Maintaining Your Exhaust System

We here at DCH Kia of Temecula in Temecula, CA understand the importance of keeping up on the maintenance of your vehicle. Your exhaust system plays an important part in reducing emissions, and when your car needs some repairs we're here to help.

Identifying the problem can help to diagnose what needs to be done. If you find your car getting louder when you press the gas pedal, this could be a sign that you need a new muffler. If you see water dripping, on the other hand, this is normal behavior. Your engine creates water condensation through its normal function and gets removed from your vehicle through a muffler drain hole.

Other symptoms like smoke can depend on your vehicle. In some cases, your engine will create smoke normally during startup. But if you see excessive smoke coming out while driving, it could be time to get your car examined.
