Our expert insights into Volvo exhaust silencer replacement

Our expert insights into Volvo exhaust silencer replacement

What does an exhaust silencer do?

A car’s exhaust system is made up of several parts that channel gases from the engine’s cylinders back into the atmosphere. The exhaust silencer is the final section, and its job is to reduce the amount of noise created by the engine gases.

Symptoms of a malfunctioning exhaust silencer

If your exhaust makes more noise or is louder than normal, your exhaust silencer is probably damaged or improperly attached. A common sound of ‘blowing out’ is where holes have developed in the silencer.

What does an exhaust silencer do?

A car’s exhaust system is made up of several parts that channel gases from the engine’s cylinders back into the atmosphere. The exhaust silencer is the final section, and its job is to reduce the amount of noise created by the engine gases being forced through the exhaust pipe.

How often should an exhaust silencer need replacing?

Your exhaust silencer’s lifespan is dependent on a range of outside factors—the main ones being the weather and driving conditions. Modern exhausts made from chrome or stainless steel are designed to last for the life of the car, whereas a high-quality non-stainless steel exhaust should last for around 5 years.

The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT

A hole in your exhaust will only fail an MOT if it is responsible for a major leak or it causes the car to fail its emissions test.

What happens when we replace your exhaust silencer?

  • Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will inspect your exhaust.
  • If the exhaust silencer is damaged, cracked or rusted, it will be replaced, and you’ll be advised of any other connected or associated problems arising from its malfunction.
  • You will also be advised of any other parts that may need to be replaced, for example, the exhaust gaskets, for the best operation and health of your vehicle.
  • Once the exhaust silencer has been replaced, our mechanics will test it thoroughly to ensure its correct operation and make any adjustments required for its best performance.

What causes an exhaust silencer to stop working correctly?

Because of their location, being mounted underneath the car, **exhaust pipes **are highly prone to damage, corrosion and wear. The weather plays a significant part in the corrosion and deterioration of the different exhaust pipe sections; rust being a major player in the appearance of holes throughout the system.

Damage to exhausts can be caused by raised road elements or extrusions from the road, such as curbs or speed bumps. Damage can also occur by driving too fast over the brow of a hill or through a dip where the suspension might bottom out and cause contact between the underside of the vehicle and the road surface.

Symptoms of a malfunctioning exhaust silencer

A noisy exhaust

If your exhaust makes more noise or is louder than normal, your exhaust silencer is probably damaged or improperly attached. A common sound of ‘blowing out’ is where holes have developed in the silencer.

There are holes in the exhaust

If you can see holes developing in your exhaust, through damage or deterioration, it’s time to get a new exhaust silencer.

Excessive vibration and lack of performance

A damaged exhaust pipe can affect your vehicle’s performance, and in some circumstances develop a vibration that wouldn’t occur under normal operation.

Failure of an emissions test

The exhaust is responsible for vehicle emissions, so if you fail a test, on inspection or at MOT, then you need to replace the malfunctioning component immediately.

Volvo

Volvo Cars is a Swedish luxury vehicle manufacturer, established in April 1927, over 90 years ago.

How popular is Volvo in the United Kingdom?

With around 645k cars on the roads in the UK today, Volvo is a considerable contributor to the UK motor industry.

With a steady rise in status from the boxy estate models popular in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, Volvo now produces a strong, executive range of luxury, performance vehicles.

Luxurious executive saloons, estate cars and SUVs

Sticking to the market they understand best, Volvo produces a small range of estate cars and a selection of bang-on-trend SUVs, complimented by 2 luxury saloon models. In other words, Volvo makes cars for ‘grown-up’ drivers where it knows its customers inside out.

Volvo: Exceptional aims for in-car safety

One of Volvo’s key visions is to provide a level of unrivalled safety inside their vehicles and has proven to be a dedicated leader in the field. Their current vision is that nobody should be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo car by 2020.

Pursuing perfection through Volvo technology

The ethos behind Volvo reaches further than just selling units and making a profit. By putting their customers first, they have committed to creating vehicles where ownership gives quality time back to their drivers, are environmentally efficient and exceptionally safe.

Using modern technology and striving to develop the systems to lead the field, is something they take very seriously. After all, this is the company that brought drivers:

  • The 3-point safety seatbelt
  • The Lambda Sond emissions detector responsible for reducing harmful fumes by 90%
  • Side impact, whiplash, and roll-over protection
  • Blind spot systems
  • City safety scanning
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Auto-braking

Volvo’s reliability and reputation

Volvo ranked joint 20th out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018 with an efficiency rating of 91.5%.
