The exhaust system is an important component of your vehicle. Firstly, the exhaust helps to direct noxious gases away from the cabin, so you will not be exposed to gases that can harm your immediate and long term health.
Another important function of the exhaust is to make sure your car is being as fuel efficient as possible, by monitoring the levels of oxygen emitted and using this information to balance the fuel/air mix of the engine to the optimum level.
Why should you replace your exhaust?
If your exhaust system is damaged, it should be replaced because toxins burned off within it may cause the following:
- Rust to build up on the exhaust system over time
- Increased fuel consumption and running costs
- If you exhaust is damaged it can allow toxic gases into the cockpit of your car and can cause drowsiness and headaches
