Doesn’t a Muffler Keep the Car Quiet?

The muffler on your vehicle is one part of the exhaust system. The muffler’s job is to keep your car’s engine sound down, or muffled. That’s not the end of the story, though. The complete exhaust system is designed to clean up the emission gases before they’re released into the atmosphere.

The exhaust system begins at the engine. As the exhaust gases leave the cylinders, they first pass through the manifold, then on to the oxygen sensor, the catalytic converter, and finally through the muffler. Before any of the engine’s fumes are released into the environment, they’re analyzed, and harmful emissions are reduced.

The entire exhaust system plays a vital role in your car’s performance as well as its effect on the environment. If you smell fumes or notice that your car seems louder than normal, it might be time to have it serviced. Stop by Bickford Ford when you’re in Snohomish and let our technicians take a look.
