Exhaust System Problems

The manifold, catalytic converter, muffler, and tailpipe are known to reduce noise. However, more importantly, the system is responsible for converting harmful gases and eliminating them from the vehicle.

As the gases are colorless and odorless, vehicle owners may not initially be aware of the problem.

Feet kick seats, cries are issued and finally, in a moment of desperation, your little guy bites his older sister’s arm.
