What is an Exhaust Manifold?

You ready for an extremely simple answer? Here it is: the exhaust manifold takes the gases that are emitted from the engine, and sends them to the exhaust. That’s it! Depending on the style of engine, your car may have one or two manifolds.

Signs of a failing Exhaust Manifold

Tapping noise

If it seems like there are a million different weird noises your car can make it’s because there are. But the exhaust manifold noise is usually pretty unique. It sounds like a light tapping, or a clock ticking, and it will often go away once the car has warmed up, which your ears will greatly appreciate.

Exhaust smell

Hopefully this isn’t new information for you, but you’re supposed to smell the exhaust when you’re outside the car, not inside it. If it’s getting stinky in the cabin, you might have a very impolite exhaust manifold.

Check engine light

Like so many parts of your car, when the exhaust manifold fails, it can cause the check engine light to go on. You remember the last time you ignored the check engine light? You remember what happened? Yeah, thought so.

How urgent is an Exhaust Manifold replacement?

If you smell exhaust in your car, then the repair is urgent. Those fumes are toxic, and should not be inhaled. Even if you don’t smell exhaust, a malfunctioning manifold can cause deeper issues to your engine, and that is bad.
