Car & Van Exhaust Replacements
The exhaust system is one of the most hard working components on your vehicle. It is constantly in use whilst the engine is running. An exhaust system on most vehicles usually comprises of four sections.
Diesel Particular Filter
Front Down pipe
Rear silencer box
Also on all vehicles registered after 1993 a Catalytic Converter is fitted. The most common section to become defective is the rear silencer as moisture gathers inside the box and attacks the metal. Corrosion from the inside results in hole, which causes the exhaust to blow. A defective exhaust will mean the vehicle fails the MOT test. It also causes excessive noise; thereby rendering the vehicle illegal which could lead to a fixed penalty fine. An unchecked exhaust may also result in fumes entering the car, which can lead to headaches, sickness and drowsiness.
Catalytic Converters & Diesel Particular Filter ( D.P.F )
Catalytic Converters & D.P.F are now fitted to all cars to remove harmful pollution from the exhaust gases. This expensive and high-tech component fits in the exhaust system and looks on the outside like a typical silencer box.
The Catalytic Converter & D.P.F is an integral part of the engine performance system and sensors control the gases entering and leaving the Catalytic Converter &D.P.F are controlled by the engine management system.
The Catalytic Converter & D.P.F effectiveness is measured by testing the exhaust gas emissions. This is an important part of the MOT and service requirements on all cars today.
