How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Broken Muffler?

It’s easy to tell when your exhaust system needs replaced or any of its associated components. Your car will be making much more noise than normal. But what does this mean for drivers?

What does your exhaust system do?

Your exhaust system is made of a collection of components, each of which is subject to wear and tear:

  • Exhaust manifold
  • Downpipe
  • Exhaust silencer
  • Catalytic converter
  • Exhaust pipes

The system of pipes and parts channel the exhaust gases from your engine back into the atmosphere. The pipes and parts are connected, each using exhaust gaskets. They’re fixed to your car using various exhaust mountings, many of which are made of rubber.

Reasons your exhaust system could need replacing

Your exhaust system is mounted underneath your car meaning it is constantly exposed to the poor weather elements that are likely to cause your exhaust pipe, manifold, silencer and any of the fixings that hold it onto your car to corrode.

Broken muffler symptoms

Tell-tale signs can involve large chunks of rust falling off any of the components or excessively loud noises coming from below. Chances are if you’re experiencing either of these, one or more of your parts has worn out and it’s time to take care of that exhaust pipe repair.
