What do I need to know about my exhaust?

Exhausts have four main functions:

to control noise,

to direct exhaust fumes away from passengers,

to improve the performance of the engine

to improve fuel consumption.

An exhaust is a series of pipes that links the engine to a silencer and a catalytic converter.
The tailpipe is the part of the exhaust that you can see extending from the back of the car.
The silencer joins onto the tailpipe, then a series of further pipes joins the silencer to the catalytic converter and then the engine.
The silencer contains metal plates or tubes that have a series of holes bored into them.
Exhaust gases leave the engine at very high pressures, holes in the silencer help  reduce that pressure so that they leave the car quietly.
Exhausts can corrode from both  inside and out.
How long your exhaust lasts for depends on how far and how often you drive your car rather than the length of time it has been fitted.
Vehicles used for short trips around town tend to corrode their exhausts in a much shorter time and distance than cars used predominately for long journeys.

The lambda sensor

The lambda sensor measures and sends oxygen content information back to the engine management system which makes second by second adjustments to the fuel and air mix being used by the engine. This makes sure that harmful gases are burnt efficiently in the catalytic converter. If the lambda sensor becomes faulty, the engine management system sends a default amount of fuel to the chamber - itís as if you are driving with the Ďchoke outí. You may be using more fuel than necessary and might notice your car is not running as smoothly.
