Understanding Your Exhaust System
Your exhaust system plays a crucial role in reducing the harmful emissions that are produced during the combustion process. It is responsible for dissipating gases (such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons) that the engine generates and directing them away from the cabin and into the atmosphere. In doing so, the exhaust system helps protect the environment and you and your passengers and improve overall air quality. Additionally, the exhaust system reduces noises via the muffler and maintains optimal fuel efficiency. The exhaust system comprises various parts, including the exhaust manifold, oxygen sensors, catalytic converter, exhaust pipe, resonator, muffler, and tailpipe. Exhaust system problems can occur for various reasons, such as rough driving conditions and general wear and tear.
