The fuel tank, carburetor and engine exhaust are the components emitting noxious gases. The emission system not only protects you from these gases but also allows the engine to function properly. If you notice fumes or/and noises from this system, there is something wrong with the oxygen sensor, ERG Valve or catalytic converter. A failed emission system causes:
- Fumes and noises
- Bad fuel economy
- Poor performance
