Many write off the exhaust system as merely a means of keeping your car quiet when it’s running but it’s much more valuable than noise reduction. A functional exhaust system ensures that our vehicles aren’t pumping harmful toxins into the atmosphere. You, your vehicle, your family, your neighbors, and the environment as a whole all benefit from an operational muffler and exhaust system. Let American Automotive of Fremont ensure you’re breathing the air you deserve.
The complete exhaust system begins behind the engine. A series of parts including exhaust manifolds, cylinder heads, oxygen sensors, the catalytic converter, and last (but certainly not least) the muffler makes up the system that transfers harmful gases into a more breathable alternative. This process also has an impact on your vehicle’s gas mileage.
The system itself is pretty complex, that’s where 30+ years of service comes in handy. We’re one of the most competitive providers of muffler parts and services in the area. Contact us today for a FREE Consultation.
Q: When is it time for a new muffler?
A: If your vehicle gets considerably louder as you accelerate, it might be time to get a new muffler. The noise alone isn’t enough to identify the source of your problem but it’s enough to let you know that you should have your vehicle checked out.
Q: How long do mufflers last?
A: If your vehicle was manufactured in the 90s or later, its muffler is probably built from stainless steel. The newer your vehicle is, the more likely it’s being controlled by computers that make it easier to gauge the progression of your muffler. On average, you can expect it to last for years or even the entire lifetime of the vehicle. Of course this varies on where you live and the overall condition of your vehicle, but if you want to be sure, contact one of our professionals.
Q: My muffler is dripping fluid, should I be concerned?
A: This is completely normal. It’s likely water condensation draining out of your car’s tailpipe. However, if you are still concerned, feel free to bring your vehicle by for an inspection.
Q: What happens if I don’t get my muffler fixed?
A: If the damaged muffler causes some sort of obstruction in your vehicle’s exhaust system, you may notice a decrease it its MPGs and performance. If it continues to worsen, your vehicle may cease to start.
