You might not think about it often, but the exhaust system in your used vehicle is very important, especially in older models that have experienced more wear and tear. To avoid running into more serious problems down the road, it’s a good idea to have your vehicle’s exhaust system checked regularly, and make any necessary repairs as soon as possible.

Our passionate and dedicated team of ASE certified technicians possesses the skill and training to safely and efficiently diagnose and repair any issues you might be experiencing with your muffler or exhaust system. But how do you know when your muffler or exhaust system has a problem in the first place?
The main symptom of a failing muffler is an increased amount of noise. Your muffler’s job is to reduce the volume produced by the exhaust of the engine, so if your vehicle’s muffler is starting to break down, you’ll notice your car getting much louder than it used to be.
Most people know that a noisy car is indicative of a failing muffler, but the other warning signs are less obvious. Other red flags that your vehicle’s muffler and exhaust systems are experiencing issues and need to be repaired include:
• Foul odors. When working properly, your muffler should also carry exhaust fumes to the vehicle’s exterior. If your muffler is broken, these fumes will not be able to escape, which means they will start to accumulate inside your car.
• Reduced fuel economy. If you’ve been getting poorer mileage lately than you did in the past, a problem with your vehicle’s exhaust may be the culprit
