Does your gas pedal, steering wheel, or floorboards vibrate when you're driving? Do you hear a whistling or hissing sound when you press the gas pedal? Are you hearing increasingly loud noises coming from in or around your car's engine? Is your vehicle also experiencing poor fuel efficiency? These are all signs of a potential exhaust leak and should not be ignored.

A properly working exhaust system helps to reduce the harmful exhaust emissions your vehicle produces before they are expelled from your tailpipe. A breakdown in the system could result in emissions of toxic carbon monoxide getting into your vehicle and seriously harming you and/or your passengers. And because carbon monoxide is both colorless and odorless, people may not be aware of the toxic fumes they are breathing in. They could become very sick or even die.

While carbon monoxide is odorless, other harmful emissions are not. Therefore, if your vehicle is producing an unfamiliar odor, that may also be an indicator of an exhaust leak. Your safety and that of your passengers is vital. If your vehicle is experiencing any of these problems, be sure to bring it to an auto repair service center to be checked out.
