The exhaust system of a diesel vehicle is an integral component that plays a crucial role in the proper functioning of the engine. Southern Commercial Diesel specializes in providing exhaust system repair and maintenance services for all types of diesel vehicles.
As diesel engines burn fuel differently than gasoline engines, the exhaust systems of diesel vehicles must be able to withstand higher temperatures and pressures. Over time, the various components of the exhaust system can become damaged or worn, leading to decreased performance and increased emissions. It is important for diesel vehicle owners to regularly have their exhaust systems inspected and maintained by a skilled technician.
The exhaust system of a diesel vehicle consists of several key components, including the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, muffler, and tailpipe.
The exhaust manifold is the component that collects exhaust gases from the engine's cylinders and directs them into the rest of the exhaust system. A cracked or leaking exhaust manifold can lead to decreased engine performance and increased emissions.
Your truck’s exhaust system uses both a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to provide pollution control for your exhaust, converting harmful pollutants contained within exhaust gases into less harmful by-products like water and carbon dioxide. If either or both the SOC catalyst or DOC is damaged, it can lead to decreased fuel efficiency and an increase in harmful emissions.
The muffler is responsible for reducing exhaust noise and directing the exhaust gases out of the vehicle. A damaged muffler can lead to increased noise and decreased performance.
The tailpipe is the final component of the exhaust system, and it directs the exhaust gases out of the vehicle. A damaged tailpipe can lead to decreased performance and increased emissions.
Diesel vehicle owners should be aware of the warning signs that their exhaust system may need repair or maintenance. Some common signs of exhaust system problems include
