Dangers of an Exhaust System Failure
If you disregard the signs of exhaust failure, it can lead to catastrophic issues such as:
- Sparks or extremely high temperatures can ignite fires
- Deadly gases such as Carbon monoxide can enter the cabin of your vehicle. Since CO is odorless and colorless, this can be highly dangerous for your safety
- If your vehicle has a dragging exhaust component, it can tear off completely and strike your rear wheels or other vehicles behind you
- Any exhaust components that are broken or torn off your vehicle and lying on the road can cause other vehicles to swerve and have an accident, puncture tires and also get caught up in the undercarriage of another vehicle to cause further destruction.
What Does Your Exhaust System Do for Your Vehicle
Located on the underside of your vehicle, the exhaust system is responsible for minimizing a multitude of operational hazards while your drive your car.
The primary purpose of a muffler is to decrease the volume of noise generated by the exhaust of an internal combustion engine. And your exhaust is required to remove harmful fumes and emissions generated by your vehicle. These two components together are what is referred to as the exhaust system of your vehicle.
Exhaust systems are vital for your safety since a defective exhaust system can cause potentially fatal gases, such as carbon monoxide, to leak into the cabin of your car. The catalytic converter, a key element of your exhaust system, helps convert dangerous gases to harmless ones that do much less damage to our environment. Lastly, your exhaust system is chiefly responsible for reducing the temperature of your car emissions, in turn securing other components of your vehicle from damage.
