Common Exhaust Issues
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.
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.
