Truck Exhaust Systems Repair Services in Watertown, SD

Schedule Repair

The diesel exhaust system is a crucial component in the functioning of your truck's engine. It channels exhaust gases away from the engine and filters out harmful pollutants before releasing them into the environment. To keep your diesel engine running smoothly and in compliance with emissions regulations, regular maintenance and repairs of the exhaust system are a must.

Diagnosing and Resolving Issues

Our team of experienced technicians uses cutting-edge technology to diagnose and repair issues with your diesel truck's complex exhaust system. This includes inspecting all parts, such as the muffler, pipes, and filters, and replacing clogged filters or repairing broken hangers and leaks.

Aftertreatment Systems and Compliance

In recent years, aftertreatment systems have been developed to reduce harmful emissions and improve air quality, in response to stricter emissions regulations. Our technicians have the expertise to service and repair aftertreatment systems, including the diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. Regular inspections, cleaning and replacements of worn or damaged parts will keep your aftertreatment system functioning efficiently and in compliance with emissions regulations.

Signs Your Diesel Exhaust System Needs Maintenance 

To ensure the optimal performance of your diesel truck's engine, it's important to keep a close eye on the exhaust system. Here are some signs that indicate your diesel exhaust system is in need of maintenance or repair:

Decreased Engine Performance

If you notice a decrease in your diesel truck's engine power, it could be caused by increased back pressure from your exhaust system being clogged or restricted. 

Increased Fuel Consumption

If your exhaust system has leaks or clogs it can cause the engine to work harder and use more fuel to produce the same power.

Black Smoke from the Tailpipe

If you notice black smoke coming from your diesel truck's tailpipe, it could indicate that the DPF needs to be cleaned or that there is a problem with the SCR system.

Unusual Engine Sounds

Sounds such as rattling or whistling could indicate a problem with the muffler, pipes, or hangers in the exhaust system.

Excessive Rust or Corrosion

If you see excessive rust or corrosion on any parts of your diesel truck's exhaust system it’s time to replace those components. This is especially important for parts that are subject to high temperatures and harsh conditions.
