All About Exhaust Systems
When a car owner services his/her automobile, they often forget about the exhaust system.
They don’t quite realise that they play such a vital role, not being just a noise queller or a muffler as what other people thought.
Does an exhaust system only help minimize the noise a car makes?
If you think it’s just as simple as that, well you’re thinking wrong.
It also helps your engine become more powerful as the exhaust systems actually takes away or filters unneeded or excess gases made by the oxidization inside your car’s engine which contributes to lessen air pollution.
Inside your exhaust system, gases move through to the back of your car and at the same time, gases are being evaluated by oxygen sensors. Then the catalytic converter restrains the gases which are finally suppressed by the muffler.
This way, exhaust systems makes your car cleaner, smoother and quieter, making the driver’s ride more comfortable anywhere they go.
What are the signs that the exhaust system already needs a replacement?
Your car has a check engine light that will be activated whenever a problem occurs within your exhaust system. So, whenever you notice that this light is on, go and check on it as it might need a replacement soon.
There is an exhaust leakage – it can be caused from worn exhaust gasket or manifolds that contain small holes and cracks on it.
It produces excessive loud noise within the catalytic converters – It is a result of clogging or deterioration that leads to overheating.
Clamps, bracket hangers and pipes are hanging too low – almost reaching the ground – you need to check on your bolts and fittings to see if it has damage and already rotten and rusted.

If you notice any of these signs or symptoms within your car exhaust system you definitely need to find a replacement as it will totally affect your car’s performance.
