In your vehicle’s exhaust system, the manifold collects harmful emissions produced by the engine during the combustion process. The exhaust manifold is the first compartment to receive these gases from the engine’s cylinders. The manifold collects the harmful gases produced during the combustion process. The manifold contains an oxygen sensor that tells the engine control computer to increase or decrease the amount of oxygen in the fuel and air mixture assembled during the combustion process. After the leftover gases are collected in the manifold, the manifold funnels these gases into the rest of the exhaust system. Over time, this process of heating and cooling can eventually take its toll on the manifold.
A manifold replacement may be necessary if corrosion or other damage is found by a member of our service staff. Be wary of ticking sounds coming from underneath your vehicle. This could be a sign that your manifold is loose and bumping against other components in the exhaust system. A leak in your manifold will result in poor engine power and performance. Engine hesitation and hard acceleration are signs of problems with your manifold. Increased noise and sputtering indicate manifold damage. Consider scheduling an inspection of your manifold at the first sign of trouble. If leaks or damage are detected during a service, your manifold will be replaced. Routine inspections of your vehicle’s exhaust system can prevent your manifold from failing and potentially allowing harmful fumes to reach you and your passengers.
