Car Van Exhausts Replacments
|| The exhaust system is one of the
most hard working components on your vehicle. It is constantly
in use whilst the engine is running. An exhaust system on
most vehicles usually comprises of four sections.
Rear silencer box
Also on all vehicles registered after 1993 a catalytic
converter is fitted. The most common section to become
defective is the rear silencer as moisture gathers inside
the box and attacks the metal. Corrosion from the inside
results in hole, which causes the exhaust to blow. A defective
exhaust will mean the vehicle fails the MOT test. It also
causes excessive noise; thereby rendering the vehicle
illegal which could lead to a fixed penalty fine. An unchecked
exhaust may also result in fumes entering the car, which
can lead to headaches, sickness and drowsiness.
Catalytic converters are now fitted to all cars to remove
harmful pollution from the exhaust gases. This expensive
and high-tech component fits in the exhaust system and
looks on the outside like a typical silencer box.
The catalytic converter is an integral part of the engine
performance system and sensors control the gases entering
and leaving the catalytic converter are controlled by
the engine management system.
The catalytic converter effectiveness is measured by
testing the exhaust gas emissions. This is an important
part of the MOT and service requirements on all cars today.
