Common Muffler Myths Debunked

Your muffler does a lot of things for your vehicle, but sometimes those qualities are amplified by malicious mechanics. These common myths are spread by those who want you to replace your muffler more than is necessary. Here are a couple of them.

One common myth is that your muffler needs to be replaced if there is fluid dripping from it. This is in fact false - that fluid is just water resulting from condensation. This is perfectly normal and doesn't mean anything is wrong. Another myth is that regularly replacing your muffler will improve your gas mileage. This is also untrue. Your muffler regulates how much noise your vehicle makes. This has no impact on your vehicle's mileage.
