Clark Automotive is proud to be a part of our local community of Blaine and we take our responsibility to do our part to minimize the negative impact of automobiles on the environment very seriously. There is no getting around the fact that automobiles are major contributors to atmospheric pollution, but they do not need to be. Ensuring that your vehicle is operating efficiently and that it meets the standards set by the state and federal government means that we have a fighting chance to protect our environment. Taking helpful steps can be as simple as bringing your vehicle to our repair shop when it develops problems with its exhaust system.
Exhaust System Repair Blaine MN
Most new automobiles burn fuel much more efficiently and cleanly than autos of generations past. However, the problem is that, as the world’s population has grown, so has the number of cars and trucks on the world’s roads. In countries like China and India, which are much more densely populated than the United States and where regulation of automobiles is not as stringent, automobiles pollute much more than they do in the United States.
Even if your interests do not extend to protecting the environment, fixing your exhaust system when a problem arises will save you money and transportation difficulty in the long run. That is because a problem with the exhaust system–such as a leak due to corrosion or impact with an object–means that the entire system is at risk for running much less efficiently. Damage to one or more components of the exhaust system will get worse over time. In other words, if you happen to hit an object in the road that creates a hole in your exhaust system, that hole is not going to get smaller on its own. This could also create an environmental issue of a different kind–the internal environment of your vehicle. Damaged exhaust systems are notorious for allowing exhaust fumes to back up into the cab of the car or truck. If you smell exhaust fumes in your vehicle’s cab, and especially if those fumes cause nausea or headaches, the fumes are potentially dangerous to you.
