Exhaust Repair Eugene, Oregon (97402)
Did you know that your vehicle’s exhaust system is designed not only to reduce noise, but also harmful environmental emissions? Mufflers and exhaust systems that work properly don’t only sound better, they are truly better- for your car, for you, and for the environment. Exhaust gas has many potentially poisonous pollutants and particles, including carbon monoxide. An exhaust system that leaks into the passenger cabin can be harmful and potentially life-threatening. At Jackson’s Complete Auto Care, your local Eugene, OR auto shop, we offer exhaust system and muffler service and repair. Putting off an exhaust repair almost always costs more than fixing it right away, so if your exhaust does not sound right, take it in to Jackson’s to get it checked out!
Exhaust System Overview
An exhaust system’s primary function is to safely conduct hot exhaust gas from inside the vehicle to outside (from the engine, leaving the car out the tailpipe). Most exhaust systems also treat the exhaust gas to remove pollutants and have a muffler to diminish engine noise. Exhaust manifolds connect to the engine’s cylinder heads, where the exhaust gases are collected. Exhaust gas is analyzed by oxygen sensors, then refined and de-polluted in the catalytic converter, then muffled by the muffler.
Top Signs You May Need Exhaust System Repair
- Fumes in the Passenger Compartment– If you smell fumes in your passenger cabin, (exhaust fumes or otherwise) schedule an appointment with Jackson’s Complete Auto Care in Eugene, Oregon. Drive with the windows down before you get your vehicle checked out to minimize exposure to the fumes.
- Hissing and Popping Noises- If you hear hissing and popping noises from your exhaust system, there is a good chance that there is an issue with your muffler, most likely a leak.
- Decreased Fuel Efficiency– A malfunctioning oxygen sensor or catalytic convertor in your car often leads to decreased fuel efficiency. If your vehicle’s engine seems to be working well, but your gas mileage seems to be noticeably lower than normal, it may be time to take your car into a Eugene, OR auto shop to get the exhaust system checked out.
