Check your exhaust system annually

May 7, 2023

How often should you check your exhaust system on your vehicle?
The frequency at which you should check your exhaust system depends on a few factors, including your driving habits, the climate you live in, and the age of your vehicle. However, as a general rule of thumb, you should have your exhaust system inspected at least once a year.

Here are some signs that your exhaust system may need to be checked by your local Powerflow Exhaust dealer:

Loud exhaust noise: If your exhaust is louder than usual, it could be a sign of a leak or other problem.
Excessive smoke: If you see excessive smoke coming from your exhaust, it could be a sign of a problem with the engine or the exhaust system.
Poor fuel economy: If your fuel economy has suddenly decreased, it could be a sign of a problem with the exhaust system.
Rust or corrosion: If you see rust or corrosion on your exhaust system, it’s a good idea to have it checked out.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s a good idea to have your exhaust system inspected by your nearest Powerflow Exhaust dealer. They can help you determine if there is a problem and, if so, what needs to be done to fix it.

We check the following when inspecting your exhaust system:

Leaks: Look for any signs of leaks, such as rust, corrosion, or wetness.
Connections: Make sure that all of the connections in the exhaust system are tight.
Muffler Inspection: Check the muffler for any signs of damage, such as cracks or holes.
Tailpipe Inspection: Check the tailpipe for any signs of damage, such as cracks or holes.

If we find any problems with your exhaust system, we’ll advise you on the best solution for repairs or replacement of your exhaust system.
