Simple Answers from Cutting Edge Automotive for Winnipeg: Exhaust ServiceDec 23rd, 2018
My car failed its emissions test, what do I need to do?
Cutting Edge Automotive Answer:
Let’s get this out of the way: a leak in your exhaust system could be deadly. If Winnipeg drivers smell exhaust in the passenger cabin or hear an unusual exhaust sound, they should get their exhaust system checked and repaired. Talk to your Cutting Edge Automotive service advisor This is vital: Carbon monoxide in your exhaust is odorless, colorless and tasteless, and can be fatal to you and your passengers - so don’t delay if you suspect and exhaust leak.
There could be a number of reasons for a failed MB emissions test so some vital diagnostic work is in order. A common reason for Winnipeg drivers is that the catalytic converter has failed. The catalytic converter removes some of the harmful elements in exhaust.
When a catalytic converter fails it must be replaced, which isn’t cheap for Winnipeg drivers. Many Winnipeg folks stop there, but the converter failed for a reason. There may be any number of engine run conditions that led to the failure. It would certainly be smart to have your Cutting Edge Automotive service advisor diagnose the cause so that you don’t end up with another pricey catalytic converter replacement down the road.
Oh, and that Check Engine Light that so many Winnipeg drivers ignore: It might just be illuminated for a an essential condition that could lead to catalytic converter damage. Have your Cutting Edge Automotive service advisor get to the bottom of any check engine light situation.
