Exhaust System Description
The exhaust system consists of an exhaust manifold, three-way catalytic converter (TWC) in catalyst case, exhaust
pipes, a muffler and seals, gasket and etc.
The three-way catalytic converter is an emission control device added to the exhaust system to lower the levels of
Hydrocarbon (HC), Carbon Monoxide (CO), and Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) pollutants in the exhaust gas.
Exhaust System Check
To avoid the danger of being burned, do not touch the exhaust system when the system is hot. Any
service on the exhaust system should be performed when the system is cool.
At every interval of periodic maintenance service, and when vehicle is raised for other service, check exhaust system
• Check rubber mountings for damage, deterioration, and out of position.
• Check exhaust system for leakage, loose connection, dent and damage.
• If bolts or nuts are loosened, tighten them to specified torque referring to "Exhaust System Components".
• Check nearby body areas damaged, missing, or mispositioned part, open seam, hole connection or any other
defect which could permit exhaust fumes to seep into vehicle.
• Make sure that exhaust system components have enough clearance from underbody to avoid overheating and
possible damage to vehicle underbody.
• Any defect should be fixed at once.
