With big engine, every Dodge vehicle produces massive power that makes every
Dodge top class. And with bigger power requires more fuel combustion that produces
more waste material in the form of exhaust. The exhaust gasses produced by the
engine may come in the form of hydrocarbons or the unburned fuel, carbon dioxide,
sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, phosphorus lead and other metals
that once reached the atmosphere could be very harmful or even fatal. That is
why dodge has an efficient exhaust system that functions as a silencer and a gas
converter from exhaust gases into lesser or even safer gas.
After combustion the exhaust product directly goes to the exhaust manifold that
is attached to the engine particularly the engine cylinders with several valves
that acts as a chamber for the exhaust gases to pass through. All the gases would
then go through the main valve of the exhaust manifold to be transferred to the
next part of the exhaust system. Usually made from cast or nodular iron, the exhaust
manifold plays the role of the primary pipe allowing the safe transfer of the
exhaust gases from the engine to the exhaust system. Without the exhaust manifold,
the exhaust gases would go to different directions and would not be converted
into a lesser harmful gases.
After the gases pass through the exhaust manifold, it would directly go to the
catalytic converter that converts the gases into water vapor and carbon dioxide.
Other parts of the exhaust system include the oxygen sensor the measures how much
oxygen is present in the exhaust to achieve the minimum fuel economy. The muffler
and the resonator act as the silencer of the exhaust system. The tail pipe on
the other hand is the open tube that releases the exhaust gases to the air.
