Frequently asked questions

What does a car's exhaust do?

Your Exhaust System performs 4 tasks: it reduces noise, it diverts waste gases away from driver and passengers, it improves performance and it reduces fuel consumption. The Catalytic Converter removes harmful gases such as Carbon Monoxide, and noise is reduced by the Silencer (or 'muffler'.) Finally on Diesel cars, a 'Diesel Particulate Filter' (or DPF) captures tiny soot particles before they leave the exhaust pipe.

How does a car's exhaust work?

Without an exhaust system, the first thing you would notice is the noise - which would be many times greater. Your engine is also designed to run with an exhaust's 'backpressure' on gases leaving the engine. Removing the backpressure reduces performance and burns more fuel. Finally your car would emit dangerous levels of waste gas without one.
+

Why do car exhausts rust?

The exhaust rusts for a couple of reasons: first, it is exposed to water, debris, salt and damage from materials thrown up from the road. Second, the exhaust undergoes extremes of heat and cold, as well as internal water vapour (a byproduct of internal combustion), all of which speed up the rusting process.

What does blue, white or black exhaust smoke mean?

It's useful to know your exhaust smoke colours! Black smoke means your engine is burning fuel inefficiently, creating soot, pointing towards a tuning, ignition or air/fuel mixture issue. Blue smoke means that oil is getting beyond where it should be in your engine and actually mixing with fuel and being burnt, probably because of worn valve stem seals or piston rings. White smoke indicates that coolant is entering the engine's cylinders, most likely due to a cracked or warped head gasket.

How much does an Exhaust System cost?

Good news - exhaust systems can often be bought and replaced in sections, meaning a cost-effective repair can be under £100. Typical full replacement costs are £150-£200.

How long does a car exhaust last?

A good quality non-stainless steel exhaust should last 5-6 years, and a stainless steel system could last 10 years. Note that life expectancy is hugely affected by driving conditions. Lots of short journeys cause moisture to build up in the system (because it doesn't get hot enough to burn it off), increasing the likelihood of rust. Lots of motorway miles has the opposite effect.

What is an Exhaust?

An Exhaust is a pipe at the back of a car that performs four tasks: noise reduction, diverting waste gases away from the driver and passengers, improving performance and reducing fuel consumption. The Catalytic Converter removes harmful gases such as Carbon Monoxide, and noise is reduced by the Silencer (or 'muffler'.) Finally on Diesel cars, a 'Diesel Particulate Filter' (or DPF) captures tiny soot particles before they leave the exhaust pipe.
