Muffler Repair Thousand Oaks
Muffler Repair Thousand Oaks, Complete Exhaust and Catalytic Converter ServiceWhen you buy a new car some of the things you prize are the new car smell and the quiet ride. When you relax in your yard enjoying a quiet day, you don’t really appreciate the car that comes down the block that you can hear before it ever gets near your house. What’s the first thing you say? Why doesn’t that guy get his muffler fixed? Since you live in California, you know the importance of keeping your emissions control systems in optimum shape. The last thing you want is to flunk an emissions test. That’s why you need a reliable muffler repair in Thousand Oaks that can spot problems with your muffler, exhaust and catalytic converter before they become a huge problem.
Your exhaust system is an important component of your car. It consists of several parts; the muffler, catalytic converter, tail pipes, exhaust manifold and oxygen sensor. All of these components work together to make your car run quietly, convert harmful emission gasses to carbon dioxide and water and to ensure that the harmful gasses produced by the combustion engine are diverted through the tailpipes instead of allowing deadly fumes inside your vehicle.
The greatest threat to a fully functioning exhaust system is rust. In Thousand Oaks we don’t have to worry about the detrimental effects of roadway salt on our vehicles, but we still have to worry about rust. Rust in the exhaust system occurs when the water vapor in your system converts to water. The heat of the exhaust system evaporates the water so it doesn’t sit in the system’s components. If you take mostly short trips, the system doesn’t get hot enough to evaporate the water and it sits in the system and eventually rusts it. When that happens, you can get holes in your muffler, exhaust or catalytic converter and your problems begin. Over time, you can also get cracks simply from normal use.
How Do You Know if You Have a Problem?
If the inside of your car smells like fumes, you likely have a problem. If you smell fumes roll down your window to allow fresh air into your car. You should quickly have a reliable service center such as ours examine your exhaust system as you can also be getting carbon monoxide fumes in your car, which, of course, are odorless.
Hissing noises or popping noises can also indicate problems with your exhaust system as can rattling noises which could be indicative of loose components. Sometimes your system may simply need an adjustment such as tightening loose connections, but frequently you need parts of your system replaced. Of course, if your car starts sounding like a Harley, you know you have a problem
