In order for your vehicle to keep running at its peak performance level, make sure to have the appropriate vehicle maintenance performed as needed, including an inspection of the exhaust system. If your exhaust system is in good shape, your car will run smoothly and quietly, with low toxic emission levels and good fuel efficiency. Don’t wait to hear the rumbling of the muffler before you decide to have your exhaust system inspected.

So, what are the signs of a bad muffler? Here are six problems to watch out for:

  1. Excessive noise from the muffler – When working properly, the muffler should operate quietly in the background. When something goes wrong, it may sound like a roaring lion.
  2. Rattling – A failing catalytic converter may sound like someone is shaking a metal box full of coins.
  3. Low fuel efficiency – If you’re visiting the gas pump too frequently, it could mean there is a problem in the exhaust system. Newer vehicles have a computer sensor that monitors fuel economy and overall performance so a problem can be detected before it gets serious.
  4. Toxic fumes – A properly working muffler funnels exhaust fumes outside and away from the vehicle. If there is a leak or other problem, those fumes could be circulating inside your car.
  5. Vibrating – Anytime there is even a tiny exhaust leak, the car will vibrate. The bigger the leak, the more vibration you will feel. You may first notice the gas pedal vibrating, then the steering wheel, and then the floorboards, until you get the leak repaired.
  6. Check Engine Light – If the catalytic converter is failing, it could cause the check engine light on your dashboard to come on.

Take care of your vehicle! Have your exhaust system inspected by a certified auto repair technician if you’re experiencing any of the signs above.
