A car is a very complicated piece of machinery. In order for the car that you have to run as intended, all of its components will have to work as intended. Taking the time to have a car inspected and maintained is the best way to ensure that everything is working as it should. The exhaust system on your car is very important and has a number of parts that help it run efficiently. The muffler is one of the parts that allows for the fumes that are created by the exhaust system to be filtered out to the back of the vehicle. The muffler will also help to muffle the loud sounds that a car’s exhaust system can produce. Each time that the car is ran, the muffler has to do it job.

The muffler on your car is exposed to a lot of damage over time and will start to show signs of wear. This part is intended to last for the life of the vehicle, but can be damaged way before then. The best way to ensure that your muffler stays in good shape is by taking the time to inspect it on a daily basis. The more that you are able to find out about the muffler and how it works, the easier it will be to notice when there are issues to be addressed. The muffler on a car has a long pipe that runs from the exhaust manifold and out the back of the car. This pipe is very hard to remove and can be damaged when trying to replace the muffler is you are not careful. Taking the time to allow a professional to perform the muffler replacement that is needed will allow you to get back on the road in no time at all.

Here are some of the things that you may notice when it is time to get your muffler replaced:

  • The car is running louder than usual
  • There is a noticeable exhaust smell in the cab of the car
  • The muffler is dragging the ground or has visible damage

When you begin to notice that your muffler is in need of repair, you will have to take the steps needed to get it fixed.

Andrew has come to fix my car on two occasions and both times he was on time for the appointment, professional , and extremely thorough in his examination of my car and diagnosis. He is honest and straightforward as to what my vehicle actually needs done immediately, and what I can hold off on for awhile. Money can be tight sometimes, so I do appreciate that. I highly recommend this mechanic!
