The Basics Behind Muffler Replacement Services at Wabash Tire & Auto Repair

As part of the exhaust system, the muffler is responsible for dampening engine noise and releasing vehicle emissions into the environment. All mufflers are designed to revert the pressure and emissions produced in the combustion process and keep them from entering the cabin of the vehicle. Mufflers are commonly made of steel and coated with aluminum. There are two types of mufflers in vehicles. The first type of muffler utilizes resonating and expansion chambers to reduce noises as a result of the engine combustion process. When sound waves move through this type of muffler, high frequency waves collide with low frequency waves and cancel each other out, thereby eliminating noise. The other type of muffler utilizes a perforated pipe, containing metal, fiberglass, or another sound-absorbing material. Maintaining optimal muffler performance is a must if you aim to protect your passengers from harmful emissions while keeping the operation of your vehicle relatively quiet.



Why Should You Have Muffler Replacement Services Performed at Wabash Tire & Auto Repair?

Like most vehicle components, routine visual inspections can promote proper muffler maintenance, but there are signs to be aware of when considering the likelihood of a muffler replacement. Sometimes muffler repair may be necessary to replace a broken clamp or clasp, but over time, through periods of heavy use, mufflers may rust and rot. Other times, a muffler may be damaged by road debris. Vibrations coming from the muffler are a sign of loose hanger mounts. Vibrations may also indicate that the sound-reducing parts have corroded and stopped working completely. Soot-covered mufflers and loud noises are sure signs of a bad muffler. A bad muffler can lead to decreased fuel efficiency and rough idling. Large clouds of smoke coming from the exhaust pipe is cause for having your muffler inspected or replaced. Our service staff can restore efficiency to your vehicle’s exhaust system by replacing a faulty muffler.
