Why should you care about your car’s exhaust system?
Because it is one of the few systems that can radically affect your car’s performance when driving in Garfield Heights, but also the health of you and your family.
A complex system, the parts of your car that manage the level of exhaust include a catalytic converter, a series of oxygen sensors and the pipes and mufflers that pump the exhaust out of the back of your car. Rad Air’s expert mechanics say that one of the critical functions of your exhaust system is to monitor the level of oxygen in the exhaust fumes that are sent out through the muffler to help improve fuel economy. One of the most common reasons that you may see your “check engine” light come on, an oxygen sensor failure can impact your costs for gas and your safety.
A breakdown in the exhaust system may affect the level of carbon monoxide in your car’s cabin. Experts in auto repairs at the Garfield Heights Rad Air Car Care & Tire Center location say that if the hoses in the cabin or engine spring a leak, you and your family can be exposed to harmful fumes. The role of the catalytic converter is to alter carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons to simple water vapor and carbon dioxide. As you can imagine, if your catalytic converter fails, it can be a devastating problem for your car and your family. Don’t take a chance with your health or the health of your family.
