Your exhaust system contains components like Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) systems. Your Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and Selective Reduction Catalyst (SRC) work in the background to further dismantle those pesky pollutants. Regular maintenance is the key to keeping your truck both Earth-friendly and efficient.
The diesel Oxidation Catalyst converts harmful carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide and water vapour. The selective reduction catalyst lowers exhaust gas temperature to create a favourable environment for ammonia and nitrogen oxide reaction. This reaction turns nitrogen oxide into harmless nitrogen and water vapour.
At Ontario Mobile Truck Service, we provide top-notch after-treatment services to ensure your exhaust system complies with emissions regulations and operates as smoothly as possible.
Picture this: your DPF system clogs up with particulate matter like a morning traffic jam. What do you do? That is where forced regeneration comes in. We crank the exhaust temperature to high and effectively burn off the particulate matter. If your DPF system needs a manual override, our mechanics have the skills and the know-how to handle it.
The Risks of Exhaust Leaks
Leaks can let untreated emissions seep into your vehicle, exposing you to carcinogens. Common signs that you might be dealing with an exhaust leak include a check engine light, a malfunctioning indicator lamp, or an unusually loud engine at startup. If any of these bells ring, it is high time to get your vehicle checked.
Can You Drive With a Bad Exhaust?
By technicality, you can drive with damaged exhaust. But it is not safe or legal as it creates many problems on the road. Even if your exhaust has a small crack or slightly hangs, it is essential to see a mechanic for your vehicle. Especially if the exhaust has completely fallen off.
