Exhaust Repair & Replacement

Many people think an exhaust leak or broken pipe is nothing more than a noisy inconvenience. The fact is, a faulty exhaust system can have a severe negative impact on engine performance and increase your emissions output. We perform vehicle exhaust system repairs in Saskatoon.

Your vehicle’s exhaust system is made up of many parts. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Exhaust valves: these valves release combusted gas from your engine and allow them to enter your exhaust system.
  • Exhaust manifold
  • Catalytic converter: Converts some toxins to carbon dioxide (CO2) and water for cleaner emissions.
  • Exhaust pipes including front pipes, down pipes, mid pipes and tail pipes.
  • Muffler/resonator

Exhaust system components do not have a set service schedule as outlined in your owners manual. Typically, repairs are done as needed when there is a failure or issue. However, the exhaust system should be regularly inspected. Saskatoon Auto Connection includes this as part of our visual and comprehensive inspections.

 

What Are the Signs of an Exhaust System Failure?

The most common signs of a broken or damaged exhaust system are:

  • Loud exhaust noises, usually indicative of an exhaust leak/hole
  • Poor fuel efficiency
  • Failed emissions test
  • Decreased power and/or acceleration
  • Burning/smoke smell
  • Hanging exhaust components from underneath your vehicle

 

Dangers of an Exhaust System Failure?

The most common signs of a broken or damaged exhaust system are:

  • Deadly carbon monoxide gases can enter the vehicle cabin. CO gas is colourless and odourless.
  • Dragging exhaust components can tear off and strike your rear wheels or strike vehicles travelling behind you.
  • Broken exhaust components laying on the roadway can cause vehicles to swerve, puncture tires, or get caught up in another driver's vehicle undercarriage.
  • Sparks or excessive heat can ignite fires.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or suspect an issue with your exhaust system, call Saskatoon Auto Connection to book an appointment.
