The Basics Behind Exhaust Inspection Services at Teague Auto Centers

The exhaust system collects the harmful emissions released from your engine and directs them away from the vehicle. Exhaust system components work together to reduce the amount of pollutants expelled into the environment. The manifold collects the mixture of air and fuel from the engine and burns unused fuel. From the manifold, the emissions are sent through exhaust pipes into the catalytic converter, where the harmful elements are reduced and converted into less harmful gases in a honeycomb structure coated with platinum, rhodium, and palladium. These gases travel into the muffler, which dampens noise and dissipates the sound waves created during the combustion process in the engine. Finally, the gases are released into the environment through the tailpipe. Periodically checking these components for damage will help keep your exhaust system operating at maximum efficiency.



Why Should You Have Exhaust Inspection Services Performed at Teague Auto Centers?

Because the exhaust system is responsible for controlling your vehicle’s emissions, an inspection of the exhaust system is critical for your safety and the performance of your car. An exhaust system leak is dangerous due to the release of carbon monoxide into the cabin compartment, which can affect your judgment and perception. Exhaust noise is usually a sign of trouble, and should never be ignored. Blockages and plugged components can cause a loss of power and poor fuel economy. Leaks are often a result of internal corrosion, which is why close, routine inspection of your exhaust system is extremely important for overall car maintenance. Mounting components and gaskets will also be inspected and replaced as needed. During an exhaust service and inspection, all components, including the muffler, catalytic converter, manifold, downpipe, and exhaust pipes, are visually inspected for damage and tested for proper working order.
