Exhaust System Repair

Exhaust System Repair Description

Beneath your vehicle is where the exhaust system is located. It is the component which collects and removes potentially harmful emissions from the vehicle. It is also responsible for reducing the levels of pollution generated from the engine as it is released into the environment. It also cuts down on the amount of exhaust noise. Comprised of metal pipes and other components, it is key in the safe operation of the vehicle and the preservation of the environment.

The manifold is the exhaust component which takes the emissions directly from the engine and transfers it through the catalytic converter which then transforms harmful emissions like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, hydrocarbons into less harmful gases before releasing them into the environment. Those less harmful gases are carbon dioxide, water vapor, oxygen, and nitrogen. Another part of the exhaust system is the muffler which suppresses the noise generated by engines. It dissipates the noise before sending it through the tailpipe and into the environment.

Benefits of Exhaust System Repair

While it might be hard to believe, the exhaust system can greatly impact the vehicle’s performance. That is why it is vital to perform regular maintenance on the exhaust system. Unusual noises occurring during acceleration can be an indicator that there are cracks or holes in the exhaust system. The exhaust system is attached to the underside of the vehicle by a system of hangers. If rattling noises are occurring during operation, it can be an indicator that one or more of the hangers have become compromised. If you detect the smell of exhaust while driving or feel drowsy while driving it could indicate that noxious fumes from the exhaust system are leaking into the cabin. This can be dangerous incredibly dangerous. It is important to have the exhaust system checked for cracks and corrosion. Having routine maintenance performed on the exhaust system is vital to safe, efficient engine operation. Some of the components can include the manifold, exhaust pipe, catalytic converter, muffler, and exhaust hangers.
