Change In Fuel Mileage? Check Your Exhaust

When a motor starts to lack power, it can be a sign of a leaking exhaust system. A car’s engine has to work harder, which causes it to burn more fuel when the exhaust system is not performing correctly.

The exhaust system consists of the tailpipe, muffler, resonator, catalytic converter, and the exhaust manifold. All of these components work together to remove dangerous gases that build up in the engine. Leaks can occur over time because the system is contracting and expanding. These leaks can allow gases to build up in the car’s cabin. These gases are fatal. They are odorless, so you will not be able to detect them.

New sounds, such as pops or high-pitched hisses coming from the engine or tailpipe, are another signal that your exhaust is leaking.
