Your exhaust system is more than a muffler. It is a series of pipes that run under your car, connected to your muffler and catalytic
converter. The main function of your exhaust system is to control noise and to funnel exhaust fumes away from passengers.
In some ways,
a car's exhaust system works like a chimney on your house, directing the byproducts from burning fuel away from the people inside.
A car's exhaust system routes waste gases from the engine to the rear of the car, where they are discharged into the atmosphere. Exhaust
gases contain dangerous substances such as carbon monoxide, which can be hazardous if allowed to flow into the passenger housing of
The exhaust system also converts pollutants into less harmful byproducts, reduces the noise of the engine, and directs exhaust
gases so they can be used to heat air and fuel before they go into the engine's cylinders to be burned. Finally, the exhaust system
provides just the right amount of backpressure into the engine to improve its fuel-burning efficiency and increase performance.
best way to keep your vehicle environmentally friendly is by performing regularly scheduled maintenance, rather than waiting to correct
a problem after your car fails an emissions test. If the SERVICE ENGINE SOON or CHECK ENGINE light appears, have it checked out immediately
by a professional technician. Neglecting these warning signs can cause lead to more extensive and expensive repairs.
