    Air Injection Hose – Repairs & Replacement in Hamilton

    What does the air injection hose do?New air injection hose Hamilton

    Inside the exhausts of modern vehicles, a system exists that reduces harmful emissions. This results in a significantly reduced amount of pollution leaving your car. It also means that some of these gasses can be recirculated into the engine via the EGR system.

    The air injection hose (or exhaust hose) is an important part of the emission control systems on most cars. As its name suggests, the hose introduces air into the exhaust. This helps to allow for the exhaust fumes to be converted into CO2.

    The air injection hose is usually made out of plastic or rubber and is exposed to very high temperatures. This means that it is prone to wearing out over time. If the hose fails, you may notice problems relating to your exhaust emissions and engine running performance.

    Symptoms of a damaged air injection hose:

    • Idling issues – One of the most common signs of a damaged air injection hose is weak idling. This happens because of tears or holes that form in the hose. Air rushes out, causing a reduction in engine power while your car is stationary. The car may struggle to retain engine power while it is idling, or it may stall completely.
    • Check engine light on – Your cars engine warning light will activate if it detects air is leaking from the exhaust. This is due to a lack of air, which can lead to reduced engine performance.
    • Increased emissions – An exhaust with a faulty air injection hose will not be able to clean the fumes properly. This will result in darker, dirtier smoke coming from your exhaust.
