An exhaust system is usually tubing used to guide waste exhaust gases away from a controlled combustion inside an engine. The entire system conveys burnt gases from the engine and includes one or more exhaust pipes. Depending on the overall system design, the exhaust gas may flow through one or more of:
* Cylinder head and exhaust manifold
* A turbocharger to increase engine power
* A catalytic converter to reduce air pollution
* A muffler in North America, silencer in Europe, to reduce noise.
Tailpipes. The end of the final length of exhaust pipe where it vents to open air, generally the only visible part, often ends with just a straight or angled cut, but may include a fancy tip. The tip is usually chromed, and is often of larger pipe than the rest of the exhaust system. This produces a final reduction in pressure, as well as prevents rusting of the tips, and can be used to enhance the appearance of the car. These are the least expensive parts of the system.
A muffler is a device for reducing the amount of noise emitted by a vehicle. On internal combustion engines, the engine exhaust blows out through the muffler.
Mufflers are typically installed along the exhaust pipe as part of the exhaust system of an internal combustion engine of a vehicle, to reduce its exhaust noise. The muffler accomplishes this with a resonating chamber, which is specifically tuned to cause destructive interference, where opposite sound waves cancel each other out.
We also provide complete maintenance services for all types of cars and trucks, including oil changes, brake work, suspensions, lowering strings, struts and shocks work.
If you have a question regarding an exhaust you want to purchase or maybe what kind of shocks will suit your car, Quick Muffler also provides free consulting.
