An exhaust system has three main functions:
- it transfers poisonous exhaust gases from the engine to the rear of your vehicle
- it quiets down the engine sound while running
- it converts unspent fuel into spent fuel with the help of a catalytic converter.
The exhaust system consists of an exhaust manifold, exhaust pipe, catalytic converter, muffler and a tail pipe. The function of the primary system is to transfer the exhaust from the exhaust manifold through the head pipe and flex pipe to the catalytic converter. The catalytic converter has a heat shield to protect the floorboard from the extreme heat it creates. The system is held in place by rubber exhaust hangers to help dampen engine vibration and to allow the system to flex without breaking. Most exhaust systems are made of aluminized metal or stainless steel to prevent corrosion. Engines produce water along with the exhaust gases as a natural byproduct of the combustion process. This is why a small amount of water and steam is observed coming from the exhaust pipe when the car is cold. As the engine heats up, the water is vaporized quickly so you can’t see the moisture.
