Signs Your Muffler Needs to be Replaced

An unhealthy or damaged muffler is very dangerous to you and your vehicle, so it is important to know when your muffler needs to be replaced. Keeping an eye on your muffler could benefit you in many ways, so here are a few signs that your muffler would need to be replaced:

  • Rust: By using a jack to raise the car, drivers can see if there are any holes or rust on their muffler. If there is a tiny bit of rust on the surface, that is mostly normal, as it does not penetrate the surface. If there’s visible rust and water dripping, that could mean there’s a hole in the muffler.
  • Fuel Economy: When your muffler is healthy, your wallet is full. Not many drivers know that a well-tuned exhaust is beneficial to their vehicle’s MPG, so keep a close eye on it. More trips to the gas station than usual could indicate that there's a problem with the exhaust.
  • Increased Noise: When your vehicle’s muffler has a problem, you will hear it. While a muffler may make a bit of a rumbling, it sounds like a roaring lion when there is an issue. Muffler’s are used to reduce the engine noise, so if there’s a problem, it won’t be able to do that.

Stay on top of your muffler service by both paying attention to the condition it’s in, as well as reading the owner’s manual of your vehicle. In your owner’s manual, you’ll find your vehicle's routine maintenance schedule, which allows you to bring your KIA to our technicians, who will work to keep it running like new.

Service Reviews

"This has been by far the best car buying experience. Our sales associate was wonderful and wasn't pressuring us to purchase. We would without a doubt buy another vehicle from him. The finance department was also amazing! Didn't push us to buy all the extras! Overall was an amazing experience and we will be sending referrals!" - user
