If you live in Poway, CA or any of its surrounding cities, you may be subject to emissions testing. If you fail your emissions test, you may need to get your exhaust system repaired or replaced. The auto repair team at Poway Auto Repair can diagnose the issue and repair your exhaust system to help you pass your emissions test. While your exhaust system helps reduce noise output from your vehicle, it also significantly reduces harmful emissions from being released into the air. When your vehicle’s muffler and exhaust system functions properly, it significantly reduces your car’s harmful impact on the environment. It also significantly improves the functionality of your vehicle. Your vehicle’s exhaust system involves several components. The exhaust manifolds right behind the engine collect exhaust gases and connect to cylinder heads. Gases collected by your vehicle’s exhaust manifolds are analysed by oxygen sensors and refined by catalytic converters before being muffled by the mufflers. By the time these gases reach the muffler, the emissions system has made your car run smoother, quieter and cleaner. If any of the components of your vehicle’s exhaust system fail, your gas mileage and quality of air around you can be affected. The auto technicians at Poway Auto Repair can inspect and repair your entire exhaust system to ensure your vehicle is running cleanly.
