Exhaust leak??

Post by adrowil » Mon Jun 25, 2018 11:56 am

Hello, I’ve recently had a sports cat fitted that seems to be leaking. I’ve got the car booked back in but I’m wondering if it’ll be ok to drive?

How do you know it's leaking? Are the fumes coming into the cabin?

Mainly the sound, you can hear the turbo spool really loud & you can hear it blowing when the bonnet is open. I’ve had this exact issue before on my previous 135 but I’m just wondering if this will cause me any issues?

I guess it depends on how big the leak is, and whether you smell fumes in the cabin.

Another issue is hot exhaust gas jetting onto something sensitive.

Drive with window open and keep brain in ‘cruise’ mode.

How long are we talking to get it fixed?
