These days your exhaust system is a lot more that just a muffler. It is made up of a series of pipes and componants under your car, including your muffler and catalytic converter. The main function of your exhaust system is for noise control and to route the toxic exhaust gases away from the driver and passengers.
Using the catalytic converter the exhaust system also burns and converts exhaust by products that are toxic for humans and the environment. Also heating and recylcling air before going in to your engine cylinders to be burned. Lastly your exhaust system is designed to create the correct amount of back pressure that your engine requires to improve its fuel-burning efficiency and increase performance. Key components of your exhaust system include:
Designed specifically for each car model to properly route exhaust to the back of the car.
Acts like a funnel, collecting exhaust gases from all cylinders and releasing it through a single opening. Some engines have two.
Designed to reduce the amount of harmful emissions products by transforming pollutants into water vapor and less harmful gases.
Metal container with holes, baffles, and chambers that muffles exhaust noise.
Works with the muffler to reduce noise.
Found at the back of the car, the tail pipe is designed to carry exhaust gases away from the vehicle
All components of the exhaust system are connected with a series of clamps, hangers, flanges, and gaskets.
