Symptoms of a Damaged Exhaust
No Noise Suppression
If your heavy-duty truck is far louder than it once was, you likely have an exhaust leak. Exhaust leaks are quite concerning, for if the leak is close to your passenger compartment, the fumes may be entering through your floorboards or drainage routes. Inhaling exhaust fumes can cause serious, long-lasting health issues, so be sure to get this leak patched. We here at GKT Truck Repair will weld your exhaust back together and replace any tubing that’s too far gone.
Rattling and Shaking Sounds
The exhaust fumes moving through your exhaust pipes can be extremely hot, meaning the metal of your pipes also gets hot. In order to protect your heavy-duty vehicle from heat damage, your exhaust is often accompanied by heat shields. These heat shields are a barrier between the heat and an important component. For example, you’ll likely have a heatshield protecting your floorboards and another protecting your fuel tank and lines. If you hear rattling or shaking sounds, these heat shields are likely about to fall off. To prevent heat damage, we highly recommend bringing your truck in for service. We’ll have your heat shields patched up and repaired in no time.
