It is paramount to have a good exhaust system on an ATV to maintain performance and then you must also consider where you will be riding too. If you find yourself in tall tried grass or occasionally disintegrating a tumble weed who makes the misfortunate move to get in your way then you need to consider the fire hazards caused by your exhaust. The harder you ride the hotter your ATV gets and the more potential for a spark or high heat causing a piece of dried brush to light fire.
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.
Most auto owners do not give the exhaust system of their vehicle one minute though. That is until they hear a loud boom, exhaust hissing or rattling noises coming quite scarily from the rear of their car or truck. On top of that there are health and safety concerns from exhaust gasses. You can almost bet by the time they get to that point that they are going to be recipients of a large muffler or exhaust system repair bill. Is their any way that most motorists can extend the life and driving span of their exhaust and muffler system or systems?
