The exhaust emission control system or ECS, as it is often referred to is designed to limit the discharge of dangerous gases emitted from the engine as well as other components of the vehicle. There are three sources of gases from a vehicle i.e. the exhaust, fuel tank, and crankcase. The exhaust pipe throws out both unburnt and burnt hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, sulphur and carbon monoxide. The crankcase will emit unburnt hydrocarbons. Older carburettor vehicles throw out carbon monoxide. So, the emission control system works in various ways to prevent the emissions from entering the atmosphere and causing pollution.
Certain parts i.e. filters need to be replaced after a certain number of kilometres. The filter is where the vast majority of emissions are trapped. However, apart from replacement parts, the system parts may also fail. So, if you notice that there is an unusual amount of blue or black smoke coming from your vehicle’s exhaust it could be that the emission control system is not working. In most cases getting it fixed just requires visiting a certified mechanic and replacing a couple of worn out parts.
As mentioned above all emission control systems are different. Every manufacturer uses their own version which is then improved upon in subsequent models. We sell some of the highest quality parts by Elring and Vemo amongst many others. However, always search our website via part number to find the right one.
