About exhaust systems

An exhaust system is used to carry the exhaust gases such as nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and water vapor away from the engine. The exhaust system helps the car run smoothly and quietly. The system consists of the exhaust manifold, which moves engine gases into the exhaust system, the catalytic converter which reduces pollutants from the exhaust, the resonator and a muffler to reduce noise, it also includes assorted pipes to connect the exhaust's components including the tailpipe. Catalytic converter reduces the amount harmful elements in the fume before it leaves the vehicle's exhaust system. All parts of an exhaust system are connected with a series of clamps, gaskets, hangers, and flanges.

The muffler is an important part of your exhaust system. The construction of the muffler includes pipes with holes which reflect the sound waves produced by the engine and reduce the noise. The exhaust system is produced from durable materials that can last life long. The exhaust system improves throttle response, power and mileage. Giving more power to the engine it makes vehicle go faster and consume less fuel.

The automotive engineers are looking for the ways to reduce carbon emissions and to make vehicles more fuel efficient. They found the answer in the exhaust system. There are several ways to increase the fuel efficiency and reduce the emissions: the exhaust's hit can be used to warm the engine coolant to keep the engine running warm, even when the engine is turned off. Inside, the car can also be heated using this technology. The amount of the nitrous oxide emissions can also be reduced, and using specific technologies the exhaust system can generate electricity. The most advanced technologies can be found in the 2010 Toyota Prius.
