Exhaust Manifolds & Converters

The exhaust manifold takes exhaust gases from multiple cylinders and channels them to the vehicle's catalytic converter and exhaust pipe. A catalytic converter is an emission control device that reduces toxic gases and pollutants from the exhaust. A leaking exhaust manifold will result in excessive noise and odor from the engine block and a potentially hazardous release of carbon monoxide fumes. It may also cause improper fuel trim, higher fuel consumption, reduced acceleration, slower warm-ups and catalytic converter failure. A failed catalytic converter will affect performance and acceleration and may make the car undrivable.
