The muffler is an important part of your exhaust system, designed specifically to control engine noise. This cylindrical component is attached to the exhaust and filters out the loud, explosive sounds that come from the engine.
If you look toward the back of your exhaust system, the muffler is a rounded box-like structure composed of an interior set of tubes that are engineered to reflect sound waves back and forth in order to reduce noise.
Even if you are not entirely certain how your muffler works, you will definitely know when it is not working. A damaged muffler typically does not go unnoticed.
Muffler Service & Repair
The most common symptom of a damaged muffler is a significant increase in exhaust sound. You may notice loud, rattling and vibration-related noises as well as a pronounced growl or roar as you turn on the engine.
When there is damage to the muffler it is unable to do its job – which is muffle the sound carried from the engine through the exhaust pipes. This results in loud exhaust noise, which could actually break local noise and sound bylaws.
Other indications of a damaged muffler include shaking while driving, consuming more fuel and engine misfire.
An engine misfire occurs when the engine produces a stuttering sound and jerking movement when turning on the vehicle. If any part of a vehicle’s exhaust system is damaged, such as hole in the muffler, it can cause the engine to misfire.
