When you think of an exhaust system, the first thing that may come to mind is the muffler! This is because it is usually the only part of the exhaust system that most drivers can see. The exhaust system is actually a complex series of pipes running under a car that connects the muffler and catalytic converter.

What does a full exhaust system include?

  • Exhaust Pipes: Routes the exhaust fumes to the back of the vehicle.
  • Exhaust Manifold: Collects the gases from the cylinders and releases them through a single opening, monitored by one or more oxygen sensors.
  • Catalytic Converter: Transforms toxins to carbon dioxide and water for cleaner emissions. Oxygen sensors monitor its performance.
  • Muffler: A metal pipe with holes, baffles, and chambers that helps reduce the noise of combustion and expulsion of exhaust.
  • Resonator: Works with the muffler to reduce noise.
  • Tail Pipe: Located at the back of the car, the exhaust exits your vehicle into the atmosphere.

How do you know if there are problems with the exhaust system? A noisy muffler! This is a strong indication that other components of the exhaust system need attention and that your vehicle may not be safe to drive. Remember that if the muffler is damaged, you will likely find an exhaust leak, which means that your vehicle’s engine performance is diminished, your fuel economy is diminished, more emissions, and most important, toxic gases can enter the interior of your car, hazardous for your passengers.

Remember: The components that make up the exhaust system should be inspected on a regular basis to make sure the exhaust system is doing its job of controlling engine noise, routing the exhaust fumes out of the car and into the atmosphere, improving fuel efficiency, and maintaining the performance of your vehicle.
