Check of a condition of components of system of production of the fulfilled gases


1. Having waited for full cooling of system of production of the fulfilled gases (not less than three hours later after an engine stop), attentively examine all its components, beginning from a flange of fastening of a reception pipe to a final collector, and finishing with a cut of an exhaust pipe. For providing free access under the car hang out it by means of the winch, or tire out on a platform or a viewing hole.
2. Check sections of system and the place of their joints for existence of signs of leak of the fulfilled gases, traces of corrosion and mechanical damages. Make sure of reliability of tightening of fixture. Check a state and durability of fastening of arms and rubber suspensions of components of system.

And — the Reception pipe
In — Rubber suspensions
With — the Catalytic converter


And — the Muffler
In — the Connecting flange of zadnikhsektion
With — the Exhaust pipe

3. At the same time examine the vehicle bottom on existence of holes, traces of development of corrosion, a divergence of the welded seams and other damages allowing the fulfilled gases to get into interior of the car. Seal all found openings with silicone or usual body filling.
4. The roar and many other extraneous noises during the movement often are a consequence of weakening of fixture of components of system of production of the fulfilled gases, or shifts of its sections. Attentively check a condition of arms and suspensions, pull pipes, the muffler and the catalytic converter, checking whether they adjoin to elements of the bottom or a suspension bracket. In case of need replace components of support of system.
5. On appearance of a cut of an exhaust pipe it is possible to estimate the general working condition of the engine with high degree of reliability. The consistence and color of the deposits covering the end of a pipe allow to reveal violations of adjustments of the engine. If the pipe is covered with black sazhisty deposits, or on it the raid of whitish color, the engine, together with a power supply system was formed, needs control.
