Get to Know Your Vehicle’s Exhaust System

Once you have an idea of what each component does within this key system, you can better understand the importance of prompt repairs and even identify potential issues that we can help you out with.

Exhaust Manifold

All the harmful gases, such as carbon monoxide, produced by your engine cylinders are centralized in the exhaust manifold then sent down a single pipe to the catalytic converter.

Oxygen (O2) Sensor

Sensors can be located throughout the system to check how much oxygen is in the exhaust, indicating if the fuel mixture is too rich or too lean – both can negatively affect fuel efficiency.

Catalytic Converter

Situated between the manifold and muffler, this component converts carbon monoxide and other gases into less harmful material such as water vapor and carbon dioxide (an inert gas).


Inside your muffler is a system of tubes, channels and chambers that reflect sound waves and dampen engine noise, as well as assist in further removing exhaust gases from the engine.


The exhaust system’s tailpipe is where converted gases make their way out of a vehicle. Prone to rust and corrosion, you’ll want to keep an eye out for signs you need a replacement.
