Protecting Your Car Exhaust System

Both gas and diesel ignition engines have manifolds. There are intake and exhaust manifolds in cars, vans, dirt bike, and ship engines. Air and fuel combinations go into the engine through the intake manifold, and fuel discharges exit through the exhaust manifold. The opening manifold and how it works adds to the engine’s fuel efficacy.

How To Clean Exhaust Tips

Exhaust soot is typically unburnt fuel released during engine combustion resulting in black carbon buildup that can be a challenge to remove. Be sure to wear protective gloves and eye wear at all times. Exhaust tips should be cleaned immediately after you scrub your wheels, and before you begin cleaning the paint. Use the same wheel bucket, brushes, and wheel woolies for the exhaust as you did on the wheels themselves.

Never use a clean wash mitt on your wheels or exhaust, that you would later use on your paint. Make sure to separate the wheel and exhaust bucket from your paint bucket, by using different colors or simply using a marker. First, spray all purpose cleaner on the tips and allow them to soak for one to two minutes without drying. Then refill the bucket with strong wheel soap, dunk the woolie, and scrub the inner lip by twisting the woolie in your hand. Rinse and reassess. If the exhaust is maintained on a regular basis, this is all that will be required to keep it looking good

How To Replace An Exhaust Manifold Gasket

Used as a source of sealing any gap between the cylinder head exhaust port and the exhaust manifold, the exhaust manifold gasket is one of the most important gaskets on a vehicle. Not only does this component keep toxic exhaust fumes from escaping the engine before they are circulated through an emissions system, it also helps reduce engine noise, improve fuel efficiency and can impact the power your engine develops.

Before the exhaust comes out of the tail pipe, it flows through a series of exhaust pipes and connections in an effort to reduce engine noise and remove harmful exhaust gas and improve engine efficiency. This process begins as soon as the exhaust valve opens and recently burnt fuel is expelled through the exhaust port of the cylinder head. The exhaust manifold, which is connected to the cylinder head with an exhaust manifold gasket in between, then distributes the gases through the entire exhaust system.
