MELROSE Exhaust and Emissions Service

Posted March 17, 2019 10:53 AM

Many MELROSE residents don't realize that there is more to exhaust system maintenance than just tailpipes and mufflers, if you can see smoke or if it's too loud. Exhaust service at a full-service automotive center like Certified Automotive Solutions is really a lot more comprehensive these days.

For example, in the U.S., the federal government required catalytic converters for all cars in 1976 and on-board emission control computers in 1990. MA and federal emissions requirements have forced manufacturers to come up with much more sophisticated ways to comply with environmental laws. This also goes for cars sold in Canada.

So, exhaust service has really become exhaust and emissions service. High-tech computer-controlled emissions devices are now necessary. And because it's so sophisticated, we recommend having your emission system checked out by a qualified technician, like the ones we have at Certified Automotive Solutions, regularly to make sure everything's working right – which is usually every six months or 6,000 miles/10,000 kilometers.

If your 'check engine light' comes on while you are driving around the MELROSE area, especially if it's flashing, then you need to bring your car into Certified Automotive Solutions ASAP. Chances are it's an emission related problem. Signs of exhaust or emissions trouble include difficulty starting, engine noise or smoke.

We hope this hasn't been too 'exhausting' of a discussion. Remember that a properly functioning exhaust system is for MA’s health and safety. Talk with your friendly and knowledgeable service advisor at Certified Automotive Solutions in MELROSE if you think you might need your exhaust system checked. A quick look can sure save a lot of pain down the road.
