What is the Function of a Muffler?

We know that a muffler is a device that reduces the noise emitted by the exhaust of an external combustion engine.  Although a muffler does not have any primary exhaust function it is designed to reduce the sound pressure created by the engine.  One of the negative side effects of a muffler is the fact that the increase of back pressure decreases engine efficiency.

When the flow of exhaust gases from the engine to the atmosphere is obstructed to any degree, back pressure arises and the engine's efficiency, and therefore power, is reduced.  A proper muffler system needs to be regularly maintained in your vehicle.  This is not only a matter of your family’s safety, but public safety as well.

If you begin to hear your muffler acting up do not hesitate.
