Kia Exhaust and Muffler Service

The exhaust system in your vehicle works hard to keep the air clear. Combined with the emissions system, they convert gases in the exhaust into breathable air and help the engine run more efficiently. The exhaust and emission system are composed on the catalytic converter, oxygen sensors, power control module, onboard diagnostic system, muffler, intake and exhaust manifolds, and exhaust pipes. Each plays a role in transforming gases and diverting them away from the vehicle. If you notice any problems, the service team at our auto service center in Kansas City, MO can quickly diagnose the issue with exhaust system service.

The Exhaust System Explained

Exhaust fumes contain a number of gases including carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides, and hydrocarbons. These create environmentally harmful smog. Exposure in humans causes serious health issues such as cancer, asthma and lung disease. Today, most vehicles are equipped with exhaust and emission systems that significantly reduce the number of pollutants released into the air.

For the exhaust system to perform, every element must be in good working order. While the system, with the catalytic converter, reduces the noxious gases from being released, the muffler reduces noise levels and helps the car operate with optimal fuel efficiency.

What Happens If I Skip Service

Oxygen sensors are positioned with the catalytic converter to control the flow of oxygen. This gives the engine better fuel efficiency, performance and allows the exhaust system to reduce pollution better. This is an important function but they are known to be sensitive. They require tight calibration to operate correctly. The power control module processes information from the oxygen sensors communicates adjustments for efficient operation. The onboard diagnostic system conducts tests and illuminates the check engine light when needed.

Ignoring issues can cause damage to various components. Bad oxygen sensors can damage the catalytic converter. If malfunctioning, they can send false readings. If they aren’t maintained, the oxygen sensors and catalytic converter are both costly repairs. Also, when the onboard diagnostics system illuminates the check engine light, qualified Kia technicians will be able to read the code and isolate areas that need service.

Signals that your exhaust system needs service includes loud noises or rattling underneath the car, reduced power or poor gas mileage. A malfunctioning exhaust system can also cause drowsiness when driving and the odor of rotten eggs.
