- The exhaust system of a car is, as the name suggests, the vehicle’s exhaust system. The exhaust system, contrary to popular belief, is a very important system in a car. Its functions include:
- Reducing the toxicity of exhaust gases (positively affects the environment)
- Noise reduction (reduces noise level)
- Removal of hot, toxic gases from the rear of the car (prevents toxic gases from entering the passenger compartment)
In addition, the exhaust system creates the required exhaust gas resistance, which affects the vehicle’s performance. Also, exhaust systems, especially sports exhaust systems, play an important role in the appearance of the car as well as in the sound, creating a pleasant tone.
In the common people, the exhaust system is almost always called simply “muffler”. But this is not entirely true, since the muffler is just one of the components of the exhaust system.
