Why Do You Need a Muffler?
Your mufflers main function is to help channel or divert exhaust gasses out of the engine and away from the vehicle. Your engine relies on the process of internal combustion to operate. The result of this is carbon dioxide, which is deadly to humans. The compressive force caused from combustion forces pistons down generating the mechanical force, which in turn rotates the crankshaft. Then the exhaust stroke begins. During this process the exhaust valve opens within the chamber and the crankshaft forces the expanded gasses out by pushing the piston up. Each piston is attached to the crankshaft with an arm or rod, which is set to the center rotation. The rod acts as a gauge, so each time the explosion happens on the top of the piston, both the rod and piston push the arm down and rotate the crankshaft. Your exhaust system and muffler work together to one, help power the engine and two, expel the noxious gasses created during the process and three, stifle the noise this process creates. If your muffler is damaged then is makes it harder for the exhaust system to do it’s job.
Signs You May Need Muffler Repair
Your muffler is exposed to stress and heat every time your engine is running. Over time this causes cracks, holes, and rust will form. Below I have listed some common signs you may need muffler repair or replacement. It is also important to note that if you come across any of these problems you need to get them fixed immediately as it could be dangerous to you and those around you.
MPG is Decreasing: There are quite a few possible reasons why your gas mileage could be poor, such as bad spark plugs, clogged fuel lines and bad tires.

Your Engine is Louder than Usual: Vehicle today are deigned to run smoothly and quietly with the exception of high performance and sport vehicles. If you happen to notice your vehicle is running louder than usual you might have a damaged muffler.
