How to Tell if Your Exhaust is Leaking

The engine of your vehicle puts out fumes through the exhaust system. When all is working properly, these gases are released into the air, but if there is a leak or other malfunction of this exhaust system, you and your passengers could be in danger of inhaling these toxic gasses. It is very important to know the signs of an exhaust leak so you can get it taken care of right away. Here are some tell-tale signs of an exhaust leak:

  • You hear a whistling or popping sound coming from the vehicle's tailpipe.
  • The steering wheel shakes while the engine is running.
  • You notice a decrease in the vehicle's driving power and speed.
  • There is a noticeable decrease in gas mileage.

If your vehicle seems to be suffering from any of these symptoms, we invite you to visit our dealership service department to have your exhaust system checked.
