In order for your vehicle to keep running smoothly, all of its components need to be in good working order. Regular vehicle maintenance is the best way to ensure that everything is working properly. This includes the exhaust system. The exhaust system is most effective when it is neither seen nor heard which, unfortunately, means “out of sight and out of mind.”

Are you wondering, “What are the symptoms of a bad muffler?” If there are problems starting to develop in your vehicle’s exhaust system, you may notice one or more of the three signs below:

  1. Loud rumbling noise -- The muffler should operate quietly in the background. When something is wrong, it may sound like a roaring monster.
  2. Decreased fuel efficiency -- More trips than usual to the pump could mean that there is a problem in the exhaust system. Today’s newer vehicles are equipped with computer sensors that monitor fuel use and performance level so that problems can be detected before they become serious.
  3. Bad odors -- The job of your muffler is to funnel toxic exhaust fumes outside. A hole in the muffler could mean that those fumes could be circulating inside your car.

A vehicle with a well-maintained exhaust system gets the best gas mileage, has more power, and runs clean!
