Exhaust Silencers

Get to Know Your Exhaust System Better

Most people don’t realise that an exhaust system entails more than the visible parts, i.e. the silencer and exhaust pipe. In fact, the exhaust system spans the length of your car, and consists of a series of chambers and pipes that begin at the engine and end at the exhaust pipe. There are five parts in a normal, modern exhaust system:

  1. Exhaust manifold: joined to the engine at the cylinder head, the exhaust manifold collects exhaust gasses during the combustion process and funnels them through to the exhaust pipe.
  2. Oxygen sensor: reacting to the oxygen levels in the exhaust, the oxygen sensor informs your car’s computer if it should send more or less fuel to the combustion chambers.
  3. Exhaust pipes: a series of pipes connecting the entire exhaust system, from the engine to the exhaust pipe at the rear.
  4. Catalytic converter: this device transforms harmful emissions, like carbon monoxide, into carbon dioxide and water vapour.
  5. Silencer: a contraption for decreasing the noise made by the internal combustion engine.

How to Tell If You Need a New Exhaust System

There are a few tell-tale signs that mean you need to buy a new exhaust system. If you suddenly smell fumes in the passenger compartment, then your exhaust system could be faulty. If this happens, make sure to wind down all the windows until you can stop. Hissing and popping noises are also a sign that your exhaust system is malfunctioning, as is a noticeable decrease in fuel efficiency.

Maintaining Your Exhaust System

Exhaust systems are susceptible to rust and corrosion—give yours a helping hand by hosing down the underside of your car in wet, cold weather. It’s easy for small holes and rusty areas to go unnoticed, so it is recommended that you have your exhaust system checked by a professional every now and then too—that way, you can prevent minor issues from turning into bigger, more costly problems.
