Many drivers know that the muffler is an integral part of the exhaust system. Its purpose is to direct toxic fumes away from the vehicle into the air. And, when the muffler and the entire exhaust system is in good working order, your engine will run cleaner (pollution is reduced) and the engine can keep running stronger and longer.

So what happens if your muffler is broken? Here are some things to know about exhaust systems:

  • If the muffler has a hole, carbon monoxide can leak into the passenger cabin, creating a hazardous zone for you and your passengers. Carbon monoxide can cause dizziness, nausea, and headaches, and if a person is exposed to it for long periods of time, unconsciousness and even death can occur.
  • A broken muffler can cause excessive noise. You may get pulled over in some cities if they enforce a noise ordinance for mufflers.
  • You may hear a clunking sound when your car is running if part of the muffler has broken off and lodged in the exhaust system.
  • The location of a muffler underneath a vehicle exposes it to climate and road conditions so that normal signs of wear and tear occurs over time. Any defects will also be noticeable.
  • A bad muffler could start to emit unusual thick smoke, which creates a hazardous situation.

Remember: If you start to notice muffler problems, have your vehicle inspected by a certified auto repair technician as soon as possible so that the safety of your vehicle is not compromised.
