Learn About Volkswagen Muffler Repair or Replacement in Seattle
We've all had that neighbor who wakes everybody up by driving a loud car late at night. Don't be that guy. A loud exhaust noise is the key symptom of a bad muffler, and it's reason enough to get it replaced. However, in addition to annoying everyone around you, a damaged muffler can cause other problems. The gas mileage in your Volkswagen might decrease, and you could even start to smell exhaust fumes in the cabin of your car.
What Does the Muffler Do?
The combustion that takes place in your engine creates waste in the form of exhaust. So that it doesn't cause problems with the engine, the exhaust is expelled through the exhaust system. This system starts at the engine, runs along the underside of your Volkswagen, and ends at the tailpipe, where it's expelled into the air.
The muffler is located at the end of the exhaust system, and its job is to muffle the loud sound of the engine's combustion process. Its location on the underside means that it's exposed to rocks and other road debris. A stray rock that is kicked up and hits your muffler could cause damage. If this happens, it's best to bring your vehicle to an authorized VW dealership so that the technicians can inspect the muffler and repair or replace it as necessary.
