Signs Your Exhaust Might be Leaking

The exhaust system is an important aspect of your vehicle’s performance. When you notice fumes or noises, it’s an indicator that the exhaust isn’t functioning as it should. There are some symptoms that will indicate it may be time to have your car serviced.

If you smell fumes, there is leak somewhere. The manifold gasket, for instance, could have worn out. Another sign is a popping sound in the engine, or you might have noticed discoloration at the tailpipe. The exhaust connects to the manifold and is responsible for removing the air and gas mixture from the engine’s cylinders. Letting the exhaust go too long may end up burning out the spark plugs.
