Exhaust Repair Bradford
The exhaust system is a critical part of your car and one of the most exposed.
The condition of an exhaust can have a serious effect on the overall performance of your vehicle and it is important to make sure it is healthy.
The exhaust system has two main functions, to reduce noise emissions and divert combustion exhaust gases. It needs to be regularly maintained to ensure it is working correctly, helping to lower fuel consumption and reducing the risk of harmful fumes being released into the environment.
There are many reasons why an exhaust can become damaged – high temperatures, extreme temperature differences, humidity, road salt and dirt. If there are holes in the grill, the parts become detached, or an exhaust bracket is loose then you should visit a garage immediately.
The exhaust system consists of the following parts:
Exhaust Manifold – this vents the exhaust gases out of the cylinders into one pipe. It burns off any leftover fuel that has not burned properly in the engine.
Oxygen Sensor – manages exhaust emissions by measuring oxygen levels and sending readings to the car’s computer, this will then regulate how much fuel is needed in the engine for maximum efficiency.
Exhaust Pipe – connects to the manifold and carries exhaust through the system where it makes its final exit out of the tailpipe.
Catalytic Converter – serves to convert the harmful pollutants into carbon dioxide and water vapor, making the exhaust safer for the environment.
Muffler – acts as a sound barrier to the loud noises of combustion that occur throughout the exhaust system
If you notice any problems with your exhaust, then it is important that you get it seen to straight away and book in for an exhaust repair Bradford. Leaving it unchecked increases the chances of harmful fumes entering the vehicle. A faulty exhaust can usually be recognised by a loud noise but there is often a higher fuel consumption and lower output. Your exhaust system should be regularly serviced in a professional workshop to prevent severe damage and unnecessarily high repair costs.
Other problems can be identified by visually checking underneath the vehicle.
Looking underneath your vehicle starting at the engine eight down to the tailpipe and look for any signs of rust. If the exhaust has rusted through or is rusted from the inside it may need to be replaced.
A damaged exhaust system will not only become noisy, but it may also mean that your car’s noise levels and emissions are too high. This may result in an MOT failure.
