As your vehicle runs, the engine emits harmful gases as part of the combustion process. The exhaust system controls and converts those gases into less harmful gases to protect your passengers and the environment. A common cause of an exhaust system problem is a failing catalytic converter. The catalytic converter is an important component of the exhaust system, because it is the part that converts harmful gases and converts them into less harmful ones. A faulty catalytic converter will usually need to be replaced. Problems with the actual exhaust can be detected if the exhaust is suddenly very loud, is hanging, or you start to smell gas when your vehicle is running.
Common problems with the exhaust/emissions system include:
- Bad catalytic converter
- Clogged muffler
- Faulty oxygen sensor
