The exhaust system is an important part of the car. The fuel in the engine burns while driving.
This results in exhaust gases that must be removed. The exhaust system has the task
to properly dispose of these gases and at the same time to muffle the noise of
this combustion in the engine. During the combustion in the engine, all kinds
of small explosions arise. These explosions make a lot of noise that needs to
be muffled. The
catalytic converter in the exhaust ensures that the harmful
gases are filtered before they are removed. A properly functioning exhaust is
important to prevent harmful substances such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide
and hydrocarbons into the environment. These substances are also very bad for
your health. Exhaust parts
consists of several parts: an
exhaust manifold, a catalytic converter, a
flexible part, a resonator exhaust and an exhaust backbox. To start with, the
exhaust is attached to the engine block. The exhaust gases from the cylinder
enter the exhaust through the manifold. Then there is a flexible part, which is
integrated between the manifold and the rest of the exhaust. The flexible part
absorbs the tilt of the motor during acceleration and shifting. This flexible
part ensures that the exhaust does not tear or break. You will then find the
middle silencer, also known as the resonator exhaust. A resonator exhaust or
middle silencer muffles the sound of the engine block. Without a middle
silencer, there will be a lot of noise coming out from the engine of your car.
Then there is the end silencer or rear silencer, this is the end part of the
exhaust. When you look at the entire exhaust, the end silencer is attached to
the middle silencer. This is attached with nuts, bolts and springs. The entire
exhaust is attached to the car with rubbers. However, per car, it differs how
the exhaust is put together. Some cars with a turbo also have a downpipe. Replace exhaust
We definitely do not recommend continuing driving for too long with a
broken exhaust. An exhaust is a part of the car that is subject to wear. Certainly,
in the winter, the exhaust system is sensitive to corrosion by moisture and
salt. This can cause parts to rust and eventually break. Therefore, it is
important that the exhaust system of your car is in good condition. A properly
functioning exhaust optimizes fuel consumption and prevents harmful substances
from entering the environment. Thus, the driving ability with a broken exhaust
is also influenced negatively.
Do you want to replace the exhaust? The costs for having the entire exhaust
replaced at a garage can easily reach up to £800 for parts and man-hours. The
costs per car will of course differ. It is also not always necessary to replace
the entire exhaust, but only a part of it. Do you want to save costs? Then you
can choose to replace it yourself. At Winparts you can easily find the parts
that you need for your car, simply use the number plate check.
In some cases, it is possible to repair the exhaust. Often this is only
possible by welding the exhaust. In some cases, you can also mount new clamps
and rubbers. Most of the time you will have to replace parts of the exhaust and
is repairing not possible.
