Your exhaust system is designed to remove harmful gases from the engine and evacuate them to the atmosphere. In many cases, a “tuned exhaust” can result in more power and a better sound. We at USA Automotive have many years of experience inspecting and installing both replacement and performance exhaust systems. We know how to give you the power and sound you want and need!
Just as important, an exhaust system must be free-flowing and tightly sealed to prevent toxic gases from escaping into the passenger area or any area too close to the vehicle. Signs of leakage are ticking noises while the engine is running, a “rotten egg” smell, or excessive drowsiness when at the wheel. If you’re experiencing any of these systems, let USA Automotive do a quick inspection to make sure your exhaust system is reliable and safe. Call us at (773) 238-1333 at the first sign of any damage.
There are also many sensors along the length of your exhaust system that measure exhaust gas content, to help the engine management system adjust the fuel injection to the correct air/fuel ratio. These are regular service items, and may need replacement if not working at maximum efficiency.
