We can replace a complete new system at our fitting centre in Chatham in Medway
A vehicle’s exhaust system is usually a network of piping used to guide exhaust gases safely away from the engine. The entire system guides the burnt gases normally to the rear and downwards. The complete exhaust system will be made up from a combination of exhaust pipes, boxes, silencers, catalysts and downpipes, depending on the overall system design.
The manifold is the part that is bolted to the engines cylinder head and is sealed to the head by means of a gasket. A common fault with a manifold might be a leaking gasket or cracked manifold.
The exhaust becomes extremely hot when the engine is running and touching any part of the exhaust can be extremely dangerous. Some manifolds include the exhaust catalyst as a part of its design.
The exhaust downpipe is generally bolted to the manifold with the help of a gasket or sealing ring and normally incorporates a flexible section to allow for engine movement in relation to a rigid vehicle body.
A catalyst converts toxic pollutants that are found in exhaust gases to less toxic pollutants. It’s correct title is catalytic converter and it is the part of the exhaust that controls the vehicle’s emissions.
A silencer is also know as a centre or intermediate box and is designed to muffle and reduce the loud noise emitted from a running engine. A centre silencer can also be a part of a central pipe that directs the exhaust fumes away from the engine.
The rear exhaust box is attached to the centre silencer or pipe and is designed to reduce noise further. The rear exhaust box normally has a tailpipe attached which directs the exhaust gases dowards towards the ground.
