Your exhaust is responsible for a lot more than just noise suppression. Using a series of tubes and catalytic converters, your exhaust is designed to protect both you and the environment from harmful emissions. Since your exhaust sits very low, it’s very susceptible to rusting apart. This is especially true if you drive through the various rustbelt regions of North America. Here at IBEX Diesel Repair, we perform exhaust services of all kinds. Whether it be welding up exhaust leaks or repairing damaged heat shield mounts, you can rest assured knowing you’ll get the high-quality services you deserve here at IBEX Diesel Repair.
Symptoms of a Damaged Exhaust System
Loud Engine Noise
If your engine is very loud, you may have a leak in one of your exhaust pipes. Exhaust leaks are actually quite common and are usually caused by rust damage or contact with road debris. Fortunately, exhaust leaks are quite easy to patch with the right welding equipment. If you have an exhaust leak, be sure not to wait too long before getting it fixed, for damage to the pipes increases the risk of fumes entering your passenger compartment.
Rattling Heat Shields
Your heat shields are designed to protect your heavy-duty commercial vehicle from the heat of your engine and exhaust. Since they’re very close to the ground, they’re prone to rusting away and falling off. This is especially true for trucks that routinely travel through North America’s rust belt. If your heat shields fail, your truck is more susceptible to heat damage. Extreme heat can melt your brake lines, damage your air compressors, and even ignite fumes coming from your gas tank. For these reasons, amongst others, be sure to get your truck serviced if you hear rattling heat shields.
