Is your car still running smoothly and quietly?  In order for your vehicle to keep running at its peak performance level, make sure to have the appropriate vehicle maintenance performed as needed, including an inspection of the exhaust system. A good exhaust system will keep your car running smoothly and quietly, reduce toxic emissions, and improve fuel economy. Don’t wait until you start to hear rumbling sounds coming from the muffler before you visit your auto shop.

Here are six symptoms of muffler problems to watch out for:

  1. Noisy muffler  When working properly, the muffler should operate quietly in the background. When something goes wrong, it may sound like a roaring lion.
  2. Rattling Noises – A failing catalytic converter may sound like someone is shaking a metal box full of coins. Because it is one of the most expensive components of the exhaust system, have it inspected immediately.
  3. Decreased fuel economy – Filling the tank more often than usual could mean there is a problem in the exhaust system. Newer vehicles have a computer sensor that monitors fuel economy and overall performance so a problem can be detected before it gets serious.
  4. Toxic fumes – A properly working muffler funnels exhaust fumes outside and away from the vehicle. If there is a leak or other problem, those fumes could be circulating inside your car.
  5. Vibrating – If your car is vibrating a lot or losing power, it could be an exhaust problem. Make sure to have an inspection by a professional auto technician to find the source of the problem.
  6. Check Engine Light – If the catalytic converter is failing, it could cause the check engine light on your dashboard to come on.
