When a vehicle owner needs auto exhaust repair in Mesa, trying to decide which garage to bring the car to can be confusing. So many garages offer this type of service and some seem to specialize in a few specific kinds of repair and replacement work. Sometimes the services offered are categorized in ways that can be bewildering to the average consumer, but there are reasons mechanics view their work this way.
For instance, a
full-service garage might group auto exhaust repair in Mesa with
brake repairs. That’s a relatively common grouping. Both types of
service require the vehicle to be up on a hoist as opposed to the
mechanic mainly doing work under the hood. Exhaust system repair
usually requires replacement of a specific part, most commonly the
muffler and tailpipe combination component.
inspect the exhaust system whenever the vehicle has to be up on a
lift for any reason. However, the vehicle owner normally realizes the
system has a problem when it starts to get noisy with a rumbling
sound that gets progressively louder over time. A muffler, as can be
expected from the name of this component, is intended to dampen the
sound from an internal combustion engine’s exhaust. Without a
muffler, vehicles are very noisy.
symptom with the exhaust indicates a problem elsewhere in the
vehicle. For example, the owner may notice an odor of gasoline coming
from the tailpipe. In some cases, liquid gas drips from the tailpipe.
This is a dangerous situation and should be addressed immediately.
The cause is excess fuel in the gasoline and air mixture. A fuel
injector may be leaking or the fuel regulator might be stuck in the
closed position. Other problems also can cause this to happen.
Mesa, like most municipalities, has laws requiring passenger vehicles to have mufflers that are in good condition to minimize noise. The regulation says the vehicle cannot be producing excessive or unusual noise. What that means exactly will be up to the police officer who issues a warning citation. Anyone having exhaust system problems may schedule an appointment at the earliest convenience.
