Exhaust Service

Your exhaust system is more than a muffler. It is a series of pipes that run under your car and connecting to your muffler and catalytic converter. The exhaust system controls noise and funnels exhaust fumes away from passengers.

The exhaust system should be inspected on a regular basis. If you suspect that your exhaust pipe or muffler are damaged, contact us today. Our ASE-certified technicians will inspect your exhaust system. If needed, our staff can provide an exhaust repair.

How The Exhaust System  Works

In some ways, your car’s exhaust system works like a chimney on a house, directing the byproducts from burning fuel away from the people inside. A car’s exhaust system routes waste gases from the engine to the rear of the car, where they are released into the atmosphere. Exhaust gases contain dangerous substances (such as carbon monoxide) and can be hazardous if allowed to flow into your vehicle’s cab.

The exhaust system also converts pollutants into less harmful byproducts, reduces engine noise, and directs exhaust gases to heat air and fuel before the fuel goes into the engine’s cylinders. Finally, the exhaust system provides the correct amount of back pressure into the engine to improve its fuel-burning efficiency and increase performance.

Key Components of Your Exhaust System

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.

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.
