Your engine needs a more relatively rich mixture of air and fuel to ensure a smooth operation during cold starting. But after cold starts, your internal combustion engine will produce high levels of hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide in the exhaust gases. These could be harmful to the environment, so you need to further oxidize the unburned hydrocarbons. To address this need, your car has been equipped with an air injection system that helps in providing fresh air to the exhaust manifold to completely oxidize the unburned exhaust gases. A number of components comprise the emission control system, and one of these is the air pump.
Most vehicles are equipped with an air pump that can be seen just before the catalytic converter or near the exhaust manifold. This air injection system component is a centrifugal or reciprocating pump that conveys compressed air into the catalytic converter or exhaust manifold. A typical air pump is composed of vanes, belt, and stainless steel nozzles that help in performing its intended function. The engine belt is used to drive the air pump. On the other hand, the little vanes connected to it help in taking out water from the compression chamber. Lastly, the stainless steel nozzles are used in shooting air into the exhaust manifold.
