Exhaust plays an important role in allowing a vehicle’s engine to “breathe” by removing toxic gasses and fumes from the engine and out the exhaust pipe through the catalytic converter. However, these components have a defined lifespan, as the same gasses and vapors will over time damage oxygen (O2) sensors in vehicles, precious metals in catalytic converters, and even the metals that make up these components.
Failure of these components can have consequences ranging from an unpleasant smell to an engine not running properly. If you think your vehicle’s exhaust system needs repair or replacement, contact the Import Auto Center. Regular maintenance of your exhaust system can save you time and money in the long run.
