An Exhaust Leak is Easily Identifiable

As a vehicle owner, you know your vehicle better than anyone else; therefore, you’re the first person to know if anything seems different. Although it is imperative to have repairs completed by a qualified technician, as a vehicle owner, there are indicators for you to identify an exhaust leak.

Often times, you will notice a "hissing" sound coming from the engine as a first indication. Because your exhaust system was designed to confine gases and fumes, it becomes a safety hazard when there is a leak. Those gases and fumes can enter the engine or the interior of the vehicle, which is something that you do not want to occur. If an exhaust system has a restricted air flow, then you will hear a whistling sound, which is much more serious.
