Is My Muffler Wearing Out or Damaged?
If your muffler doesn’t seem to be doing its job, the signs are quite obvious. The most obvious would be if your tailpipe or any portion of your exhaust system hanging loose or dragging on the road as you drive. If you hear a clunking or just a generally louder sound from your exhaust than normal, it’s time for repairs. Strange exhaust smells could also be a sign of damage and wear.
When Does a Muffler Get Old?
Like every part of a car, your muffler will not last forever. The more humid the area, and any exposure to road salt will reduce the lifespan of your exhaust system. Frequently driving over gravel at medium or fast speeds can result in damage or rust that eats through the metal. Otherwise, expect your vehicle to need a change in muffler before you reach 80,000 miles. Some might last longer, but it is wise to bring your vehicle in for service.
