Because the working of a car engine is loud, a muffler is used to reduce the sound. But the muffler not only limit the noise level, but also manage the back pressure of the engine. If your car muffler has a hole, then you can sense a carbon monoxide leak, so it’s very urgently to fix it right away for safety precuations.

In exhaust system tailpipe is extending from the back of the car.The silencer joins onto the tailpipe, then a series of more pipes joins the silencer to the catalytic converter and then the engine.The silencer consist of metal plates or tubes that have a series of holes bored into them. From the engine Exhaust gases emitted at very high pressures, and the holes in the silencer maitain the reduced pressure so that they leave the car smoothly.

Whether you need a new exhaust system, a replacement of your old muffler or current pipes, inspections, a new muffler, or simply work restoring current parts, contact your local Meineke auto repair near you.

The 4 functions of a car exhaust system
Car exhausts have four main functions:

  • Control noise.
  • Direct exhaust fumes away from the driver & passengers.
  • Improve the performance of the engine.
  • Improve fuel consumption.

An exhaust is a series of pipes that links the engine to a silencer and a catalytic converter.
Exhaust and catalytic converter maintenance allow the reduction of harmful emissions into the atmosphere.
