Three Signs Your Muffler Needs Repair
The gases that move through your car’s exhaust system are quieted by your vehicle’s muffler, reducing noise as you operate your vehicle in addition to lowering pollution. But there are three warning signs that you should make a service center appointment here at Parker Johnstone’s Wilsonville Honda to have your muffler and exhaust system inspected.
Loud noises coming from your exhaust system are a definite signal that your muffler has an issue. The second key sign that your muffler is failing is a noticeable decrease in your fuel economy when compared on a month-to-month basis. A properly functioning muffler will funnel your car’s exhaust fumes away and outside of the vehicle. The third sign your muffler is failing is any bad smell you begin to notice inside your vehicle, one that can prove to be dangerous to your health.
An exhaust system and muffler that are well maintained keeps your car running smoothly and quietly.
