Is your vehicle sounding off? The muffler on your vehicle affects how loud it is, how well it performs and how fuel efficient it can be. Some factors to consider when choosing a muffler are:

  • the type of exhaust system on your vehicle,
  • the model of muffler you prefer, and
  • whether you'll be installing it yourself or leaving that to an expert.

Here are a Few Tips to Help You Get the Right Muffler For Your Vehicle:

  1. Understand your Options. It's important to understand the different types of mufflers that are available on the market today. Some are referred to as cancellation, absorption or diffusion models and are categorized according to the mechanism used to muffle the vehicle's exhaust and noise.
  2. Read your owner's manual. Your manual will list the manufacturer's recommendation for your specific vehicle. It will help you understand what type of muffler works best for the make, model and horsepower output of your vehicle. It also describes the warning signs of muffler malfunctions.
  3. Consult a qualified mechanic. A mechanic with experience working on your type of vehicle can explain how certain mufflers will alter the sound and performance ability of your vehicle.
  4. Choose between a single and double muffler. If you're not sure which kind of exhaust system your vehicle is equipped with (single or dual exhaust), consult your owner's manual or ask a mechanic.
  5. Decide on performance or gas mileage. Vehicle performance and speed are improved by increasing the exhaust flow through the muffler, which makes it louder and decreases fuel economy. You must decide which one is the most important to your performance or gas mileage.
  6. Obtain a warranty. Be sure the muffler you purchase has a warranty to protect you from malfunctions or damage. Some warranties include replacement trade-in options or discounts to make it less expensive to replace a worn-out muffler.
  7. Ask a professional to install the muffler. Installation by an expert will cost more than doing it yourself, but it will ensure that the muffler is properly installed and prevent any damage to your vehicle.
