The exhaust system on your vehicle is more than just keeping things quiet. It’s actually a complex system that’s also responsible for managing the fumes that result from the engine’s fuel and air mixture. The system monitors the toxicity level and adjusts it before emitting it into the atmosphere.

The exhaust system begins work on the engine cylinders. That’s where the exhaust manifold first comes into contact with the fuel and air mixture. From there, it’s sent to the oxygen sensor where the quality is analyzed. If it passes, the mixture continues to the catalytic converter. Any remaining harmful emissions are caught there before the mixture finally passes into the muffler and out the exhaust pipe.

If you notice that your vehicle seems sluggish or you’ve smelled fuel, it could be time to have it serviced. The next time you’re in Albuquerque, NM, don’t hesitate to stop in to our service center at Mark Mitsubishi and speak with one of our knowledgeable staff.
