If you live in a large city, you may be subject to emissions testing. If your vehicle fails the emissions test, you may need to get your exhaust system repaired or replaced. Our team at Jerry Lambert Automotive can diagnose and repair your exhaust system so that your car can pass the emissions test.
While your exhaust system helps reduce noise output from your vehicle, it also reduces harmful emissions being released in the air. When your muffler and exhaust system function properly, it largely reduces your vehicle’s harmful impact on the environment. It also significantly improves the functionality of your vehicle.
Your vehicle’s exhaust system involves several components. The exhaust manifolds right behind the engine collect exhaust gases and connect to cylinder heads. Gases collected by your car’s exhaust manifolds are analyzed by oxygen sensors and refined by catalytic converters before being muffled by the mufflers. By the time these gases reach the muffler, the emissions system has made your car run smoother, quieter and cleaner for the environment.
If any of the components of your vehicle’s exhaust system fail, your gas mileage and quality of air around you can be affected. The professional auto repair team at Jerry Lambert Automotive can inspect and repair your entire exhaust system to ensure your vehicle is running cleanly.
