Victoria Muffler Repairs

Does your vehicle suddenly sound much louder than normal? Are you hearing a rattling sound? Is there a smell of exhaust in your vehicle when it’s running? If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, your muffler & exhaust system may need servicing.

Common Muffler Issues

The most common symptom you may notice if you have a problem with your muffler is your vehicle will sound louder than usual. This symptom can also be caused by a leak in a section of your exhaust system. If the sound of your vehicle has suddenly changed, bring it to the trained technicians at Marigold Service for a checkup.

Another sound you may hear that indicates a potential issue with your exhaust system is rattling. This is often caused by a loose muffler or loose exhaust pipes. There are many things that can cause a muffler or exhaust pipe to loosen, including rusted bolts and driving your vehicle over rough terrain. Loosened exhaust pipes are usually a quick fix and the experienced technicians at Marigold Service will have you on your way again.

Silent Muffler Issues

Not all muffler and exhaust system problems will alert you with a sound. Another symptom could include a change in your vehicle’s fuel economy. With the ever-increasing price of gas, you will want your vehicle to be using its fuel at maximum efficiency. If your vehicle’s muffler is damaged, it may no longer be able to expel fumes from your engine effectively, which may impact performance and increase emissions from your vehicle.

The most dangerous and “silent” symptom of a problematic exhaust system is a bad smell inside the cabin of your vehicle. If your muffler is damaged or another part of your exhaust system is leaking, the exhaust fumes which would normally be funneled away from the vehicle can seep into the vehicle instead. If your vehicle suddenly has a bad odour, call Marigold Service for a muffler and exhaust system inspection.

Choosing the Right Muffler for You

A muffler has two functions. First, it reduces or modifies the noise coming from the exhaust ports of your engine, and second, it moves exhaust gases from the engine to the tailpipe. Read more…
