The Importance of Muffler Maintenance

Muffler and exhaust maintenance can be an often overlooked aspect of your vehicle's regular check-ups. Many motorists will only have their mechanic or technician inspect their muffler if they see, or more likely hear, some very obvious damage to it. Of course, this is not the best idea for your vehicle's long term health.

Your vehicle's exhaust system exists for two primary reasons. The obvious one is to reduce noise, but the more important one is to reduce your car's emissions. A poorly maintained exhaust system will cause your car to increase the amount of harmful gasses that it emits.

While most muffler systems will last for several years nowadays, it is still important to have it inspected regularly for any issues that may not be obvious at first glance.
