Decades ago, exhaust systems were pretty simple. The spent gases vented from the engine through the exhaust manifold, into the exhaust pipe, and then out through a muffler. However, stricter environmental laws and regulations have significantly impacted today’s automotive exhaust systems. A number of new components, including your car’s air pump, must be in place to ensure that the engine emits as few harmful elements as possible. Also known as the smog pump, this secondary air injection system essentially pushes air into the exhaust system to help ensure that all unburned fuel is combusted. If the air pump is not working, excess emissions and pollutants will be released into the atmosphere.
Your car’s air pump is a vital part of your emissions system and helps reduce pollution from your engine. While there is no set life expectancy for these components, they do fail from time to time. If you suspect there’s a problem with your emissions system, or you’ve failed your emissions test, have your car diagnosed by one of our expert mechanics.
Having an operational emissions system is important for many reasons, including reducing pollution and ensuring that your engine runs properly. Without an operating air pump the pressure in your exhaust will be too low, the engine will run poorly, and fuel efficiency will decrease. Have a faulty air pump replaced promptly.
