Why do you need a muffler/exhaust?
As mentioned earlier, every part of your vehicle has a purpose. The muffler and exhaust pipe are apart of an exhaust system. The exhaust pipe is used to push gases away from the engine. It also helps to prevent any harmful gases like carbon dioxide from filling up your cabin. The muffler helps to reduce noise while also improving the engine’s endurance and performance. This part is important in reducing the amount of noise pollution.
Signs you need to repair your exhaust and/or muffler
One of the most common things to look out for in deciding if you need to get your muffler/exhaust changed is sounds. If you hear a roaring noise, the muffler needs to be replaced. Clanging noises means that a part in the exhaust in loose and needs to be secured. A hissing sound can mean that there is a crack in the exhaust pipe, or your gasket is leaking. Chugging noises can mean there is a blockage in the system. Metallic vibration noises can mean something is loose or something is where it shouldn’t be.
Potential problems of a broken pipe
As with the other parts in our vehicles, driving with a broken exhaust for too long can cause more problems. Besides not being safe, it can also be illegal in some places to not have a working exhaust. Your fuel efficiency will be reduced, leading to you having to spend more money of filling up more often. There is also the chance of dangerous emissions entering your vehicle and leading to headaches and nausea. Your vehicle will also fail its annual MOT test, or emissions test.
