The muffler and exhaust are incredibly important components in all gas-fueled vehicles. The exhaust is made up of a system of pipes that carries the toxic fumes from the engine to the rear of the vehicle where they escape into the air. A muffler helps keep the noise from the engine’s pistons and valves muffled and quiet. The muffler is attached to the exhaust pipe and helps filter out the sound. Simply put, the exhaust keeps the driver and passengers safe from toxic fumes, while the muffler keeps the vehicle quiet.
