If your vehicle is newer than a 1996, you will be subject to biennial emissions tests. If you fail your emissions test, you may need to get your exhaust system repaired or replaced. The team at A-LEN Automotive can diagnose and repair your exhaust system and help you pass your emissions test.
While your exhaust system helps reduce noise output from your vehicle, it also significantly reduces harmful emissions from being released into the air. When your muffler and exhaust system functions properly, it significantly reduces your vehicle’s harmful impact on the environment. It also significantly improves the functionality of your vehicle.
Your vehicle’s exhaust system involves several components. The exhaust manifolds right behind the engine collect exhaust gases and connect to cylinder heads. Gases collected by your vehicle’s exhaust manifolds are analyzed by oxygen sensors and refined by catalytic converters before being muffled by the mufflers. By the time these gases reach the muffler, the emissions system has made your car run smoother, quieter and cleaner.
If any of the components of your vehicle’s exhaust system fail, your gas mileage and quality of air around you can be affected. The expert team at A-LEN Automotive can inspect and repair your entire exhaust system to ensure your vehicle is running cleanly. Because of the chemical reaction between the steel and exhaust gasses, exhaust systems are extremely rust prone, and could prove difficult to work on in your garage. We are able to not only replace direct fit exhaust components, but we are able to custom build and weld certain pipes to save you money on repairs.
