Northeast Ohio is tough on cars and trucks. Wintertime road salt, bumpy rides over stripped roads during “orange barrel” and resurfacing season, and damp conditions in the spring and fall, rust is practically a foregone conclusion for most North Canton, Ohio vehicles. You probably know where to look for oxidation on the body of your Massillon, Ohio vehicle, but there’s an important component that you may be overlooking: your exhaust system. Despite it being mostly hidden from view, its job is of the utmost importance. If you suspect that you may need your Canal Fulton, Ohio muffler replaced or other exhaust system repairs, it’s time to call Wales Auto Repair. Not sure how to tell that there’s a problem with your Canton, Ohio car or truck? The technicians at Wales Auto Repair will be happy to perform an exhaust system inspection to look for potential issues, and save you a more costly repair in the future!
Problems with your car’s exhaust system are not always readily apparent. It may take some time before you realize that you’re not getting the fuel efficiency that you used to when driving from one side of Canton to the other. Wondering that that has to do with your exhaust system? It could mean that there’s a problem with your oxygen sensors, causing an imbalance in the fuel to air ratio. Exhaust system repairs performed by Wales Auto Repair will restore the proper balance, and have you running at maximum efficiency once again.
Of course, some common exhaust problems are pretty hard to miss, like a rusted or cracked muffler. The noise isn’t even the worst thing that your truck is emitting when your muffler needs repair; it’s likely that you’re also emitting some pretty noxious gases, as well. So, forget the hat and dark sunglasses disguise you’ve donned because you don’t want to be recognized as the driver of that exceptionally loud vehicle, just head straight to Wales Auto Repair in North Canton to get your muffler replaced!
Speaking of leaking chemicals… Small holes in pipes, loose gaskets, worn seals and more can cause exhaust to leak into the cabin of the vehicle. This is the most dangerous of all exhaust problems as carbon monoxide is a noxious gas that can cause serious medical issues for you or your passengers in small doses, and is lethal in large quantities. An exhaust system inspection for your Canal Fulton car at Wales Auto Repair can prevent this from happening. They can test the pipes for weakness caused by rust or rot that may not yet be visible, detect pinholes, and ensure that all brackets and hangers are properly attached, so you won’t get out of your car one day only to discover that you’ve been dragging your tailpipe all over Massillon. (Which is yet another hazard to other drivers, as you could be throwing up sparks!)
It is recommended that you have an exhaust system inspection at least once a year to help you avoid emergency exhaust system repairs on your Canton, Ohio or Massillon, Ohio vehicle “down the road.” Whether you need your muffler replaced or you’re just taking preventative measures, call Wales Auto Repair at 330.497.9398 today, or make the short trip from Canal Fulton, Ohio to 6834 Wales Road NW, North Canton, Ohio.
