Exhaust systems for cars have several functions: to reduce engine noise, reduce pollution, improve performance, fuel economy and direct poisonous gases away from the car and the people inside.

If you've ever heard a car engine running without an exhaust, you’ll know what a huge difference the exhaust system can make to the noise level. Inside a car exhaust, you'll find a deceptively simple set of tubes with some holes in them. They are designed to reflect the sound waves produced by the engine in such a way that they partially cancel themselves out. But exhaust systems are about more than sound reduction; they also control and reduce the emissions from the car engine using a catalytic converter. A catalytic converter is one of the most important parts of a car's emissions control system. Its job is to convert harmful pollutants into less harmful emissions before they ever leave through the car exhaust pipe.

Key components of your exhaust system include the manifold, catalytic convertor, mufflers and pipes. All exhaust parts must be in good condition to ensure your vehicle runs and operates safely and effectively. Most exhaust systems today use bolt-on bolt-off components so repairs can now be performed safely and quickly by repairers like mycar.

A muffler is a component of the exhaust system that is used to reduce the noise that engine makes and expel the fumes from your car efficiently.

Vehicles can create dangerous gases during the combustion of fuel. It is very important to have your exhaust system repaired when leaks or potential problems are found. Those dangerous gases can be harmful if they leak into the cabin of the vehicle, so proper exiting of the exhaust emissions is to direct them out through the catalytic converter, muffler and tailpipe.

At mycar we can identify problems and replace mufflers and catalytic converters, leading to reduced emissions and noise while driving. All exhaust system work is backed by our industry-leading Australia-wide guarantee.

With over 260 stores Australia-wide you’re sure to find a mycar store nearby for muffler and exhaust repairs. With stores located in major cities including Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.
