Interestingly it seems that Mufflers and pipes used on a single exhaust system, will generally last longer than dual muffler installations because all the hot exhaust gasses are propelled and pass through one single pipe - that is the one solitary muffler. As a result in a single muffler system temperatures generally reach a higher value sooner rather than later. Hence the corrosive moisture has a better chance of being heated up and evaporated into the atmosphere with less of a chance that will linger on metal surfaces and components to do its rusting job.
A catalytic converter is a mechanism used to decrease the amount of poisonous gas emitted from a combustion engine. Launched in the US in 1975, it is still widely used today but for countries without exhaust prohibitions the converter may not be included to somewhat lower the cost of the vehicle.
Taking a road trip can be a lot of fun, but not if the enjoyment is short lived by loud noises from your muffler. It can cause a horrible ringing in your ears as well as making it difficult to talk to other passengers. Besides the loud noises there are other reasons why it is important to keep your eyes on your muffler and exhaust. Mufflers make it more enjoyable to drive by reducing engine and exhaust noise. If you can suddenly hear the noise of your engine you might have to have your exhaust system checked out. Your muffler is attached to the exhaust pipe and isn’t just in charge of reducing sound but it is also key in keeping deadly gasses out of your car. If you think that you might have a broken muffler, don’t wait too long to get it checked out. Exhaust can enter the car when your muffler is broken. It is important that this isn’t put off. If your car is loud but you find out that your exhaust system isn’t broken, you might just want to look into getting a new muffler anyway. One that will filter out the noise better. A great muffler can make all the difference. You can also get a hole in your muffler that will cause the same loud noise. This can be fixed with a patch if it isn’t too big. Cars that are left in garages for long periods of time can experience major problems with corroding and other muffler problems. Many times when you start driving them again you will have problems with your exhaust and muffler that can result in having to buy another muffler or have other work done on the exhaust. Just because you cannot hear any loud noises doesn’t mean that you don’t have any exhaust problems. Every time you go in for an oil change or other repairs you should have your exhaust checked out. It might only be a leak, but even these shouldn’t be ignored. This can cause carbon monoxide to build up in the passenger compartment. If you live in an area where you experience hard winters or a lot of salt, your muffler and exhaust need to be checked more. The cold weather will leave condensation in the exhaust which never is hot enough to evaporate anything. This causes your exhaust to corrode.
Manifolds are intended to gather exhaust gasses spent by combusting fuel and channel them into one tube. They are often made of cast iron to endure tremendous heat.
