The job of your car exhaust system is to manage the dangerous gas emissions created by your engine's combustion process. It helps improve overall vehicle performance and fuel mileage, minimize noise and reduce the amount of pollutants released into the environment.
Knowing the importance of car exhaust system repair starts with understanding this system. So, let's take a look at its parts. Here's how it works:
Exhaust Manifold – All engine emissions are first collected here. The exhaust manifold then acts as a funnel, releasing the gases through the front pipe and into the catalytic converter.
Catalytic Converter – As its name suggests, the CAT transforms (converts) harmful gases like carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2) into relatively harmless ones, including oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and water vapor.
Muffler – Another important component of the exhaust system is the muffler, which dissipates engine sound waves. As the muffler cancels out noise, converted gases are released through the tailpipe.
O2 Sensor – The oxygen sensor communicates oxygen levels in the exhaust stream to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM will then adjust the air to fuel ratio to maximize your fuel economy.
