Did you know that the main cause of leaking exhaust components is good old salt from snow/ice covered winter roads or simply steel exhaust brackets/hangers rotting away or rubber hangers?
Broken engine mounts are often the culprit. In the case of a front flex pipe or flex joint tearing failure broken engine mounts can result in excessive engine movement. Broken retaining bolts or studs are a major cause of exhaust manifold leaks or the manifolds simply crack. Sometimes exhaust systems are damaged by running over objects in the road way or backing up into curbs.
We can install a simple muffler tail pipe extension pipe/resonator assembly or perform complicated repairs to exhaust manifold/catalytic converter units or removal of exhaust manifolds and drilling out broken studs from cylinder heads. We even offer a mid winter exhaust wash to remove harmful salt from your exhaust system since exhausts are ravaged by mother nature even at 40 below. Exhaust systems are checked during every oil change for any exhaust repair to make sure they are attached securely and are not leaking or heavily corroded to the point of failure.
We can provide you with Walker Advantage mufflers that carry a lifetime warranty as well as catalytic converters that will actually pass an emission test. Remember that carbon monoxide emitted from your exhaust system can cause you to lose consciousness and ultimately result in death if you do not get fresh air in a hurry. If you suspect an exhaust leak or are stuck in deep snow, roll down your window 1 inch when your vehicle is running and get your system checked for exhaust repair as soon as possible.
