The exhaust system is located on the underside of your vehicle and is responsible for collecting and directing harmful emissions away from the vehicle. This reduces the amount of pollutants that are released into the environment, and minimizes the engine exhaust noise and force. Depending upon the problem, the exhaust system can affect both your vehicle’s performance and your ability to drive. For these reasons, it is important to keep current with maintenance intervals on your exhaust system at Signature Repairs in Barrie, Ontario.
