Signs of a Damaged Exhaust System

Don’t know what to look out for in a damaged exhaust system? Since exhaust systems are attached to the bottom of diesel trucks, they are more prone to corrosion and leaks than other components, leading to cracks or holes that can result in a noisy and inefficient engine. Here are some common signs of a damaged exhaust system to look out for:

  • Loud or Unusual Noises: rattling, hissing, or popping sounds could indicate a loose or damaged component.
  • Decreased Performance: a clogged or damaged muffler or after-treatment component could negatively affect engine performance.
  • Strong Exhaust Smell: a strong smell of exhaust fumes inside or outside the truck may indicate a leak. It’s a must to get this fixed as soon as possible as exhaust fumes seeping into the passenger compartment could lead to health concerns.
  • Decreased Fuel Efficiency: a damaged exhaust system can cause the engine to work harder, leading to increased fuel consumption and higher costs.
  • Rust or Corrosion: rust or corrosion can weaken pipes and cause leaks, which can lead to safety issues.

What Problems Can A Bad Exhaust Cause?

A bad exhaust system can cause a decrease in power, acceleration, and fuel economy. In addition to mechanical issues, exhaust leaks can cause harmful emissions to enter the cabin and result in health concerns such as headaches, migraines, or nausea.

Exhaust leaks are generally caused by wear and tear or road debris, which can weaken the structural strength of the exhaust system. Loose heat shields, which are designed to protect the underside of the truck from the extreme heat contained in the exhaust system, can also cause issues if they become loose or fall off.

If you experience any of the above issues, it's vital to have your exhaust system inspected and repaired by professionals before they become more serious. Our technicians at EIP Diesel Repair can provide services ranging from simple fixes such as tightening connections or replacing a section of piping to more complex repairs such as replacing the entire system.
