What Does This Exhaust Color Mean?

If you’ve noticed that your car has thick smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe, it may be a sign that your engine needs some attention. Just like you can examine an animal’s stool to get an idea of its health, you can pay attention to the quality of your car’s exhaust to get an idea of what’s going on inside the engine. As the engine burns fuel and creates exhaust, lots of different things are happening.

Unfortunately, some of these things aren’t supposed to happen. Things like burning oil, evaporating coolant and leaving unburned fuel in the exhaust — these are not good to see. Pay attention to what’s coming out and you can get a good idea as to what problems your engine may be having, often before they get bad. This saves you money.

Exhaust piping can leak for a number of factors. Rust, cracks, scrapes and holes can develop over the span of the vehicle and require fixing.

But if the damage is too extensive we at Guanella will take care of your Exhaust System in a jiffy.
