Your Fuel Economy Drops
One of the most obvious indications that your vehicle isn’t running at its maximum capacity is fuel efficiency. A sudden change in fuel efficiency may be an indication of a leak, damaged parts, or even misfiring spark plugs. These issues should be addressed right away to keep your vehicle safe and to save you money on fuel and future repairs.
You Hear or Smell Something Unusual
You always want to pay close attention to changes in the smells or sounds from your vehicle, especially if they’re happening at specific times. For instance, if you smell sulfur when you go to start your car, it may be a sign that the battery is corroding, and squealing or grinding during braking typically indicates worn brake pads that need to be replaced.
Your Exhaust is Dark or Rich
It’s not unusual to see light grey exhaust on occasion, but you do want to take note if your vehicle’s exhaust is suddenly very dark or rich. This typically indicates that the fuel isn’t combusting properly, likely due to an imbalance of oxygen and fuel and that excess fuel is being burned and released. You’ll want to get your air filter and fuel injector inspected if this occurs.
