If you operate a heavy vehicle, you need to ensure your exhaust system is properly maintained to keep your truck, bus or motor home operating at it’s full potential.
When it comes to heavy vehicle exhaust systems, there is NO ‘one size fits all’ approach. But you need to make it a priority to keep your exhaust system properly maintained, by a custom exhaust system specialist.
- Increased Overall Performance
Did you know? The integrity of your exhaust system has a far-reaching effect on the overall performance of your heavy vehicle. There are many different parts and components that make up your exhaust system, so you need to think of it as a bit like a sporting team – if ‘the parts’ fail to operate in unison – then ‘the system breaks down’!
There are some ‘tell tale signs’ that may indicate your exhaust system is in need of a service. But don’t leave it until it’s too late!
- Identify minor problems, before they develop into major issues.
Excessive smoke being emitted by your heavy vehicle is a warning sign that you need to get it checked out. The smoke indicates your vehicle has an issue that needs to be addressed.
The reasons for the smoke can be far reaching, and can cover a host of issues such as:
- a problem with your vehicle’s valves and seals, piston rings, or cylinder walls
- it could also mean you have a problem with your fuel injectors, fuel line, cylinder head, or engine block
- or your heavy vehicle may have even sustained a cracked or damaged head gasket
Exhaust leaks, clogged mufflers, excessive vibrations and increased engine noise also need to be attended to, as they will be having an impact on the overall performance of your heavy vehicle.
