The Importance of Exhaust System Maintenance

Exhaust systems reside in the underbelly of the trucks in your fleet. Although heat shields protect most components of your exhaust system, they’re still prone to wear and tear due to their proximity to the road. As such, they are susceptible to corrosion, rust, and leaks. If left unchecked, a damaged exhaust system can decrease power, acceleration, fuel economy and even health concerns for your operators due to exhaust gases seeping into the cabin. That's why it's essential to have your exhaust system inspected and maintained regularly.

Signs of Exhaust System Issues

Loud or unusual noises, decreased performance, strong exhaust smells, decreased fuel efficiency, and rust or corrosion are common signs of exhaust system issues. Ignoring these signs may lead to decreased power, acceleration, fuel economy, and harmful emissions entering the cabin, resulting in health concerns such as headaches, migraines, or nausea.

Although some of these symptoms will help you pinpoint the problem (loud noises, strong exhaust smells), others are more difficult to spot. When you bring one of your trucks to our shop, we’ll inspect the entire exhaust system to ensure everything works as intended.

Causes of Exhaust Leaks

Exhaust leaks are generally caused by wear and tear or road debris. Over time, rust may build up on your exhaust, weakening its structural strength and leading to leaks. Loose heat shields, which protect the underside of your vehicle from the extreme heat contained in the exhaust system, are also at risk of falling off due to corrosion or road debris.

Great shop and people! I was very glad to find this shop cause they were able to fix the mechanical issue of my box truck (truck didnt start due to bad injector seal) that other shops around were not able to. I definitely recommend this shop to any truckers in the area. Dustin is a great  person to deal with. His knowledge and experience is incredible and will help to keep your fleet running! Thank you, Elite Truck & Bus Center!

Dustin knew I was having issues with my AC on my Supra and was able to squeeze me in around my schedule. Once I got there, Luis went through a thorough diagnostic of my AC unit and saw there was a leak somewhere in the system. He recharged my AC and had me on my way! Elite was definitely a huge help. Thank you so much again!
