A vehicle’s emissions system may seem basic and straightforward, but there’s actually a lot of complex components and engineering that make everything work. Essentially, emissions systems carry exhaust fumes away from your car’s engine and toward the rear of the car. But, these systems also muffle the noise of your engine and clean your exhaust fumes. If you need emissions repair services in the Arlington Heights, IL area, rely on Wheeling Auto Center.
Many people think that a vehicle’s exhaust system is just designed for muffling. Actually, your emissions system is critical to your vehicle’s performance and your environmental impact as well. A leak in your exhaust can make your car sound much louder than it should and allow harmful carbon monoxide into your passenger cabin. However, a malfunctioning O2 (oxygen) sensor can cause efficiency and performance problems as well, harming your gas mileage. Poor catalytic converter function can cause the release of harmful gasses into the air, hurting the environment, and even causing you to fail IL emissions standards.
Regardless of the problem with your vehicle’s exhaust system, Wheeling Auto Center is here to fix it quickly and have you back on the road affordably. We’ll diagnose the problem fast and recommend the ideal solution for value and performance.
