There's one very obvious way to tell if your exhaust needs repairing. It makes a louder noise. Don't let it reach the point where your neighbours run for cover when you start your car in the morning.
The warning signs of a worn exhaust system are not always so obvious. A worn exhaust system will affect your car's performance so have your car's exhaust system checked regularly by a specialist.
Since 1986, car manufacturers have been required by law to fit all new passenger vehicles with catalytic converters. A catalytic converter transforms harmful exhaust gases into elements which are environmentally friendly. In other words, it takes out the nasties.
These poisonous pollutants are actually converted into harmless nitrogen, carbon dioxide and water by your catalytic converter. So what comes out of your exhaust pipe won't harm mother nature.
If you want to get better performance from your car, the exhaust system is a good place to start.
Extractors are an inexpensive way to boost the power of your engine. You'll be surprised at the difference.
