Exhaust System Service & Repair

Weíve all heard a car or truck in our neighborhoods that needs a new muffler. But thereís more to the exhaust system than just the muffler.

 

 The exhaust system has three main functions:

  • To safely get hot exhaust gas from the engine out the tailpipe

  • Treats the exhaust to remove harmful pollutants

  • Muffle the engine noise

Exhaust gas is poisonous. You donít want it getting into the passenger compartment. For example, carbon monoxide can be deadly. Thatís why you should never run your engine in a closed garage. If you have a leak in the exhaust system, exhaust could get into the passenger cabin and make you sick or even kill you.

 

If you smell exhaust in the vehicle, roll down your windows and get it inspected. You may smell or see exhaust coming from the engine compartment or under the vehicle if you have a leak. Sometimes the sound from an exhaust leak is loud and obvious. Sometimes itís a ticking sound when you start the engine that goes away as you drive. That could be a small crack or a bad fitting that leaks when itís cold but seals up when the metal heats and expands.

 

Now, letís address the environmental issues for our own communities. Exhaust gas contains a number of pollutants and particulates. The catalytic converter scrubs some of those harmful substances. And diesel vehicles have systems to deal with soot.

 

Catalytic converters eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Theyíre expensive so you want to help them last as long as possible by keeping the fuel system clean and replacing your air filter. These components need to be tested for function with an emissions test from time to time.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths. It's a dangerous and potentially lethal toxin. Excessive exposure to auto exhaust can cause brain damage and even death. If you see, smell or hear exhaust anywhere but the tailpipe, get an auto inspection right away.

And that leaves the muffler. The beauty of getting a new muffler is that you can suit your taste: Some want whisper quiet and others like a little rumble and some like a roar when they cruise down our area highways.

Your exhaust system is more than a muffler.  In some ways it works like a chimney in your house, directing the byproducts of burning fuel away from the people inside.  The exhaust system also controls noise and funnels the dangerous carbon monoxide away from the passenger.  Your exhaust system also incorporates a catalytic converter which Is used to control harmful emissions generated by the burning of fuel.  The exhaust system also provides a certain amount of back pressure that is required by the engine to improve its fuel burning efficiency and increase low RPM performance. Key components of your exhaust system include:

 

Exhaust Pipes:

Designed specifically for each model, this pipe is used to properly route exhaust to the back of the vehicle.

 

Exhaust Manifold:

Acting like a funnel, the exhaust manifold collects the gases from all cylinders and releases them through a single opening. Some engines have two exhaust manifolds.

 

Catalytic Converter:

The catalytic converter reduces harmful emissions and transforms pollutants into water vapor and other less harmful gases.

 

WALKERģ EXHAUST SYSTEMS: What is a Catalytic Converter
The catalytic converter is designed to convert harmful emissions, produced by an internal combustion engine, to less-harmful elements: H2O (Water), CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and N2 (Nitrogen). catalytic converter repair service replacement

To perform this conversion, the catalytic converter works with a vehicle's PCM (Powertrain Control Module) and other emissions control devices.

OBDII (On-Board Diagnostics Version 2) monitors the emissions control devices and provides feedback on their operating condition.

As the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) updates emissions standards, the OBDII system becomes more sensitive to fluctuations in emissions performance.

 

Muffler:

The muffler is a metal container with holes, baffles, and chambers that reduces exhaust noise.

 

Resonator:

The resonator works with the muffler to reduce noise.

 

Tail Pipe:

Found at the back of the car, the tail pipe carries exhaust gases away from the vehicle.
