The exhaust system in your vehicle is a series of pipes and boxes which are specially designed to channel harmful emissions away from the front of the vehicle. It also reduces engine noise and helps to maintain optimum fuel efficiency.
Can exhausts & van exhausts produce gases as emissions; some of which are toxic: carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxide (NO2), and nitrogen monoxide (NO). The emissions system in the exhaust is the only way to channel those noxious fumes away from the passengers. An exhaust which has failed can sometimes lead to fumes being drawn inside the vehicle. Exposure to exhaust fumes can make you feel drowsy, which could make you unsafe on the road. It is clear why it is so important to keep your exhaust system healthy.
Under UK law, a police officer can remove a vehicle from the road if he suspects that it is producing an excessive amount of pollutants from its exhaust. Also, a broken and noisy vehicle exhaust system will attract the attention of the police. Your vehicle will fail its MOT if the exhaust system has a fault that leads to emissions levels being too high.
The best thing to do is to keep your vehicle in an ideal condition. Car Clinic MOT Centre Ellesmere Port recommends that you have your emissions and exhaust checked at least twice a year. An expert should check the pipes for cracks, leaks at the joints, damaged hangers, worn mountings, corrosion, gaskets that have failed and measure the levels of pollutant gasses.
