Mufflers & ExhaustYou may think your car’s exhaust system is designed only to reduce noise, but it is also responsible for reducing harmful emissions from entering the atmosphere.- Properly functioning mufflers and exhaust systems not only sound better, they are better – for you, your car, and the environment.
Your exhaust system really starts at the front of your car, right behind your engine. Exhaust manifolds connect to the cylinder heads, where they collect exhaust gases. As the gases move through the exhaust system, they’re first analyzed by oxygen sensors, then refined by the catalytic converter and, finally, muffled by the muffler.
So by the time those gases leave the vehicle, your emission system has made your car run smoother, cleaner, and quieter.Any one of these components can fail and affect everything from your gas mileage to the air you breathe. It’s a pretty complex system. Northboro Car Care can diagnose the problem and get you back on the road again.
