Exhaust & Muffler service
The exhaust system of your vehicle is vulnerable to wear and damage from the environment. It is exposed to dirt, stones, snow, salt, and many other road hazards. A defective or damaged exhaust system can cause your engine to run less efficiently and increase fuel consumption.
There are many reasons why your vehicle’s A/C and heating system might be experiencing issues. Below you will find a list of the most common reasons these systems tend to breakdown:

Frequently Asked Questions
The muffler prevents your car’s engine from sounding like it is on a motorcycle. Your neighbours will notice if your muffler is gone. The muffler in your car is designed to reduce noise.
Your muffler can be used to reduce engine sounds as a resonator. Note that your vehicle may sound harsher or raspier due to a leak.
It is the key to reducing harmful exhaust emissions from a vehicle’s engine. The Catalytic Converter alters the chemical structure of hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide to make harmless carbon dioxides, water, and nitrogen. The Catalytic converter heats up quickly and should be between 450 and 800 degrees Celsius.
The oxygen sensor is located in the exhaust pipe of your car and monitors your exhaust emissions. Your car’s central computer receives continuous data from the oxygen sensor, which continuously monitors the oxygen levels in your exhaust. The computer adjusts the mixture to ensure that your vehicle has clean combustion.
You shouldn’t be concerned if you see thin, white smoke at the start of your journey or when the exhaust is cold. Once the exhaust system and the engine are at the proper temperature, the smoke should cease.
It is possible to have more problems if you do not make frequent short trips and are exposed to white smoke which is evaporated water vapour.
The exhaust won’t evaporate all the condensation if it doesn’t reach its correct temperature. This could cause corrosion and cause rust in your exhaust system.
The exhaust system and mufflers are extremely sophisticated. Your muffler is technically a baffled device that allows exhaust gases to pass through it and muffle engine sounds. If you took out your muffler you would find tubes with holes. It sounds simple but these components work together to reduce noise. Your muffler actually works as a fine instrument.
Black smoke is not something you should be concerned about if you drive a diesel vehicle. It could be uncombusted diesel coming out of your exhaust if you only notice it after the engine has been switched on. Once your engine reaches the proper temperature, or you stop accelerating, it should disappear.
If the black smoke continues to come from your diesel car and is persistent or more frequent, it could be a more serious problem. Most likely culprit? Worn fuel injectors!
Your car knows exactly how much fuel to inject. It will run smoothly if it injects the correct amount of fuel through its nozzle.
However, the nozzle can expand over time. Your vehicle will know exactly how much fuel you should inject but it won’t be able to tell how much.
The nozzle should not be too large. This will cause too much fuel to get injected into your engine. This can lead to incompletion and large amounts of black smoke.
