Understanding Muffler Problems
There are many ways to tell if you need to have your muffler repaired or replaced. One of the primary functions of a muffler is to diffuse the noise made by the vehicle’s engine and help it run smoother. If your vehicle sounds like a racecar, then you probably have a muffler issue. Having a worn-out muffler can also increase gasoline consumption. If your muffler has a hole, it can affect the level of oxygen entering will indicate to your O2 sensors that more gas is needed. Some people actually intentionally drill holes in their muffler to make it sound louder. If you want your car to sound louder, there are more effective ways of doing so. Also, having a bad muffler can cause monoxide to leak into the passenger cabin of the vehicle. In many cases, because carbon monoxide is colorless, tasteless, and has no odor, you might not even know it is happening. It can cause sickness and can even be fatal.
