tested for function with an emissions test from time to time.

 

And that leaves the muffler. The beauty of getting a new muffler is that you can suit your taste: Some want whisper quiet and others like a little rumble. And some like a roar when they drive down our Providence and Warwick RI streets.
