What do cars have in their exhaust gases to reduce carbon monoxide?
Cars do not have anything in their exhaust to reduce carbon monoxide. A Catalytic Convertor in the Exhaust System is used to remove Carbon Monoxide from the exhaust gasses.
What are exhaust gases maximum allowable readings for a fuel injected vehicle equipped with a catalytic converter?
a car exhaust is the pipe that sticks out of the back or sides of a car. There is a catalyst (an element) inside every exhaust in the world and what it does is act as a filter. For example a car engine produces both carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) and other products but they're not important in this case, a catalyst would hold some of the carbon in carbon monoxide to make…
When the engine of a vehicle consumes fuel and air to generate energy, the vehicle cannot retain the products of combustion; it would be too inefficient and expensive. The vehicle discharges those waste elements in the exhaust system. The exhaust gases are carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides, water vapor and soot.
What do cars with petrol engines have in their exhaust system to reduce the amount of carbon monoxide unburned hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides in their exhaust gases?
The catalytic converter reduces carbon monoxide, as well as unburned hydrocarbons. The EGR system introduces exhaust gas to the intake, creating a lower combustion temperature, and in turn less oxides of nitrogen. There are more advanced systems on newer cars, but these are the basics. .................... Curtis TheFreeMechanic.com (Free car care videos.
