Exhaust Repair & Replacement

Exhausts at ATS Euromaster

The ongoing drive for tightening vehicle emission controls are leading to more complex car exhaust systems as well as MOT failures. 

In order to keep your vehicle running cleanly and efficiently it is sensible to check your car exhaust for damage or failure at least once a year or every 10,000 km, whichever comes first.

By simply visiting your nearest ATS Euromaster, our experts can inspect your car exhaust system free of charge and identify any issues before they start to cost you money or inconvenience. We’ll advise you about any potential work that may need to be carried out, or alternatively (and hopefully) give you the all clear. 

Our experts complete a visual inspection of the exhaust and its mounting to check for physical damage, leaking joints and corrosion as part of our FREE Vehicle Health Check service.

At ATS Euromaster, we offer a wide range of exhausts and emission system parts for cars, vans and 4x4 vehicles across our nationwide service centres, offering expert advice when you need it.

How Do Exhausts Work?

The primary function of an exhaust system is to:

  • control vehicle emissions
  • optimise engine efficiency
  • reduce sound

The main harmful gases and particles being controlled are:

  • Carbon monoxide
  • Hydro carbons
  • Nitrous oxides
  • Soot and other harmful particles

The exhaust system captures gases and particles from the combustion process in the engine to ensure they are expelled as safely as possible by the system.  Modern systems now include items like pipes, mufflers (or silencers), oxidising catalytic converters, diesel particulate filters, selective catalytic reduction systems, slip catalysts as well as emission sensors.  The introduction of the tighter emissions controls has led to the increased use of this type of technology to meet the requirements.

The exhaust system is held together and in place by various components such as clamps, flanges, gaskets and hangers. 

What Is A Catalytic Converter? 

Before the gases are expelled from the vehicle into the atmosphere, they may pass through a catalytic converter, which changes many harmful gases into less-polluting or harmful compounds.

The catalyst uses precious metals like platinum, rhodium and palladium set inside a housing to transform the harmful gases.

What To Look For When Your Exhaust Fails

Any of these tell-tale signs may indicate an issue with your exhaust. We recommend calling into your nearest ATS Euromaster centre for a free, no obligation exhaust inspection if they become apparent:

  • Excessive smoke coming from the exhaust
  • The exhaust is louder than normal
  • Knocking or rattling when driving
  • Visible corrosion, holes or damage
  • The exhaust appears to be hanging low or is dragging

What Can Cause An Exhaust To Fail?

  • Age leading to system corrosion and deterioration
  • Driving through deep water can rapidly cool a catalytic converter causing harmful damage
  • Bump starting cars can sometimes damage an exhaust system
  • Speed bumps and kerbs are often responsible for causing damage to car and van exhausts

A failed exhaust system could lead to noxious exhaust fumes being drawing into the vehicle cabin.

If the exhaust components have started to corrode, parts may potentially break or fall off.

Should you be in doubt that your exhaust is functioning correctly or if you require an exhaust replacement, call into your local ATS Euromaster Service Centre at a date and time to suit your requirements and our experts will offer a free visual inspection to provide you with peace of mind.
