How to Spot an Exhaust Leak

The exhaust system moves gases out of the engine. The exhaust system has several components, and each component has to work correctly. If the components are not working properly, the fumes will not be disposed of properly. The gasses must be pushed out of the vehicle and into the atmosphere. If the exhaust system is leaking, poisonous gases can move into the cabin. Fortunately, there are signs that can indicate an exhaust leak.

A crackling sound coming from the tailpipe can be caused by a blockage in the tailpipe. The paint might be discolored near the cylinder head. Burnt spark plugs usually accompany discolored paint and strange sounds. When the exhaust manifold gasket is overextended, a small leak will become a big leak.
