Until strange noises are heard coming from the mufflers, not many drivers pay much attention to their vehicle's exhaust system. Even though the exhaust system is usually a silent component at work in the background of your vehicle, it performs important functions to keep your vehicle running efficiently. By the time you start to hear the muffler noise, there are already existing problems that will require repair.

By ignoring problems, they will only get worse, causing damage to your car, and possibly your health. The work of the exhaust system is to release the gaseous by-products of internal combustion. These by-products are normally very toxic. However, modern cars are equipped with catalytic converters that convert the toxic exhaust into non-toxic water vapor and carbon dioxide.

All Drivers, Be Aware of the 2 Most Common Reasons that can Cause Damage to Your Vehicle's Muffler and Exhaust System

  • In addition to the normal aging process of the exhaust system, because it is mounted on the underside of your car, it means it is exposed to a lot of road conditions that can cause havoc (especially salted or sanded roads in the winter). Have your vehicle inspected frequently for leaks in the exhaust system. Especially if the muffler is starting to get noisy!
  • The water vapor produced by the catalytic convertor can also cause problems. When driving short distances, such as your daily commute to work or school, the water vapor produced doesn't have enough time to fully evaporate or get expelled. It condenses back into water, which can cause rust in the muffler. Sulfur, another by-product in engine emissions, can form a corrosive acid that will eat away at the muffler if it mixes with the water.

If your exhaust system has developed a leak, you will find that in addition to a lot of noise, you will experience reduced fuel efficiency. More crucial, harmful fumes (such as carbon monoxide--another by-product in engine emissions) can potentially reach the inside of your car. As most people are aware, it only takes a small amount of fumes to impair your driving and your health.

Stay safe! At each oil change or tire inspection, have an inspection of your exhaust system to make sure it is in good condition.
