Does Your Commercial Fleet Vehicle Need Muffler Maintenance?
Experienced drivers know that many problems can occur in a car as a result of a muffler that is neither checked in time nor properly maintained.
It has to be said that the exhaust system of the car is complex. In new cars, it includes a modern technology that can limit the noise and toxins emanating in the environment. It features catalysts and sound dampers that require regular maintenance work.
According to specialists, the most common damage in mufflers is caused by exhaust fumes that contain water vapors that condensate and produce rust. Other significant damages to the mufflers result from shocks when running on irregular surfaces; they inevitably lead to the occurrence of vibration, the weakening of the fastening gaskets and, finally, the detachment of some components of the faulty exhaust system that leads to failed emissions test
. This requires regular check-ups of the entire evacuation system, the operation consisting of careful inspection of the sealing gaskets, checking the wear degree of all components as well as the fastening elements.
Even if it is a commercial fleet car, if you have a problem with the muffler it should be taken to a service, because the technical condition of the exhaust system contributes decisively to the improvement of engine power, torque and fuel consumption.
