Is it ok to drive without a Muffler

Is it ok to drive without a Muffler? What does a Muffler do? And other thoughts on Mufflers!!! Have you ever been next to a Vehicle that doesn’t have a Muffler? The noise can be deafening. Some other reasons to get your Muffler fixed: Driving without a Muffler can be Toxic, the Exhaust Fumes may leak within your Vehicle. The Carbon Monoxide over time may cause dizziness, headaches and nausea. The Smell itself it terrible. I mentioned earlier about the noise, which most people find offensive. The Muffler if broken over a period of time can effect your Autos Engines’ performance. Last but not least, you are polluting the air we breathe.

The word “Muffler” was used as early as 1530 it is a wrap or scarf for the lower part of the face. To cover or wrap or protect something. In the 1890’s referring specifically to an automobile, it was an Exhaust System Silencer!!!  So, in common person slang, it is any device used to deaden sound. The “Muffler” was developed by Milton and Marshall Reeves of Indiana! Yea Indiana!!! Milton who was a pioneer in Automobile Engineering made one to quiet his Motorcycle. The brothers then took it one step further and engineered a muffler for all automobiles. The Muffler is part of the Autos Exhaust System and is located at the bottom of your vehicle. They are specific to quieting engine noise, by a series of tubes that have holes in them throughout the Muffler and it cancels out the engines noises. From preventive maintenance to major repairs, Ricks Auto Service at 405 W.
