Your Exhaust System and Its Possible Problems

If your vehicle seems to be having exhaust problems, EPR can help!  When people think of a car’s exhaust system, they usually think of the muffler. But there are other components to the exhaust system, and over the years, automakers have developed more and more sophisticated ways to increase efficiency, reduce noise, and limit emissions. Your exhaust system includes your muffler, piping, and a catalytic converter, which reduces pollution.

Guess what – all of these can fail in various ways and can cause trouble for your vehicle’s performance and safety. Plus, problems with the exhaust system can cause you to fail Maryland emissions inspections!
