Exhaust Systems Services at Lanier Truck Repair

Your exhaust is responsible for significantly more than just noise suppression. The series of tubes that travel underneath your heavy-duty vehicle is designed to funnel pollutants away from your passenger compartment. This protects you and your passengers from harmful carcinogens. Another major responsibility of your exhaust system is after treatment. Using a series of emissions control components, you significantly reduce the number of nitrogen oxides and other harmful pollutants that are released into our atmosphere. Your after-treatment system includes your DPF, your EGR system, your SCR Catalyst, and your DOC.

Common Exhaust Issues

Exhaust Leak

Heavy-duty exhaust systems are very close to the ground and, as such, can come into contact with road debris quite easily. Combine this with basic rust and corrosion, and it shouldn’t be surprising that exhaust leaks do happen. Common symptoms of an exhaust leak include rattling sounds and extremely loud engine noise. Fortunately, we here at Lanier Truck Repair are fabrication experts. We’ll weld your exhaust back together, repair your after-treatment components, and get you back out on the road. 

DPF Cleaning

Your diesel particulate filter (DPF) is responsible for capturing soot and other diesel particulate matter. Since your DPF’s storage capacity is finite, it needs to be cleaned out every 150 to 200 thousand miles. Some DPF models have self-cleaning modes, but most need to be cleaned out manually. At Lanier Truck Repair, we have the tools and equipment required to clean out even the oldest of DPFs.
