Q: Muffler extremely loud

asked by on

My muffler is extremely loud and may need to be patched.

If your muffler has a hole or crack in it causing a leak, a patch is not a typical repair. If you are certain that the muffler is the cause of the problem, I would recommend having the muffler replaced with a brand new one. This will prevent any future issues that may occur due to repairing a faulty muffler. It is important to make sure that this service gets performed by a professional considering if it is not done correctly, your vehicle will sound very loud. Once the muffler has been replaced with a new gasket, your loud exhaust problems will be over.
