When and Why Your Nissan May Need Exhaust System Service

It’s easy for the layman to view their vehicle as an engine and car body, forgetting about the subsystems required to assure peak performance. That’s why there is a maintenance schedule included with the owner’s manual and ideally, an ongoing relationship with your local Nissan dealer to assure the systems are cared for over the years. The exhaust system is designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle, but can become damaged or require replacement parts occasionally. The system starts with the steel manifold, which links the engine to the rest of the system. That is followed by a catalytic converter, which reduces air pollution and exhaust fumes, then a muffler that absorbs the engine’s noise as the car runs. Those parts in your Nissan are followed by the actual exhaust pipe, which you can see extending from the rear of the car whether it is plain as coming straight from the factory or might have decorative elements added to it.

Typical and Atypical Exhaust Maintenance Issues

The most typical issue which comes up with the exhaust system is the muffler gets clogged or overheated, preventing it from doing the job it was intended to perform as internal components burn out. It’s a fairly simple job for the professional technician to remove the old muffler and install a new one. Another common issue is the catalytic converter becomes clogged. That’s not going to be a noticeable problem until the vehicle fails an annual safety inspection for spewing more pollution than is allowed. Less typical issues will be if the exhaust pipe itself is damaged, either from a traffic accident or a major incident involving a bad pothole or running over a curb.

Symptoms of a Failing Exhaust System

If the muffler wears out, the vehicle will be far louder than tolerable. Unfortunately, that happens over a year or more as the problem gets worse. The driver will often become accustomed to the noise level as it gets worse and never fully realize it’s a problem until friends or neighbors point out how loud the car has become. If the catalytic converter has become compromised, the vehicle will experience a loss of power and poor gas mileage, but probably not at a level the driver will notice. This is why most states require an annual inspection; if you live in a state that doesn’t, it’s still important to have a private inspection conducted regularly to assure the vehicle is running as intended.
