Lake Country Auto Care - Waukesha - Exhaust Repair Services

Our Waukesha mechanics know there are a variety of things which can go wrong in a vehicle’s exhaust system. Damaged mufflers, corroded exhaust pipes, holes and other system faults all contribute to exhaust problems. Unfortunately, these aspects are often missed. Instead motorists notice the consequences of the damage, before they realize the source of the problem. The most common indicators people notice when their exhaust system is failing are:

  • Decreased Fuel Efficiency
  • Rough Idling
  • Excessively Loud Exhaust
  • Popping, Rattling or Hissing Noises

If your vehicle is experiencing any of the above issues it is important to schedule an exhaust repair appointment right away with our ASE-certified Waukesha mechanics. We’ll perform detailed diagnostics to ensure we find any and all areas of concern. After exhaust diagnostics are completed we’ll immediately let you know what we’ve found. Our mechanics will give you options and free estimates, so you can select the best option for your vehicle and your budget.

If your exhaust system failed a Waukesha emissions test, schedule an emissions repair appointment with Lake Country Auto Care. As a certified emissions repair center of Waukesha County and the state of Wisconsin, you’re partnering with Waukesha mechanics who are uniquely trained in complex emission repairs. Plus, when you have emissions repair work performed at Lake Country Auto Care you may be eligible to receive cost waivers!

Five Exhaust Colors Indicating What’s Wrong with Your Car

Smoke Coming from Your Car? What does it mean to you?

The exhaust of your car can reveal a lot about its health. Different colors coming out of the muffler can signify different problems. Depending on the color of your vehicle’s smoke you can decipher if it’s safe to drive or if you need to pull into a mechanic’s shop quick! Here are the different exhaust colors to be aware of and what they mean:

Thin White Smoke - Nothing’s wrong with your vehicle, carry on with your day. If the smoke comes out white but dissipates shortly after leaving your car, the smoke is just steam leaving the muffler.

Gray Smoke - Can mean automatic transmission fluid is getting burned up by the engine. Transmission repair should be done sooner rather than later.

Black Smoke - The vehicle’s engine is burning too much fuel. You’ll definitely be saving money on gas in the long run by getting this fixed.

Blue Smoke - Oil is being burned up by the engine. If this problem continues unchecked, it will result in damage to the spark plugs.

Thick White Smoke - If your vehicle is consistently spewing a thick cloud of white smoke, it’s time to redirect the vehicle to an auto repair shop. The white smoke is being caused by internal coolant leaks. This leaking is caused by at least one of the following three issues:

  • Cracked engine block
  • Blown head gasket
  • Cracked cylinder head

If your car is expelling this kind of exhaust or any color other than thin white smoke, then you will want to come visit Lake Country Auto Care. Not having your exhaust repaired will lead to larger problems and more expensive solutions! But our seasoned mechanics will take care of these problems in short order giving you fair prices.
