How does an exhaust system work?
A vehicle’s exhaust emission system starts just behind the engine. Exhaust manifolds join with the cylinder heads to gather exhaust gases. Some of the harmful gases that the exhaust system gathers include:
- Carbon Dioxide
- Sulfur Dioxide
- Nitrogen Oxides
- Carbon Monoxide
These gases move through the exhaust system and are initially examined by oxygen sensors, then refined by the catalytic converter and then dampened by the muffler. At the end of the system, when the gases leave the automobile, the exhaust system has made the vehicle run more efficiently and quietly. Visit M&M Automotive in Columbia, TN today!
