Have you ever wondered why one car is louder than others? Do you know how cars reduce emissions? This is where exhaust systems enter the picture.
The exhaust system of a vehicle works through different components that gather the engine cylinders’ exhaust fumes and get rid of dangerous substances. It also reduces noise and releases exhaust gases away from the car.
Every exhaust system produces a total of six gases in the form of emissions. Three of these gases are toxic, which include nitrogen monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and carbon monoxide. Although the main job of the exhaust system is to disperse the dangerous gases that the combustion chamber of the engine has produced, it also performs the task of muffling the sound.
A car with a poor exhaust system can exhibit different problems including dangerous gases, rumbling sounds coming from the muffler or exhaust pipe, and lower fuel efficiency. Car owners may also notice the emission of a rotten egg odor of the exhaust system is faulty.
