The Basics Behind Muffler Replacement Services at Michigan Auto and Tire

The muffler is responsible for dampening engine noise as part of the exhaust system, and releasing vehicle emissions into the atmosphere. All mufflers are designed to reverse the pressure and emissions generated during the combustion process and to prevent them entering the vehicle’s cabin. Mufflers are usually made of steel and are aluminum-coated. There are two types of in-vehicle mufflers. As part of the engine combustion cycle, the first type of muffler uses resonating and expansion chambers to minimize noise. When sound waves move through this type of muffler, high frequency waves collide and cancel each other out with low frequency waves, thus eliminating noise. A perforated pipe containing metal, fiberglass, or other sound-absorbing material is used by the other type of muffler. Maintaining maximum muffler efficiency is a must if you want to protect your passengers from toxic pollution while keeping your vehicle running fairly quiet.

Why Should You Have Muffler Replacement Services Performed at Michigan Auto and Tire ?

Like other vehicle parts, regular visual checks may facilitate proper muffler maintenance, but when contemplating the possibility of a muffler replacement, there are signs to be aware of. Muffler repairs can often be appropriate to fix a broken clamp or clasp, but mufflers can rust and rot over time during periods of heavy use. Sometimes road debris can damage a muffler. Vibrations are a symbol of loose hanger mounts coming from the muffler. Vibrations can also indicate that the sound-reducing parts have been corroded and have completely stopped working. Loud noises and soot-covered mufflers are sure signs of a poor muffler. A bad muffler can result in lower fuel efficiency and rough idling. Big clouds of smoke coming from the exhaust pipe are triggering inspection or replacement of your muffler. Our service personnel can restore efficiency to the exhaust system in your vehicle by removing a defective muffler.
