The Importance of a Healthy Exhaust!
Your vehicle’s exhaust system has come a long way from the old days of exhaust pipes and mufflers. Today, your exhaust structure is made up of many parts that all have a role to play in your vehicles safety and continued high performance. This part of your car is crucial and should be inspected regularly by your RK Auto Repair in Nashua NH.
The exhaust system channels threatening gases from the engine out and away from the car to keep from harming the passengers. The catalytic converter helps turn these gases into mostly harmless ones that do much less damage to you and the environment. If the catalytic converter starts to deteriorate it will not burn those gase as efficiently. The oxygen sensors mounted in the exhaust system monitor the level of oxygen in exhaust gases to control efficient engine operation and to monitor the converter’s operations.
Not only does an exhaust protect driver and passengers from toxins, the exhaust system reduces loud noises from the engine which is a New Hampshire state law!
