What does a vehicle exhaust and catalytic converter do?
Your exhaust and catalytic converter are crucial for reducing noise, improving fuel consumption, improving engine performance and preventing bad emissions entering the vehicle.
The catalytic converter reduces harmful gases such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides, by converting them into safe gases. You can avoid these parts failing by having the exhaust and catalytic converter regularly serviced and/or checked.
Exhaust warning signs
Look out for the following signs that your exhaust or catalytic converter isn’t working as it should:
A rattling noise may indicate loose brackets holding the system in place, roaring noises often come from the silencer, and hissing/popping could be coming from the muffler (or one of the pipes is leaking)
Blue smoke or white smoke could be due to a leak or breakage and should be investigated immediately, and
Rust, corrosion or cracks on the pipe could signify that the exhaust needs replacing
