Just like you, your car's engine breathes in air. The air gets mixed with fuel and is burned, producing exhaust gases. Your engine gets rid of the hot exhaust gases to keep from overheating.Unburned fuel, however, can get carried and increase the volume of tailpipe emissions. The job of the air pump is to supply oxygen-rich air into the exhaust system to help combust the unburned fuel. It also helps to quickly warm up the engine after cold starts.Once the engine warms up, fresh air is redirected into the catalytic converter to further help in combusting unburned fuel. All these functions are aimed at reducing tailpipe emissions for cleaner exhaust gases. The air pump, however, can get clogged with thick carbon deposits through time.Such a failure would trigger a warning light on your car's instrument panel. If that happens, you might want to replace the pump. Carparts can help you.
