The most common exhaust system repairs our customers ask about deals with their vehicle’s muffler and catalytic converter. These two parts work together to help minimize your car’s sound and reduce the amount of pollutants discharged by your vehicle. Your vehicle’s muffler and catalytic converter are built to endure high contact from the road. Normally, if the muffler or catalytic converter aren’t functioning correctly, then there is an issue with another car part.
Having fuel system or other engine issues can lead to unburned fuel deposits getting to the catalytic converter. When this happens, the catalytic converter can get too hot and progressively erode the steel covering inside. The whole system will break down and leave you with costly repairs. This issue can be really expensive, however it is preventable.
Avoid exhaust system issues by properly taking good care of your vehicle. If you think you need exhaust system service or repair, drop by Christian Brothers Automotive at 17330 Evans St. Omaha, NE 68116, or call and arrange an appointment.
