Muffler Repair Lodi NJ

So, you’re thinking your exhaust system might be in need of some repair. It’s usually the sort of thing you notice. A rather raucous rumble from the underside of your car is hard to miss. Believe it or not, though, there are more subtle signs as well as the major telltale ones. So today, we’ll give you a rundown of some of the things you’ll want to be on the lookout for, and what to do if it does turn out you’re in need of muffler repair in Lodi NJ. First, some signs of trouble: 

We’ll start with the obvious: noise. If you hear an especially deep or noise rumbling type of sound that wasn’t there before, it’s time to act. It might be annoying in the moment, but ultimately it’s going to help you catch a problem early that could turn into a much larger issue down the road (and hopefully not while you’re on the road).

What's that rumbling noise in my car?Another noise to watch out for that will  come in the form of a loud, gravelly rattle is a failing catalytic converter. This is another one you’ll need to get in right away to avoid escalating the problem exponentially.

Then there are some less obvious exhaust issues. Let’s say you’ve got a leak. How would you know? One sign might be that you feel a little less power than you’re used to with no other known explanation, and this might be accompanied by a bit of a vibration on the wheel or even the pedals. On the same note, a leak could be signaled by a loss of fuel efficiency, which you’ll notice if you tend to keep track of such things or if you run a pretty consistent driving schedule and are now stopping at the pump more often.
