What are the Main Components of a Car Exhaust System?
Your car’s exhaust system is fairly simple in reality. It’s generally comprised of a series of pipes that are designed to vent gases away from the engine. It may also involve a manifold, cylinder head, turbocharger, catalytic converter, and a muffler that reduces engine noise. Damage to any one of these components can result in several issues, including an obnoxiously noisy car, exhaust fumes over and above your state’s regulatory limits, decreased engine power, and damage to your car’s engine due to overheating.
The manifold is the assembly that collects the exhaust gas from the engine’s cylinders or cylinder head and routes it to the venting pipes. Manifolds can be customized to increase performance, and generally are when optimization is required. Turbochargers are, simplistically speaking, devices that cool the engine by forcing air to it, thereby increasing efficiency and power, via power supplied by the exhaust. If a turbocharger is present, exhaust will have to be routed through it in order to power it properly. Catalytic converters make the fumes that are emitted less toxic to people and the environment by converting them to carbon dioxide and water. They are required by most state regulations. The piping that connects all of this is vital to the system; if the passageways develop holes or cracks and begin to leak, it will impact the whole of the system. The exhaust pipes must be secure and complete in order for everything to work properly. This piping generally ends just after a muffler – a noise deadening device that makes your car’s noise tolerable to the people around you. It’s vital if you live in a neighborhood where noise is regulated.
If your exhaust system exhibits a problem, or if your car fails the state required emissions inspections, you’ll need a licensed mechanic with solid experience dealing with exhaust systems to repair it. You may only need repair or replacement of a single part or assembly, or you may find that you need to replace your entire exhaust system. Choose a service center with a high standard for quality and customer care, and one that has built a reputation for integrity and good work. Alternatively, if you are looking to enhance the performance of your car, a service provider can give you all of the options for doing so without adding excess cost.
