This is a scary question! As you know, the muffler is an important part of your vehicle’s exhaust system. Its job is to route toxic fumes away from the interior of the vehicle and out into the atmosphere. The entire exhaust system helps your engine maintain optimum performance and reduce pollution.

So what happens if your muffler falls off? Here are some things to know about driving with a bad muffler or no muffler at all:

  • If the muffler has a hole in it, carbon monoxide can leak into the passenger cabin and your vehicle is unsafe to drive. Carbon monoxide can cause dizziness, nausea, and headaches. Unconsciousness and death can occur if you are exposed to this gas for a long period of time.
  • Many cities have noise ordinances that have limitations for mufflers. You could get pulled over because of excessive muffler noise.
  • If you hear a clunking sound while the vehicle is running, it is possible that a broken piece of the muffler may have come off and is rattling in the exhaust system.
  • Over times, mufflers will begin to show signs of wear as well as defects, such as rust or holes.
  • A bad muffler could start to emit unusual thick smoke from the exhaust, which can turn into a dangerous situation.

Remember: If you start to notice any loud noises or unusual smoke coming from the muffler, or anywhere else in your car, it is advisable to have your vehicle inspected by a certified mechanic for safety as soon as possible!
