How Can You Figure Out If An Exhaust System Is Leaking?

As durable an exhaust system may be, the components don't last forever. Several mechanical woes contribute to the need to replace an exhaust system. An exhaust leak definitely is something to be vigilant about.

Looking at the exhaust manifold may reveal obvious leaks. The gaskets, in particular, could be leaking. Don't limit yourself to gaskets, though. When making a visual inspection, look at the entire exhaust system. Pay particular attention to the gaskets. Unfortunately, without a garage's vehicle lift, making a proper inspection becomes difficult.

Feel the Horsepower

If you have ever wondered where the term horsepower came from it came from the 18th century. James Watt was a man who sold steam engines and wanted to relay how much power his engines could put out. He compared them to the power of a horse, and the term horsepower was born.

One horsepower is the same as a pony pulling 33 pounds for one minute. The more horsepower the better because it means that it has a lot more power and the ability to do more such as in your vehicle.

These laws cover all response vehicles including the fire department, law enforcement, paramedics, and tow truck drivers. Basically, if you see any flashing lights up ahead, you should get ready to move over a lane to give them some extra room.
