Your muffler’s job is to reduce the noise of your engine. The most common muffler repairs are patching a hole, re-welding it back into place, or tightening a connection that has become loose.
If your muffler is seriously damaged, it will likely be more cost effective to replace it completely than to repair it.
Common signs of a broken or damaged muffler:
- Dragging or dangling tailpipe
- Loud exhaust sounds
- Misfiring engine
- Smelly exhaust
