What should you know about Used Exhaust Manifold?

What is an exhaust manifold?

The exhaust manifold transfers the fumes to the catalytic converter or the turbocharger collecting the exhaust fumes from the internal combustion engines. The exhaust fumes are released from the cylinder head through the inlet and outlet manifold guide. Acting as the conveyer, the exhaust manifold directs the exhaust fumes from the engine cylinder to the catalytic convertor. The turbocharge is found below the exhaust manifold in a turbocharged engine. The merged pipes allow the fumes to be exhausted from another cylinder promoting the exhaust fume flow in negative pressure. Cast in an alloy of iron or stainless-steel exhaust manifolds withstand extreme temperature released by the exhaust.

How much does the exhaust manifold replacement cost?

The exhaust manifold replacement cost depends on the vehicle and the model. The prices are according to the brand. If you are planning to replace the 2007 Mini Cooper, 2003 Honda Civic, 2010 Ford F-150, the price is $1865.94, $707.84, and $648.85respectively. OEM parts are within $648.85 and $1865.94. Aftermarket parts vary from vendors; however, buying from a trusted online store like Big Mouth Direct will ensure the best price for exhaust manifold replacement.

How does the exhaust manifold work?

  • As the exhaust stroke of the engine is turned on pushing the piston up the cylinder bore minimizing the chamber volume.
  • The exhaust opens and releases high-pressure exhaust gas into the header or the exhaust manifold.
  • An immense pressure difference is created from within the exhaust in the combustion chamber and the atmospheric pressure outside the exhaust system.
  • The pressure is balanced and equalized within the combustion chamber and the atmosphere lowering the exhaust velocity to a medium.
  • The leftover exhaust gas settles in the tail component in low pressure and the earliest stages compare with the favorable atmospheric pressure.
  • The sudden drop from high to medium affects the pressure in the combustion chamber lowering it to lesser than the atmospheric pressure level.
  • The lowering of the pressure absorbs and extracts the combustion products from the cylinder and during the span often overlaps with the induced intake charge from the partially open intake and exhaust valve.
  • This process of extraction is called scavenging and its degree is dependent on the shape of the exhaust ports, pipework and the engine speed.
  • The exhaust velocity is increased by the exhaust manifold or the header.
  • Each exhaust pulse is timed to appear in close sequence.
  • The low exhaust pulse pressure tail creates a wider pressure difference between the next pulse and the high-pressure head, increasing the velocity of the exhaust pulse.
  • The length and width of the primary tube must be carefully selected as a difference in the size, will affect the performance of the exhaust gas and the scavenging system.
  • If large, the exhaust gas will expand slowly; if small, the resisted flow will make the engine work harder and at a higher speed to expel the exhaust gas out of the chamber.
  • The reduced power will dilute the intake charge it receives.
  • The engines are created to produce more intake gas at a high speed the headers are designed to respond to the speed range.
  • Therefore, you should depend on primary tubes that offer sturdy torque power at higher engine speed.
  • For lower speed, narrow tubes are best suited.
  • For resonance tuned headers long primary tubes at low engine speed perform better.
  • Modern exhaust headers come with ceramic coating preventing rust and reducing heat radiation in the engine bay.
  • This decreases the air temperature entering the engine.

Pros & Cons of a used exhaust manifold

Pros
  • Better design of exhaust manifold results in peak torque achieved at lower RPM
  • Horsepower also increased.
Cons
  • Check for leakage from gasket failure, plastic parts, even wiring under the hood can burn from the heat of the exhaust gases. So, make sure that the exhaust manifold replacement spots no leaks.
  • If you smell gas inside the car when driving, have your exhaust manifold checked. One of the exhaust pipes or tubes may be damaged, releasing the fumes from the gasoline from all vents or the exhaust manifold replacement may not have been done correctly.
