The car exhaust system is responsible for removing emissions. There are two other crucial functions the exhaust system serves: to attenuate noises of combustion and to ensure a car is running with the most fuel efficiency.
Thus, an exhaust pipe must be carefully designed to carry toxic and/or noxious gases away from the users of the machine.
The exhaust system consists of a series of chambers and pipes that starts at the engine and ends at the back of the car with a tail pipe. Five main parts:
Exhaust manifold: the manifold is at the forefront of the exhaust system, attached to the engine.
Oxygen sensor: located in or near the manifold.
Exhaust pipes: these pipes carry exhaust gases through the entire system.
Catalytic converter: this important piece comes after the exhaust manifold and serves to convert the harmful carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon gases into carbon dioxide and water vapor, making the exhaust safer for the environment.
Muffler: the muffler acts as a silencer to the extremely loud noises of combustion occurring throughout the exhaust system. It is a metal box containing a series of tubes called baffles - some perforated - which waves must travel through, losing energy along the way and thus becoming quieter.
