Truck Exhaust System Maintenance


Exhaust Systems

When it comes to common truck repairs that need to be handled, exhaust systems are one of them. The exhaust system of your truck can be one of the most vulnerable systems throughout your truck. If a truck driver realizes the warning signs of a faulty or failing exhaust system, repairs can be made quickly to prevent serious damage. Some ways that truck drivers can help their exhaust systems include:

  • Be observant of smoke being released by your exhaust system. If the smoke being released is billowing and seems thicker than normal, there is more than likely a problem with your exhaust system.
  • Listen to your truck as it runs. If you happen to hear a loud rumbling or rattling noise, your muffler could be faulty and in need of replacement.
  • Make it part of your routine to check your muffler for rust and holes. Holes in your muffler could allow carbon monoxide to escape, providing a possibly fatal situation. Rust could allow your muffler to break during a commute.
  • Place the components of your exhaust system away from different elements of your vehicle like the fuel and breaks.
  • Consider upgrading your exhaust system. A high flow exhaust system allows your motor to breath easier and can also increase the fuel efficiency of your truck.
