Could Your Exhaust System Have a Leak?

Your vehicle's exhaust system is designed to safely carry burned fuel away from your engine and out through the tailpipe. A leaky exhaust system can cause engine damage, as well as other problems. But how do you know if you have a leak? The Honda service team at Pensacola Honda can help you out.

  • Burning rubber smell - Leaking hot gas around the exhaust manifold can burn spark plug wires.
  • Rusty tailpipe or muffler - A leaky exhaust system allows water vapor to condense. This condensation sits and causes rust, which can cause serious damage to metal components.
  • Hissing or popping sounds - Small leaks can be heard in the engine compartment, underneath the vehicle or near the end of the tailpipe.
  • Reduced gas mileage - The engine has to overwork to compensate for a leak. This eats up a lot of gas.

At Pensacola Honda, our technicians inspect every vehicle's exhaust system as part of our regular service procedure. Call our Pensacola, FL dealership for a comprehensive inspection today!
