Your exhaust system is more than just your muffler. It’s a collection of pipes that run under your car, attached to the muffler and catalytic converter. The principal role of your exhaust system is to control sound and to funnel exhaust fumes away from passengers.
In certain ways, an automobile’s exhaust system works like a chimney on your house: directing the byproducts from burning off gas away from the people inside. An automobile’s exhaust system routes waste gases from the engine to the trunk of the vehicle, where they’re discharged into the air. Exhaust gases contain harmful substances like carbon monoxide, which is toxic if permitted to flow in the cabin of the vehicle.
The exhaust system also converts pollutants into less harmful chemicals, lessens the sound of the motor, and sends exhaust gases so that they can be used to warm air and gas before they move in the engine cylinders to be burnt. Lastly, the exhaust system provides just the ideal quantity of backpressure to the engine to enhance its fuel-burning efficacy and boost functionality.
Your car’s exhaust is an extremely important system which needs to be treated with care and routine maintenance. Our experienced technicians at Walt’s Auto can repair and replace these core components:
