Having high-quality car parts in your vehicle will help you get from Point A to Point B safely and securely. When your car needs to have parts replaced, bring it to our car service center. Our team can answer any questions you have about car service and parts, including what your muffler is designed to do.

What Does a Muffler Do?

Your car’s muffler lessens the noise that your engine makes when you’re driving or parking. Mufflers are made up of multiple tubes and a chamber with holes called a resonator, which work together like a boomerang to eliminate engine sounds.

Your muffler is also responsible for decreasing the pressure on your car’s engine and protects the exhaust system from damage, which is why most states require vehicles to have functional mufflers. 

If your vehicle doesn’t have a muffler that functions properly, you’ll be putting unnecessary wear and tear on your engine. Over time, this can lead to expensive repair bills or even a car that won’t start.  

Repairs and Maintenance 

Even though well-cared-for mufflers can last up to seven years, you should still have your muffler inspected and serviced at least once per year. Remember that keeping your muffler in good working order will help your used car perform more efficiently and reliably, and it protects your engine as well.  

If your car is overdue for a repair or inspection, bring it to Patriot Auto Group. When it comes to part replacements, our service and parts technicians can get your car back on the road in no time. Visit our car service center whenever you want to give your muffler the care it deserves!
