When your exhaust system begins to fail, you will definitely be able to identify that there is a problem based on some key signs. For example, one of the biggest indicators of damage in the form of cracks or rust in the system is the sharp odor. This is generally caused by fumes leaking into your cabin because the system is no longer able to direct emissions away from your vehicle. These gases that include carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide are dangerous to breathe in, making it highly important for you to see a mechanic if you begin to notice it.
Other signs that your exhaust system and muffler are either failing or in need of repairs are:
- Rattling while starting your car or accelerating
- Excessive idling
- Other loud noises
- Smell of sulfur (indicative of catalytic converter damage)
