Fire means smoke and fumes or emissions produced by a controlled explosion inside a vehicle engine. Car exhaust systems must remove these emissions and purify them as much as possible before they are released into the atmosphere. If the exhaust system of the car does not, it will need to be replaced. Navigate to this site to get more information about exhaust systems.
Some exhaust system components can be easily replaced with a wrench, others require welding equipment. Brackets can be used to hold connections between components. When working on the exhaust system, you have to lift it up on the safety posts, block the wheels and crawl under them.
Exhaust manifold life
The exhaust system collects exhaust gases as they exit the engine cylinders and then these exhaust gases are directed through the exhaust pipe to the catalytic converter. Vehicles with all cylinders have exhaust manifolds. Excessive engine heat can tear or warp the exhaust system. If the exhaust slips where it wasn't before, the exhaust manifold may need to be replaced. Most often, when repairing the exhaust manifold, the seal between the manifold and the engine block must be replaced.
To repair the exhaust manifold, follow these instructions:
First, locate the exhaust manifold of the car, locate the muffler and pipe under the car, and trace where it attaches to the exhaust manifold. Remove the screw that connects the exhaust pipe to the exhaust manifold outlet.
To replace the exhaust pipe, follow these instructions:
First, loosen and remove the screw that secures the exhaust pipe to the exhaust manifold. Then, loosen and remove the hanger holding the exhaust pipe under the car, making sure it doesn't fall off.
