How do exhausts work?
A vehicles exhaust system has four main functions:
- to control noise
- to direct dangerous exhaust fumes away from passengers inside the vehicle
- to improve the performance of the engine –and to improve fuel consumption – you may begin to notice that you need to fill up more often where an exhaust fault is present
After combusting its mixture of fuel and air, the engine will create power, heat and exhaust. When exhaust gases which are released from the engine they contain several elements that are dangerous to us and can cause damage to the environment.
It is therefore extremely important to ensure that your exhaust isn’t faulty and needs replacing. This will improve your cars performance, keep you and your passengers free of inhaling and toxic gases and is good for the environment.
Signs that your exhaust needs repairing
When you have an exhaust leak you might begin to notice that your vehicle is losing power. You might feel vibrations when you touch your steering wheel or vibration in the foot pedal. These issues can also be a sign of a hole in your exhaust or that the exhaust system has become disconnected.
You might also begin to hear strange noises coming from your exhaust. These might be due to a that a crack in the exhaust pipe or this could even be an issue with the exhaust manifold or that there is possibly a leaking gasket. Noises are a sign of exhaust problem.
An exhaust system will help draw the dangerous gases from an engine, passing them through a series of units, and removes the gases from the vehicle.
