Symptoms of a Leaky Exhaust System

Exhaust systems don't last forever because they're constantly exposed to water and corrosive agents like road salt. There are a number of signs that your exhaust system may have developed leaks.

The most common sign of a leaky exhaust system is engine noise. When exhaust pipes and mufflers corrode to the point of developing holes, you'll begin to hear the full roar of your engine. A less obvious sign of exhaust system trouble is a loss of gas mileage. When the engine loses back pressure from an exhaust leak, its performance will suffer. Any strange noises like high-pitched hissing, pops, and whistles that come from the tail pipe also can be a sign that the exhaust system should be inspected.
