What is the function of the Exhaust System?

Whenever fuel and air get burnt in the combustion chamber, gases are produced. The exhaust system is responsible for taking away these gases, protecting you and the environment. The components of the exhaust system are the exhaust manifold, oxygen sensor, the catalytic converter, the muffler and the exhaust pipe. These parts all work together for different functions including sensing oxygen, converting harmful gases into water vapor and carbon dioxide, and carrying those gases throughout the pipe that releases gases from the car.


When You Should Replace Your Car's Exhaust

Some Reasons Your Exhaust Needs to be Replaced:

  • Rust
    Rust happens whenever moisture mixes with the iron in the steel. This moisture can form as a result of combustion or even from weather conditions like rain. Another reason rust can form is frequently driving a car for a short time, not giving it enough time to convert water vapor formed in the pipes back into a liquid.
  • Issues with the Oxygen Sensor
    Over time oxygen sensors lose their functioning abilities. This can cause more gas being used than usual. Usually the engine sensor will flash, indicating that this needs to get checked out.
  • Muffler and Catalytic Converter Issues
    The muffler could also get rusty, meaning it may need to get replaced. A catalytic converter may lose its functioning abilities which could cause a strange smell, or heat from the bottom of the car.
