At Fife Autocentres depot in Dunfermline we have all the latest equipment to diagnose, test, repair and replace car and light commercial vehicle exhausts systems.
Having an efficient and well working exhaust is important in maintaining a healthy vehicle, if the system works well it improves the fuel efficiency of the vehicle whilst at the same time it minimises the impact on our environment.
When an engine is running there are gasses created as a result of the reaction caused inside the engine, when these exhaust gasses are released they are collected in something called a manifold before being turned into water vapour by a converter and finally being released into the air.
Modern vehicles often have electronic management software and measurements of the oxygen level in the manifold is transmitted to the management system so that the right amount of fuel is added into the engine to maximize the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.
Exhaust systems that are not working effectively not only make the car more expensive to run but can leak poisonous gasses back into the vehicle which can be very dangerous for the driver and passengers, let alone the environment.
