Your vehicle’s exhaust system is an important and often overlooked system that removes toxic exhaust fumes and gases away from the engine. When your Exhaust system is working in its best condition, your engine will run smooth, there is a reduced risk of your engine breaking down, the engine’s noise is reduced, and harmful emissions are decontaminated (harmful emissions including nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and carbon monoxides) which results in less pollution.
The major parts of your vehicle’s exhaust system include the cylinder head, exhaust pipe, oxygen sensor (which measures the amount of oxygen in the exhaust), turbo charger, catalytic converter (reduces harmful gas emissions), and a silencer or muffler. It is important to be aware of various signals that your Exhaust system is not working properly. Some of these signs include a decrease in gas mileage, experiencing power loss on your vehicle, a sulfur smell from your car engine or a hot car floor. If you are experiencing any of these problems, you may need an Exhaust Repair and should take your vehicle to a Certified Technician at Bobby & Steve’s Auto World to diagnose and repair the issue.
